Laura will be presenting her workshop, "Couching Thread, Hidden Needle". "You’ll create several small art quilts while learning an improvisational method of construction with fused fabrics. These fused quilts act as your canvas for hand stitchery and take your work from flat to fabulous!" See artfabrik.com for more information. More information is available HERE. Laura's workshop will be preceded by a special lecture and trunk show at 7:00 PM on *Friday*, April 20th, at Lifelong.

After enjoying John's lecture and trunk show in November, we decided to invite him back for a one-day workshop. We're still working out the details, but it will be a Drunkard's Path project. Details are forthcoming.
Karen Miller October 13
In addition to asking Karen to give a lecture and trunk show in September, we invited her to give a one-day wool appliqué workshop. Some of you may know of Karen's lovely work. She's going to modify her "redbird" (cardinal) piece to incorporate wool appliqué borders rather than pieced borders. Again, details are forthcoming.
