Our Featured Artist: Linda Haddan
Linda Haddan has been involved with making art her whole life, from painting and sculpting to quilting. At age eight, she received a “paint by number” kit and promptly decided the picture would look better by changing the lines and colors. Her quilting career started in 1986 in Kearney, Nebraska, when she and a friend took a cake decorating class through the Adult Education program. As they walked through the Home Economics classroom to the kitchen, they noticed a group of about 20 women laughing and having lots of fun. This was the quilting class. The quilters were having more fun than the cake decorators. So the following semester Linda and her friend took the quilting class. At that time there were no quilt stores closer than 50 miles. As the class progressed Linda decided that a quilt store would be a great opportunity. Her first customers were from the next quilting classes.
Linda belongs to the Stray Threads Quilt guild in Woodinville and was involved with both of their quilt shows as program designer. She is in two small art quilt groups that she finds very inspiring.
She lives in Bothell with her husband of 47 years. She retired from sculpting Santa’s (miniature to life size) five years ago. When not quilting, she paints and enjoys working in her garden.
