Meet The Team
  1. Chris Parker - President
    I started quilting in 1993 when I joined the Heartland Quilt Guild with my mother. We actually learned from one of the members by sewing blocks together by hand. At that time I did not even own a sewing machine. Now I piece and appliqué, and I enjoy art quilts as well. I like to try new and different techniques and pass those along to new quilters.
  2. Lynn Davis - Vice President
    I joined the Guild in 2011
  3. Kay Butler-Treasurer
    Kay began her quilting journey over 30 years ago when she first made an Amish crib quilt for her newborn daughter. The quilting stitches of that little Amish quilt were real toe catchers, but that first project fueled a lifelong passion of quilt adventures and quilting projects. Kay is a past president of the Heartland Quilt Guild of the Eastern Shore and the Helping Hands Quilt Guild of Dover. She is an avid antique quilt collector, quilt historian and conservator and is a member of the American Quilt Study Group. She has taught in the Caroline County School for 31 years and is now embracing her retirement years teaching the next generation about quilting. Kay enjoys making patterns from antique quilts and reproduces those patterns with modern fabrics.
