Influential Quilting Icon Alex Anderson Featured at AccuQuilt's First-Ever Gallery Exhibit
Alex Anderson has 12 of her favorite quilts displayed at AccuQuilt’s new headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska where quilters can stop by for a tour and stroll through the Gallery.
The AccuQuilt Gallery is located at the new AccuQuilt Omaha headquarters at 8843 S 137th Circle (near Cabela’s®, off Interstate 80) where visitors can enjoy artwork from influential quilters in the industry. Quilts from both the AccuQuilt private collection and special curated quilt exhibits will be presented in revolving exhibits throughout the year.
“I am honored and thrilled to have my collection as the first exhibit at AccuQuilt’s new headquarters. My quilts are exquisitely presented in an intimate museum-quality setting,” says Anderson. She has visited her exhibit on two occasions since its opening on June 22, 2012. She was the guest of honor at the 3rd Annual Barn Quilt Unveiling Event where she helped celebrate the grand opening of AccuQuilt’s new Omaha headquarters. In addition, Ricky Tims recently accompanied Anderson on a trip to AccuQuilt on July 16, 2012 where they starred in a series of videos promoting both the GO!® and Studio™ product lines.
Anderson and Tims are regular supporters and promoters of AccuQuilt’s products, the AccuQuilt GO! Baby® Fabric Cutter, GO!® Fabric Cutter and Studio™ Fabric Cutter. The three cutters have been called the most revolutionary advancements in quilting since the rotary cutter.
The next featured exhibit at the AccuQuilt Gallery will showcase quilts curated by Linda Pumphrey, AccuQuilt GO!bal Sales Manager, from August 1 through October 15, 2012. The ‘Quilts of Many Pieces’ exhibit will include antique quilts from private collections and their modern counterparts cut and created by the AccuQuilt team with AccuQuilt die designs.
