Roberta M Benvin

Roberta M Benvin

A beginning quilting class in an adult education program in 1984 initiated Roberta Benvin as a quilter. Four years later, she was elected president of the York Quilters Guild in Pennsylvania, and also began four years of employment in a quilt shop. Within a few months, Roberta was teaching classes at the shop and eventually took over the quilting classes for the adult education program. While working in the quilt shop, Roberta restored antique quilts in response to requests from customers. The restoration has since developed into a full-time business. Roberta's passion for antique quilts has led to her involvement in the York County Quilt Documentation Project of Pennsylvania which gave Roberta the opportunity to examine numerous early nineteenth-century quilts. Her recent quilting projects have focused primarily on making reproductions of antique quilts, resulting in her awareness of a need for authentic quilting designs from the early 1800s. Roberta has resided in York County, Pennsylvania, since 1969, and has three grown children.
