Programs:

Michelle Kitto (UrbanSpools)- The Modern Quilt Movement

Our speaker for this month is Michelle Kitto, owner of Urban Spools Sewing Lounge and life long sewist. Her mission at Urban Spools is to help others discover their creative passion. She believes everyone has a creative side and when we nurture that part of ourselves our whole life is richer for it.

Michelle will talk about the modern Quilt Movement.  She will discuss the features of a “modern Quilt” and how they are different and similar to the quilts we have been making for centuries. Michelle’s lecture will include personal stories of her quilting journey from Civil War reproduction quilts to modern improv quilts. Her trunk show will have many examples of modern quilting.
Community Service Items for February meeting:

Thank you for what you continue to do for our community.
