Just a quick reminder – our 2016 series of Sisters of the Cloth starts soon. This year looks to be one of the best yet.
- July 16- Suzi Parron, author of "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement". Her presentation is both informative and entertaining as she explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning.
- September 17 - Jeanette Harms will bring several quilts made in the 1800s and tell the story of how she found them in her grandmother's attic.
- November 19 - Helen Lewis from the Iowa Speaker's Bureau will come dressed in period clothing and tell the story of Jane Addams, born in 1860, a pioneer, American settlement activist/reformer, social worker, public philosopher, author and leader in women's suffrage movement and world peace.
This year, our English Paper Piecing will be diamond shapes. I have also prepared journals for each student, including a pocket for lesson hand out and a monthly block pattern with more little surprises that follow.
