On February 11, 2016 Betsy Koss will be leaving her wonderful home in Boyne City to join us. Betsy’s trunk show is titled “Every Quilt Tells a Story: 1850-1960.” This should be very interesting as Betsy is a very talented quilter. She is a former member of GLHQ.
March 10, 2016 brings us Pat Sloan. The title of Pat’s Lecture is “Quilting with Expresso - Quilts Creating and Fun.” For this meeting only, please consider bringing cookies or a beverage for our snack break (no other snacks need attend!)
She will be presenting two workshops.
Friday, March 11, 2016 the workshop will be “Wild and Free Applique.” During this class you will learn to construct a background using many different and interesting fabrics and Pat will help with the choosing of appliqué fabrics and touch on her method of appliqué.
Saturday, March 12, 2016’s workshop is “Medallion Magic.” This is a class she is no longer teaching, but she agreed to do it for us. It’s a beauty and I’m sure you will love it!
Both workshops can be viewed on Pat’s website: www.patsloan.com
Registration forms can be found on our website. Cost for each workshop is $55.00 for members and $60.00 for non-members.
Classes are limited to 22 participants so that Pat has sufficient time to spend with each person.
*** Both the lecture and workshops will be held at:
First United Methodist Church of Troy
6363 Livernois Troy, MI 48098
