Our program for March is a Trunk Show of Crazy Quilts with Sandy Coffee. Sandy's passion is fiber art, especially quilting and she has been sewing since her childhood. She discovered quilting when she lived in Alaska and her love for quilting led her to her dream shop at a Texas quilt shop. Sandy is a long arm quilter and has been featured in several quilting magazines in conjunction with "Stitchin' Heaven" where she works part time. She is a certified Judy Neimeyer instructor and enjoys teaching paper piecing techniques.
The next LOLQG Board meeting is March 7th at the Lewisville Public Library at 6:30. Everyone is welcome to come!
