Unfortunately, Katie Lewis was unable to attend our meeting on Saturday due to a family illness. We are keeping her in our thoughts and prayers.
Subsequently, the meeting was conducted solely through Zoom. Janelle Schwartz of Dotty & Grace graciously volunteered to pinch hit for Katie. Janelle came to us virtually from the Middle Eastern country of Jordan and shared her process of collage applique. Janelle Schwartz is the quilter and pattern designer behind Dotty & Grace. She loves to explore different quilting techniques and inspire others as a sewing and quilting teacher. Her love of quilting started just over 10 years ago when she made her first quilt stitched with fabrics she had collected as souvenirs from a trip to Japan. Janelle loves to explore new creative techniques and incorporate these into her quilt creations. Janelle's programs and workshops are full of inspiration. Through the demonstration, samples and interaction, the format is fun and informative for all levels of quilters.
. If members come across a link or other information they would like to share, they may forward it to President Brooke Stambersky to be shared at the next meeting.
For those on vacation and trips this past weekend, you were missed. We hope to see everyone on August 4th. Until then!
