We are still in awe of the prolific trunk show that Kathryn Lilley presented to us in February. She presented 75 lovely works of art, one more beautiful than the last. And her generosity in giving away several of them was unprecedented! Kathryn’s lecture was followed by a 2-day tote class taught by our own Laurie Shierer. What a gifted teacher! If you took her class, please bring your tote for March’s show and tell!
In March we’re looking forward to being with Piece ‘O Cake co-owner Becky Goldsmith. She’ll be talking about color in her lecture. Friday’s applique class – ‘Best-Ever Quilter’s House’ - has a few openings and there’s a wait list for Saturday’s ‘Pick Up Sticks’.
Be sure and stop by the Programs table at the next meeting to check out classes that you’re interested in.
Our speakers receive a welcome bag when they arrive here. Beer Nuts and The Olive Bin generously donate goodies for them and we encourage you to shop at these stores in Bloomington/Normal.
If you register for the April "Paint Your Own Barn Quilt" class, please remember to include the $15 supply registration fee. (One check for $45 (members) or $55 (non-members) is needed for registration for this class.) The $15 supply fee includes the 2'x2' primed paint board, paints, patterns, colored pencils, etc.
