Melissa Quilter

Born and raised in northern Idaho, Melissa is a fourth generation quiltmaker, and cares for the marina her grandparents built in 1931 at Priest Lake. She studied at Occidental College, and graduated with a degree in biology from the University of Virginia. Compelled by a love of community, and as a lifelong student of dance, art, and music, she’s working to create a larger gathering space for her hometown at Priest Lake. Melissa is inspired by change makers like Congressman John Lewis and is dedicated to making #goodtrouble.
