Featured Speaker: Dianne Stevenson

Thank you to Colleen Bell, Krista Hennebury and Carol Piercy for doing mini-workshops at our September meeting. Feedback from the program was very positive and we hope to do this type of format again at a future meeting.

Dianne Stevenson will be our guest speaker for our October meeting. Dianne has taught and lectured internationally and throughout BC, and was named 2010 CQA/ ACC Quilt Teacher of the Year. Recently, some of our members enjoyed her workshop “Canadiana in Cloth”. Her trunk show “Feed Sack to Fancy Things” traces the introduction of feed sacks for commerce and the ubiquitous flour and sugar sacks in the early 1900’s.

Coming in November: The “Good as New Sale.” Reserve your table; there is no charge, but you must reserve in advance by contacting Rita Douglas. Here is your chance to sell extra fabric, sewing notions, quilting books, magazines, crafts or any other items you wish.
