Featured Speaker: Lynne Fanthorpe

Happy Spring Quilters!

Does it feel like Spring to you? I hope the great weather we have come to expect (note the sarcasm) is just around the corner. Of course the best part of a rainy weekend is the guilt free time spent inside at our sewing machines instead of outside in the garden.

I’d like to thank Marika Dauberman again for such a wonderful presentation last month. I hope that after that she isn’t too shy to show her quilts…and dolls…at future meetings.

This month Lynne Fanthorpe will be coming to speak to us. Lynne began sewing at age 7 and turned to quilting in 1994. The owner of numerous sewing machines and like many of us just too much fabric Lynne continues to visit every fabric store she passes just in case. Primarily a bed quilt maker and machine quilter there are some surprises in her trunk show. I met Lynne at the machine quilting class she taught for the Grouse Mountain Guild and found her a joy to listen to and her machine quilting amazing.

You have three more months to show your TGIF projects at our meetings. If you can’t remember which projects you submitted feel free to email me.

For those of you not sunning in Hawaii for spring break – see you on the 26th!!
