LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR MARCH MEETING
In March we will be hosting Terry Aske as she presents her Trunk show. She will be bringing 30-40 quilts. That includes most of what’s on her website (a few quilts may not be available because they are away at quilt shows), plus a few that aren’t for sale. She generally shows them in categories – first quilts, pieced art quilts, applique art quilts, portrait quilts, modern quilts – and she will talk about my evolution as a quilter, her experiences entering quilt shows, submitting to magazines and selling her quilts online through Etsy. Visit her website at: http://www.terryaskeartquilts.com/Studio/
