What a fun zoom lecture, Flying Colors Trunk Show with Timna Tarr. Timna is known for making fun, colorful, award-winning quilts. I hope you got to join us for a trunk show of her quilting journey. She talked about her design and color choices, as well as the personal stories behind the quilts. This was a very lively fun lecture. Her website has lots of information and she offers several online classes with lots of information. I enjoyed the mosaic one.
December 13, 2021 Monday Chris Hornby
Wooly Tree Class
Program: Christine D. Hornby, Fiber Artist We are back in person for the program with Chris, a member of our guild (who is not a quilter). She loves fiber and working with needle and threads. Since her background is as a fine artist, her skills and love of colour give her a unique view of the fiber arts. Her main business is Rug Hooking but her program will cover that craft, other ways of working with wool and wool quilts. She will offer two workshops one to make a “Wooly Tree” and one to make a “Wool” Wreath. Inquires of Rug Hooking lessons are always encouraged. More information on the program page.
