We are very excited to have Kelli Thompson lecture and present her trunk show about a machine quilting technique called - ZENTANGLES. Fyi, Kelli is the sister of guild member, Karen Velupillai. There is a lot of talent in that family. Kelli's class is Sat., Oct. 7th. Space available.
Thanks to Joni for the Debbie Ingram Trunk Show last month. Debbie was a very prolific quilter and had made so many tops that there were enough for a very delightful show of her work.
Joni and her gang of quilter friends made the sale of Debbie's fabrics and notions a great success last Saturday. Stan and the Ingram Family are so very grateful that these items that Debbie loved are now shared with her friends and fellow quilters. There is still enough stash left for another sale in the future. Thank you for your patronage and assistance to the Ingram Family.
