Bonnie S. Dinsmore

Juried Member Since 2023

Bonnie Dinsmore and her husband moved to Pepperell, Massachusetts  in 1984 where they raised their 3 sons. Bonnie spent 20 years with the Groton Dunstable Regional School District as an early childhood specialist and elementary school principal.  Upon her retirement, Bonnie began to devote her time to her passion of working with fabric.  Her exploration with art quilts began after she found a piece of Japanese kimono silk.  It took her two years to get the nerve to cut into the beautiful silk fabric.  Hopelessly hooked, she now spends her days in her studio which was built by her husband and sons in the woods of their property.

Bonnie is an avid traveler and many of her quilts reflect her experiences in different countries.  She enjoys experimenting with new styles and techniques and enjoys making animals as well as landscapes.  When she is not working on her quilts, Bonnie enjoys writing, playing the Native American flute, occasionally the hammered dulcimer, and, most of all, spending time with her grandchildren.
