May 21 Meeting: "My Great British Adventure Continues" with Norah McMeeking
I spent a quilter's Cinderella year living in England with my family. Quilting was the pathway to many adventures and wonderful experiences as both a student and a teacher! I met many of Britain's finest quilt artists, got to see amazing collections of textiles, and best of all, made lifelong friends. As the years have unrolled from that magical time, shorter return trips to the Festival of Quilts have allowed me to continue to explore the international world of quilting --and to meet up with my British friends at the same time! My talk describes my experiences and misadventures with humor and affection and showcases some of the finest work, past and present, of the European quilting scene.

June 18 Meeting: see Member Appreciation announcement above.
