Bio - Cindy Cephas
Cyntheila Cephas developed a love for quilting during her formative years. She often watched her aunt construct intricate works of art by hand, using just scraps of fabric, a needle, and thread. Her interest was ignited when she became a member of the Nubian Heritage Quilters Guild of New Jersey and her hobby developed into a small business, C.C. Quilts.
Cynthelia is best known for made-to-order family picture quilts, which feature transposed photographs stitched onto the fabric. Her work is currently displayed at various quilt shows and art galleries in New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia, PA.
In 2004, her work received third place honors among 800 other competitors by the State Quilt Guild of New Jersey.
