Arleen Dale Kirtland
elcome to Arleen Dale Kirtland's website!
Arleen, while she won't admit to it, is a pillar in her community.
The seniors at the Bowie Senior Center, rely on her to teach both quilting and knitting. She has done so for many years and her students adore her - many have become her best friends.
She also teaches quilting/sewing and knitting privately.
Her church, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church of Bowie, Maryland, also has come to recognize her generous nature. She helps coordinate various worship-oriented activities, knits and quilts faith-based articles while heading the Prayer Shawl Ministry at Holy Trinity (such as the Quilt Full of Prayers, and her own style of prayer shawls), and mentors the Education for Ministry classes. She has recently been licensed as a Lay Preacher.
She has also authored two books, The Adventures of Tulip the Grey Tree Frog, and Blossom the Giggly Mouse.
And, she manages to do all these things while helping her husband manage their Peaceful Valley company - which is an Earth-friendly lawn care service.
