Coppock to speak at Pioneer Area Quilters Guild

Improvisational quilter Patti Coppock will speak March 2 about “the Good, the Bad and the Unfinished” at Pioneer Area Quilters Guild.

PONCA CITY, Okla. — Patti Coppock is the featured speaker at the Pioneer Area Quilters Guild meeting March 2 at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 1904 N. Pecan Road, in Ponca City.

Stitch and assist is at 10:30 a.m., featuring Judith Miller demonstrating rug hooking. Social hour will start at 11:15 a.m. The business meeting begins at noon, followed by show and share of quilts and projects.

The program will begin around 1 p.m. Patti Coppock will speak about “the Good, the Bad and the Unfinished.”

Coppock has been sitting in front of a sewing machine since age 9. Encouraged when young by a number of state fair ribbons won for her oil paintings and sewn garments, she went on to major in art at Oklahoma State University. Later in life, she received a diploma in apparel technologies from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. Those skills were combined in the area of quilting around the year 1993.

Since then, numerous ribbons and awards have been won and tucked away somewhere in her garage. Recently, she can be found in her unfinished but happy home studio, experimenting with her new focus, improvisational quilting.
