ridgeWe hope you can join us for our April meeting . Doors open at 6:30PM. Meeting starts at 7:00PM. Alice Ridge will present a trunk show titled Quilt Trip Around the World. Meeting will be at the Lake Villa Library  because of the election.

Description of the presentation from Alice:
I am an Military Wife, and my husband and I have traveled all over the world. My trunk show presentation is an exploration of the different styles of quilting and needlework that I have encountered in my travels. Some of the pieces are authentic to an area, some are my personal interpretation of a place or style, but, all of them are colorful and unique! I hope that you enjoy my presentation, and afterward, I hope that you ask yourself not “what” you will quilt today, but “Where” !

Alice has been quilting for over 30 years. She loves all types of quilting, from traditional handwork to modern and art quilts. She will talk and walk us through her exploration of different types of quilting some of which are Japanese Shashiko, Korean Pojagi, Celtic Knotwork, and English Paper Piecing. She has been teaching classes for a number of years while being an Army wife. Her husband just recently retired and they moved into their first “real” house.
