Bobbie McClure Long
Bobbie comes from a long line of quilters and/or seamstresses and owns several family-made antique quilts. Making things has always been a part of her life. Beautiful clothes made for her by her mother and aunt were the norm, and quilts were on the beds of her home as she was growing up. Bobbie continued that tradition by making clothes for her daughters when they were young. As her kids grew up, they were surprised to learn that everyone’s mom didn’t do that. Even then, Bobbie’s best work was in the embellishments and details.
She has gone from asking if it was OK to have her quilt square look more like a rectangle than a square, to having quilts win multiple ribbons at regional quilt shows and travel with national exhibits. In addition, she enjoys photography, computer graphic arts, and painting, all of which she sometimes includes in her quilts.
She is happily married to her best friend, Tom. They live in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania with their granddog, Juno. Bobbie has four adult daughters; three sons-in-law; four adult stepsons; four stepdaughters-in-law; and between Bobbie and Tom they have twelve grandchildren.
