John Kubiniec September 29
After enjoying John's lecture and trunk show in November, we decided to invite him back for a one-day workshop, created just for our guild. Complete details about the workshop, as well as registration information, can be found HERE.
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.
