Quilters' Guild of North Dakota


Stephanie Lacher

Stephanie Lacher, our newsletter editor, has been a member of QGND for over 20 years. She has served as editor most of that time. “Nobody has kicked me out yet!” she says with a laugh.

Stephanie is from Fargo, although her family moved to the country where she attended Kindred High School, followed by Moorhead State University. She and her husband live in Fargo, not far from her childhood home.

Stephanie is a professional long arm quilter. She made her first quilt in 7th grade, as an alternative to sewing the jumper that was the class project. After her marriage, she returned to making quilts, mostly as gifts.

Getting involved in the Guild has been a great way to get to know people, she explained.

This is a personal quilt made in 2019. Mixes quilting with tangle patterns drawn with a sharpie marker.

I took a class online to make quilt portraits. This is my friend, Carol Scott. The winter I took the picture, she always wore a coat with a large fur collar. She always has her glasses either almost falling off her nose or on the top of her head.
Fabrics are a mix of commercial & hand dyed. 

Aviatrix was pieced by Elizabeth Barlow. Stephanie quilted it on her long arm machine.
