Geraldine Zillions - Texas Quilter Overcoming Odds

The Fort Worth, Texas Star Tribune published a story about Geraldine Zillions in its November 23, 2010 issue titled "After Years of Abuse, Mom is Finding a Way to Shine Again." If you can, take a moment to read Sistah Quilter Zillions' story. The early parts are hard to bear, yet 52-year old Ms. Zillions is using her creative energy to make hand-stitched quilts, jewelry, and wearable art to bring joy - and a bit of revenue - to her life now. Blessings!

Hi there....just found your blog, love it and became a "FOLLOWER." I'm a quilter from the central Texas area.
Take care.

I emailed the reporter asking how Ms Zillions art can be purchased but I haven't heard anything yet.
