May 15 Workshop:  Prickly Pine Tree Tree Skirt / table topper




an upholstery shop.  

As an adult, she took her first quilting class and began sewing shop samples for her local quilt store. The shop owner kept telling her she needed to make a Mariner’s Compass but still she resisted.  She finally found a beautiful bed and breakfast in Tennessee that catered to quilters.

Her talk to the guild will be a trunk show.
