PROGRAM 5-24-22. Nelda Stuck – quilter

    Redlands quilter Nelda Stuck will present the Redlands Art Association's program Tuesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. at the gallery at 215 East State Street. The public is invited. No charge.

    Stuck, co-founder of the Redlands Historical Museum Association, has specialized over the past 40 years in quilts depicting Redlands, and will be emphasizing artistic choices when designing quilts. All her quilts are hand-pieced and most are hand-quilted. Her two favorite quilts depict a bookcase with shelves filled with Redlands-titled books, and her "Those Who Made a Difference in Redlands" quilt of 218 signatures gathered in 1995 (historically important now that more than 90 of the signers are deceased) each having written how they wanted to be remembered in one hundred years. She says, “One quilt I made for my husband, Monte, showing his military career and medals (and they are colorful!)  Probably the most artistic of any of my quilts -- made completely of leftovers (and titled that). Turned out to be a challenge and fun, and based on Monte's layout-design.”

       She received her bachelor's degree in journalism in 1959 and her masters in radio and television news in 1969 from Michigan State University at East Lansing and worked 22 years as Community and the Arts editor for the Redlands Daily Facts, retiring in 2002. Nelda and Monte, RAA members for more than 40 years, recently published the Redlands photo book titled, "Redlands Movers and Shakers, Centennial to Millennium, 1980 to 2002," with proceeds going to the Museum of Redlands.
