We are going to have a great year (2012) with a wonderful line up of speakers and workshops. Don't miss this opportunity to be taught by national leaders in the quilt industry.
We are very fortune to have as our guest in January, Christine Barnes. Ms Barnes has published two books about quilting and color. Her latest is ―The Quilter’s Color Club‖. She has taught at Empty Spools at Asilamor as well as worked with Sunset Magazine. She is a very sought after teacher and lecturer.
Her lecture will be Color, Color, Color and her workshop is Color Camp. The workshop will provide each of you with an opportunity to learn about the different elements of color and how to use mock blocks to discover how the different elements work in making a quilt pop.
The class will be held at Quilters Quarters (Hanford, CA) on Saturday, January 7th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. The cost is $40, which is a bargain for this class. Please contact Charlotte Meade if you want to sign up for the class. You can check out her web site at: christinebarnes.com

Also start thinking about our boutique next year - what can you make and donate or better yet, what can you do to help. Check out the committee page for more ideas.
Sorry - no pictures were taken at the December meeting so no new show and tell pictures.
