Program:   Janice & David Jones are a husband and wife team who create artwork both
collaboratively and independently. Janice learned to quilt from her Great Aunt, who was a Mill Girl
in Lewiston, Maine and has honed her skills in the craft ever since. Janice’s quilts have won
awards and have been featured in magazines and shown in the U.S. and abroad. David began
