Award winning quilter, Lauretta Crites, graduated from CalArts with a degree in Costume Design. She spent several years creating elaborate costumes with the Center Theater Group for major Los Angeles productions. She followed that with 10 years with the Los Angeles Opera – mostly as the Assistant Costume Director for the company where she had the opportunity to travel extensively to major world theaters.
She left opera and now focuses her creative and healing energy into the world of quilts. She divides her time between designing and teaching wonderful projects such as bed quilts, table toppers, purses and doing one of a kind art quilts. Her presentation “CREATE! 7 Keys to Unlocking Your Creative Power” is designed to teach us how creating can be easy and fun and that losing ourselves in sewing can be the best way to solve problems. Her empowering look at quilting will be transformative and have us looking at our quilts in a whole new way. See blog.laurettacrites.com for the latest in Lauretta’s quilts, classes and travels.
