SAQA reported: “Ardis James, expressed her lifelong love for fabric and needlework in her own quiltmaking, ownership of a fabric store, and most significantly, in the quilt collection she and her husband Robert James built together. After Ardis’s death, seventeen artists donated twenty-six studio art quilts to the IQSCM in her honor. A selection from this significant and personal tribute is presented here in celebration of Ardis’s life and her generous and affirming spirit.”
