Meet The Team
  1. JoAnn Laskiewicz-Smith - President
    I am a mother, wife, dog mama, and a hand quilter. I have been a hairstylist, hair colorist, computer technician, secretary to plumbing and heating contractor, computer mainframe programmer, construction secretary, and a caregiver for adults with disabilities. With all these different “jobs” I learned that I feel best to be in service to others. I was taught to hand quilt at the age when I could finally be tall enough to sit at the quilt frame. I was proud to be promoted from needle-threader. I found my place in hand quilting. It was a time to be in my own thoughts and to accomplish something. I have also crocheted, did crewel work, sewing my own clothes, and attempted to knit. But I always found myself going back to quilting. I have pieced tops, wall hangings, did some applique work, but my pleasure is in doing the hand quilting. I have found a group of ladies with same love in quilting at the Milford Senior Center. We meet three days a week to quilt, talk food, and solve the world problems. Finished quilts are sold or raffled to support the center.
  2. Lacy Janda-Miller - Vice President
    I have been quilting for over 28 years. My first quilt was all hand pieced and quilted, it took 3 years to complete. I have been past Vice-President of Heartland Quilters many years ago. Also President of Nifty Needles Quilt guild which has since retired. I enjoy quilting on my long arm "Miss Daisey" and also raise 5 pot belly pigs and a grand dog. I hope to make next year a fun and exciting one as your program chairman!
  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.
