Workshop Chairpserson 2019: Susie Emmons

     The speakers and workshops are for you, the member.  If you have a favorite speaker, contact Vice President  and see if she can get them for 2019 or to fill in a spot this year. 
     No matter how long you have been quilting, you can always learn something new.  Workshops give us the opportunity to try a new technique and not invest a lot.  You can learn new ways to do things.  If you are new to quilting it is a great opportunity to not only learn from the workshop but from your fellow quilters.    Never stop learning!  It's also a great way to have a day of fun!
