July 2017 – Newsletter

Had a Terrific Meeting with Wyoming Members in Gillette, WY

It was a small, but talented group that met in Gillette, WY. We are standing beneath a piece by Joan Sowada, our host.  Also Heidi Heuerman.  We talked about our work, art and various techniques.  Great fun was had by all.  Look for a meeting coming to your neighborhood in the (hopefully) near future.

More Members Showing their Work Nationally

Four members from our region were juried in to H2Oh! which opened June 25th at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky.  Congratulations to Gay Lasher, Judith Duffield, Margaret Abramshe and Regina Benson.
