Through the generosity of Ina Stentiford’s husband, Chuck, we are pleased to be able to offer a full scholarship to an aspiring art quilter. Our dear friend, Ina, who passed away last year, was one the most ardent supporters of Art Quilt Tahoe. Ina, along with her dear friend, Mimi Wohlberg, attended the first AQT conference in 1999, and became part of our AQT family. Ina was always supportive of students who sought her advice during workshops because of her generous spirit and enormous artistic talent. Thus, we are pleased to perpetuate Ina’s memory with the continued love and support of her family and friends.
