On August 7, 2021 Our own Kathleen Herbach gave a wonderful trunk show called: “Lessons Learned”. This was a Zoom presentation where every guild member had a front row seat. Kathleen shared over 75 quilts with lots of close up of her amazing designs, quilting, binding and finishes. Now we have the inspiration to add a little something extra to our next projects.

5th, 2021 the guild welcomed Kathleen Riggins. Her lecture Combining Designs in Modern Ways
was held via Zoom. This was a fast-paced lecture filled to the brim with
excellent quilting information. We learned about straight line quilting ideas, grid

Building Blocks of Free-Motion Quilting, has more than 57 ideas for combining
quilting motifs. https://kathleenquilts.com/

Kathy shared methods for finishing those special art pieces and answered tons of questions. Looking forward to what is yet to come from Kathy.
