Quilting expert to discuss new book

Local expert quilter and author Cindy Claycamp will talk about her new book, “Quilts Reflecting the Poetry of James Whitcomb Riley,” at 6 p.m. March 3 at the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.

The public is invited to this bicentennial book talk, where Claycamp will autograph and sell books, too.

James Whitcomb Riley was an Indiana writer, poet and best-selling author in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Claycamp is one of only under 100 certified quilt appraisers approved by the American Quilt Society in the United States. She has been quilting almost 40 years and has owned antique and fabric shops for many years.

She sells quilt and antique pieces at quilt and craft shows through her business, Quilting Memories. She recently was president of the Indiana State Quilters Guild and is on the board of directors for the Quilters Hall of Fame.

Claycamp and her husband, Paul, live in the Cortland area and are parents of five children.
