The education committee is having fun looking for new learning opportunities for our membership.
I am excited to announce that we are bringing Diana Bradley from Anchorage down on April 4th. She will be doing a three-hour lecture on picking fabric and color for quilt projects. Diana was the owner of Quilt Zone in Anchorage. This is a free class to all our membership and will be from 1:00 to 4:00 PM after our General Membership meeting. I hope you all will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

The class will be Chic Sisters using the Quick Curve Ruler on day one and on day two she will be teaching Scalloped Borders for those who want to learn this technique. I have looked at some of the other quilts made with this ruler and I am looking forward to learning this new technic.
