Rose Ann Hunter mixes a passion for history with the love of fibers, and fabrics, to create one of a kind historically inspired pieces of folk art. she teaches at  large conferences, guilds,  and museums and enjoys seeing the aha moments with the ladies that has created something so simple but so powerful in their finished project. her body of work is in traditional rugmaking 1790 to 1850. Old becomes new again. she like to take historic techniques and bring them forward to present day to create something useful by recycling and repurposing textiles.
She is one of the artists in residence at Old Sturbridge Village and has been so for the last 12 years where she demonstrates and teaches workshops to ladies from all parts around the world…..

Helen Weinman Obituary

Posted on

FYI for members what knew her

CENTERVILLE – Helen E. Weinman Konigsburg of Centerville, MA, died peacefully in her sleep on March 26, 2018. She is predeceased by her husband David P. Konigsburg and her parents Samuel Weinman and Sylvia (Sellinger) Weinman.

She was born on September 9, 1948 in Hartsdale, NY, one of three children. Her brothers are Herbert M. and Lawrence Weinman. She loved her nieces and nephew Stephen, Suzanne, Virginia, Daryl, Naomi (deceased) and Shara. She took great pride and joy when they had children of their own. They were all the children she never had.

She attended Ardsley High Schooi, NY and went on to Syracuse University and Pace College to study Business. She worked as a paralegal in New York City. She also lived in Pompano Beach, FL and Florence, Italy before moving to Cape Cod in the 80′s.

Her love for the Cape kept her here until her untimely death. While on the Cape, she started teaching quilting, first to small groups, and as her popularity grew, she turned it into a thriving business. She opened her first quilt shop, Heartbeat Quilts in 1993, and as that grew, she moved into larger space near the West End Hyannis Rotary. She was a Professional Quilter, fabric and quilt pattern designer and a published author of quilt pattern books for children. She had a great following of loyal customers that shared her passion for quilting and the fabric arts. She held her very own unique Quilt Camps in Maine, NH, and on Cape Cod. She made them fun and a true learning experience. Her students were mostly repeat attendees, which is a testimony of her skills. A true woman entrepreneur with business acumen that made her successful.

Her generosity knew no bounds. She supported her community on many levels from Habitat for Humanity, Walk For Cancer teams and the Cape Cod Synagogue. She never turned away from participating in any way she could. She was beloved by her many students, friends and loved ones for her open heart and straight talk. She loved to cook and share her home to all she cared for. She had a zest for life that was contagious.

She met the love of her life David (Deke) Konigsburg in Centerville. They were married for five short years when he passed away last August. Her friends and loved ones feel that she died of a broken heart.

A private service was held at the Cape Cod Synagogue on April 4. It was officiated by Rabbi David Freelund. Donations in her
