Linda Hubbard will visit our guild and offer a Miniature workshop on Saturday 26 April. Linda is an inspiring teacher and this will be a great learning experience. She will cover many techniques which can often be applied to full size quilts. Cost for the workshop is $35 and the fee is due at our March meeting.

On Friday 25 April, Linda will give a trunk show (starting at 7 pm) and we are combining this with a dessert party. Cost is $6 for members and tickets will be available at our March meeting.
