May Meeting

Just because I say it every month doesn’t keep it from being true:  I can’t believe that another month has gone by !!!!!

Our May meeting featured a special speaker: Klaudeen Hanson, who started the Sun Prairie Quilt Show (one of the two longest running shows in the U.S) and is an internationally renown and respected quilt judge.  During her talk, I alternated between “I’ll NEVER enter a quilt show” and “I could absolutely enter and should”!!!  Where do  you line up?

Klaudeen stressed that she does not want to discourage people from quilting and entering shows by making negative judging remarks.  If we all stop exhibiting, there won’t be any shows to attend.SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC
