This is our Joint meeting with PALS, so our meeting will be in Muskegon this year.

SEPTEMBER:

In September, we will be welcoming Lynn Carson Harris of The Little Red Hen.  She will speak and present a trunk show at our September meeting and teach a class during that same day (9 am to 4 pm) at Quilted Memories.  Her class will be on tiny piecing – precision perfect.  You will learn tips and tricks that make working small easier.  Lynn will show you how to piece tiny stars, baskets, and other small blocks.  With her tips for working small, you will be able to add a bit of tiny sparkle to your own quilt designs or make your own quilt completely from tiny blocks.  Cost is $65 for members and $75 for non-members.  You can sign up at June or July meeting
