Vice President - Janice Peterson

In November, we will enjoy both a lecture/trunk show at the guild meeting and a workshop the
following day by Barbara Persing. In her lecture, Pictorial Art Quilts, Barbara shares her
unique journey of becoming a master of art quilts. The notion that these designs pertain solely
to those “Art School” graduates of the quilting arena will quickly dissipate as she uses humor
and knowledge to describe the disappointments and successes of becoming an awardwinning
quilter. Attendees will gain enormous insight into the various techniques and products
she utilizes, which ultimately bring her captivating pieces to life. So, cast aside your theories of
“who” and “how” these one-of-a-kind quilts are made. After one hour, Barbara will have you
filled with all the confidence needed to embrace and make pictorial quilts an attainable part of
your designing world! In the 6-hour workshop on Thursday, November 21st, Barbara will teach
you her concepts and techniques for raw-edge applique using glue basting and no fusible using
her pattern, Iceland Poppies. Use the attached Workshop Registration Form to sign up for this
unique workshop!!


In December, Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill will present Aurifilosophy, a program designed to unlock
the mystery of thread and help all users achieve brilliant results! Sheri, a certified Aurifilospher,
will present a fun and informative presentation and trunk show of her award-winning quilts that
will increase your knowledge of thread, tools, uses and tips. Exclusive Aurifil resources and
swag for attendees included!
