Quilts, Inc. names Judy Murrah as Vice-President of Education

Judy Murrah HOUSTON—November 15, 2005—Quilts, Inc. today announced the promotion of Judy Murrah to Vice-President of Education for the company. President Karey Bresenhan tapped Murrah—who moves from Director of Education—for the newly-created position. She joins Bresenhan, Executive Vice President Nancy O'Bryant, and Vice-President of Operations Wilma Hart at the top level of company management.

"Judy has been with Quilts, Inc. almost since the inception of the company," Bresenhan said. "She first worked as an unpaid volunteer who could always be depended upon to show up when we needed her and do a super job at anything she was asked to do. Once we discovered those talents, we never turned loose of her!"

Quilts, Inc. produces trade and consumer shows in the U.S. and Europe for the quilting and soft crafts industry, including the annual International Quilt Festival in the company's hometown of Houston. Festival is the world's largest annual quilt show, sale, and quiltmaking academy, with close to 55,000 attendees.

"When I took the managing position in the Education Department in 1982, the teaching staff, classroom space, schedule of events, and number of attendees [at Festival] was less than 25% of what it is now," Murrah continued.

"The growth has been invigorating and enriching for me. I have found lots of joy andinspiration in working with the education staff, the teachers, and Karey and Nancy. I am honored they have put so much trust and confidence in me. This feels like a life-long achievement award. And it makes me want to make the education segment of our shows even better and more efficient!"
