Norene Skiles was featured speaker at CVQ's Virtual Earth Days Retreat in April.  Her "Use it Up" Program inspired all in attendance with dozens of ideas on using our stashes.  We've invited her back to explore making personalized labels for our quilts and dapple in fabric design.  Many creative quilters are using digital printing services, such as Spoonflower, to produce backgrounds for their quilts, or print multiple photos on fabric.  You won't want to miss this lecture!

Rhonda teaches, creates and inspires quilters and sewists to elevate their respect for that little 2" piece of steel, the SCHMETZ home sewing machine needle.  Lecturing at consumer sewing shows, guilds, dealer events and special presentations, Rhonda gleefully takes her dream job seriously contributing to the sewing and quilting industry as  spokesperson for SCHMETZ home sewing needles North America and marketing director for Euro-notions.
