well as the personal stories behind her quilts.
In April, Karen Combs will be coming from Tennessee for a lecture and workshop! Karen is
known for taking a traditional pattern and giving it her own unique "twist." She is intrigued with
quilts of illusions and has been designing quilts with a 3-D look for several years. She is also

Illusion.” On Thursday, April 16th, she will be offering her 6-hour workshop, “Crystal Star.” In
this class, you will turn the traditional quilt block, Crystal Star into a wall hanging that looks 3-D.
You will also learn how to use color to enhance the 3-D effect. (The workshop will be held at St
