Program: "My Journey in Quilting"
Because speaker is in Australia, the meeting will start at 2:30pm.
The lecture will include how she started her journey in quilting not realizing that her ethnicity (Indian) would have such a huge influence on her - and even surprises her to this day when she designs and "colors" her quilts. She will also talk about her process of designing - from paper to fabric and her teaching methods - giving her students confidence in their color choices, how to speed up the prep process and lastly why they should have fun sewing quilts!
Speaker: Irene Blanck
This meeting will be in-person and available via Zoom. If you are not a member and would like to attend via Zoom, please contact Contact Us to request the link.
