Noreen Tretick was born in 1944 in Nova Scotia and lives in Canada and part time in Hawaii. As a master of her craft, her quilts have been recognized with many awards in her time.
“The art of quilting gives me immense pleasure, and for the past 25 years I have thoroughly enjoyed the contemplative process of hand quilting. My inspiration to create was derived from many generations of accomplished needle workers. Today I am inspired by family and culture that surrounds me, and in particular, the beauty of Hawaii. Hawaiian designs fit beautifully with my passion for hand applique and hand quilting.”
