February 28th: Born and raised in Indianapolis, IN, Mrs. Yvette Ellis is a retired educator with 20 years of experience. She has been quilting on and off for about 1 year. She became a member of Akoma Ntoso in November 2018 jumping right in to guild activities. Her favorite thing about quilting is that she loves learning something new. She also loves playing percussion instruments and growing cactus plants. She has a special love for anything Adinkra and is in the process of making a quilt to honor her love for Africa and all things Adinkra. Her favorite fabric colors are blue, maroon/purple, and orange. We take this time out to say a very special “Happy Birth Day” to Mrs. Yvette! Enjoy your season!
