The meeting was called to order with a sparce attendance due to weather - but the die hards were there.

Cyndi McChesney braved it and came from Canon City to share the upcoming events with Colorado Quilt Council and 2 will be occurring in our area. First in June is Maggie Ball - Cyndi had a very nice information board (pictured here) Maggie Balls program is on  Bits and Pieces and   her workshop on Bargello Quilts with a Twist. 

Also a quilt top of one of the options you can do if you sign up for the class (also pictured here)

The 2nd in the area is in July, Rob Appell with a program on Quilts from the Sea and Beyond
 will be in Canon City.

He will be doing a workshop with Quilts of Endangered Species. See some of the quilts here:
Just think you too could be doing these types of quilts....
Take advantage of these the opportunities while they are in our area.
