Verna Hiebert has been sewing since she was a young girl but she began to quilt when she worked alongside many expert quilters at MCC in the 1980s. Verna learned to be a skilled, precise hand quilter and worked on many of the MCC raffle quilts over the years. Although Verna has been unable to quilt in recent years, she has given us many treasures that will be shared.
