Presentations to the Fidalgo Island Quilters
Every once in a while I have an opportunity to make a presentation to an arts or textile group. I was invited to speak and show slides to the Fidalgo Island Quilters Guild last month about the courses we hold at our center in La Conner, Washington. The Fidalgo Island Quilters are a large group of active people who meet once a month at the United Church in Anacortes. There is a group that meet in the morning and another that meets in the evening. I talked to both groups. It was such an inspiration to speak in a beautiful environment surrounded by stained glass windows and beautiful architecture and to be met with enthusiasm. Brightly colored quilts in red, white and blue were draped over the church pews. Just a few of the many quilts made especially for veterans by the Guild every year.
This month three of our students: Christina Erickson, Nancy Drake and Dianne Corso were also invited by the quilters to show some of their art and textile work that was created from the courses at our center in La Conner, Washington. Each one presented their artwork to much acclaim from the audience. Here are a few photos.
