Featured Speaker: Lorna Shapiro

Happy New Years! I do hope you all had a brilliant time over the holidays.

In November I dropped the hint that Anna Smith was coming to speak at this month’s meeting. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond her control, Anna can’t come to this month’s meeting. Luckily Lorna Shapiro, our March speaker, saved my bacon and was happy to switch with Anna. Phew!

You might recognize Lorna as the owner of Quilters Dream Fabrics, a vendor of beautiful Asian and batik fabric at our last
two shows. Lorna will share her quilting journey, as well as tips and techniques she has learnt over the years.

This talk is just an appetizer for Lorna’s workshop, “Techniques and Artistry of Set-In Circles,” which she is teaching in
April. Sign up for this course opens at our January meeting.

The TGIF Club is fully in gear now. Registration is closed and again in November the number of registrations far exceeded our expectations. Now it’s time to get some project finished. Just a reminder to make sure that you let the Programs Committee know when you are showing a finished project so that we can enter your name for the draw prizes.

I would tell you who is coming to speak after the elections in February but I’m not going to jinx myself. You’ll have to wait until the February newsletter.

All the best in 2013…now get quilting!
Andrea & Your Program Committee
