November 2, 2019 - Hand Quilting

Our program this month will be presented by our very own, Didi Salvatierra. Didi has been stitching professionally since 1990. Her quilts reflect a love of color, spontaneity and often humor. Many of you are familiar with her attention to detail and embellishments that infuse each piece of her work with vibrant visual impact. Didi has been hand quilting for others, teaching workshops and presenting lectures for many years.

Our Hand Quilting program will be multi-faceted. Didi will present a lecture, "Everything You Wanted to Know about Hand Quilting" followed by a hand quilting demonstration. Cindy Lammon will be assisting with a hands-on station for you to give hand quilting a try. All supplies will be provided. You'll even be able to take some batting samples home for further practice, thanks to a generous donation from Hobbs Batting.

There will also be some modern quilts on hand so we can learn how hand quilting can be incorporated into modern quilts! If you have a modern quilt that has some hand quilting, please bring it to the meeting to share with all of us.
