Creativity in Reno

Judy Goza, T-2 Expediter at the Reno P&DC, won First Place for her 16” x 21” individual wall hanging at the Nevada State Fair in Reno, NV on August 20, 2008.

The hand-embroidered, machine quilted wall hanging of the Reno MSC area (in 1994) for ZIP Codes 894, 895, 897, and 961, (representing the largest land area of any SCF), was inspired by the original art work of former employee, Gary Wolf, and was drawn in 1994. This Blue Ribbon wall hanging took Judy approximately four months to complete just the embroidering.

Judy says she has always liked the drawing and when her Supervisor, Woody Blair, retired in 2006, Judy spent seven months making him a 5’ x 5’ quilt of this map. She then decided she'd like to have one of her own which became the winning entry.

I like her creativity! How can we use our creativity at work to make the postal service better?
