OCTOBER MEETING HIGHLIGHTS

Our guest for October was

Guest Speaker_MShe provided us with a great presentation of her quilts and bags, and discussed her journey to become a pattern designer, and to become known to the quilting world.  She brought a large variety of quilts and bags to share, along with lots of patterns and notions.  Her sale table did a brisk business during the meeting, and we are anxious to see all the bags that were made at the workshop held the following day.
