Featured Speaker: Marika Dauberman

Hello Lions Gate Quilters – Have you been reenergized? Has the start of a new year inspired the start of new quilting projects or maybe you pulled out all your UFOs and are working on them.

We have a special speaker this month. Marika Dauberman is a Guild member and a good friend. You’ve seen Marika’s quilts in the Album of Quilts, often with a ribbon on them, but you have never ever seen a quilt at Show and Tell. Marika has an amazing history in craft which started in South Africa and continued in Canada when her family immigrated in March 2001. I met Marika at Quilt ‘Til you Wilt at The Cloth Shop in Edgemont Village. I love Marika’s use of colour and design. She is fearless and her embellishing is magical.

I really encourage you to come to the meeting in February, participate in our elections and stay and hear Marika’s journey.

TGIF Club has revved up our show and tell. It’s awfully fun seeing your projects coming out of the closet. We have four more months to show our finished projects. Let make it worth it!

Teaser…Our March speaker is a fantastic quilter who is a member of the Fraser Valley Quilt Guild. I met Lynne Fanthorpe when she was teaching a free motion quilting class this past Saturday. I really enjoyed Lynne and am looking forward to see her trunk show. More on Lynne in our March Newsletter.

See you on February 26!
