Virginia Dambach

“You can never have too much.”

When it comes to fabric (especially large florals), vintage laces, buttons, beads and trinkets, ribbons and trims. Virginia Dambach’s motto is You Can Never Have Too Much. She applies the same motto to Christmas ornaments, wrapping paper and gift boxes.

Virgina’s parents named her for their home state, but she has never lived there. Her father was in the Army, so the family moved frequently. Virginia went to high school in Fairbanks, AK. She moved to Fargo from Las Vegas in 1984. You might recognize her face from pledge breaks on Priarie Public TV, where she was the Development Director for many years. She took a quilting class in Las Vegas, but she really got into it here, when she discovered the Quilters’ Guild (and quilt shops.)

Hand applique is her most favorite technique. She also indulges in crazy quilting and other embellishments.

Virginia has served in many capacities in our organization including President, Publicity and Education Chair. She is a true ambassador for the Joy of Quilting. She makes friends quickly, and then convinces them they should become quilters, too.

She and her late husband, Bob, were blessed with two daughters and six grandchildren.
