The Company


Ann Anastasio and Lani Longshore have been entertaining quilt guilds as Broken Dishes Repertory Theatre since 1994.

They discovered the power of combined thought years ago. Whether commenting on life and quilting, or guiding students in their workshops, they will always give you at least two ways of looking at any situation.

Ann is a quilting teacher who specializes in elegant quilts from simple designs.
Lani waits for the fabric to speak to her before she begins a quilt.

Together their quirky personalities led them to believe that they could sing and dance about quilts in public.
