Workshop Information

Alex Anderson of Simply Quilts and The Quilt Show will be our speaker. She will be giving us a trunk show of her spectacular quilts and speaking about how her quilting has changed throughout her quilting career. Having Alex speak at CQC’s 39th birthday meeting is a special honor as Alex does not attend many speaking engagements. On Sunday July 23, Alex will be giving two mini lectures at Holly’s Quilt Cabin. The morning lecture is a hands-on lecture; “So I’ve finished my quilt top, now what do I do?”. This is your chance to bring your quilt tops and get advice on what your options might be for quilting it. The afternoon mini lecture is “Scraps, Scraps so many Scraps”. This mini lecture is an opportunity to bring your scraps and get advice, plus our chance to play in your scrap pile. Alex was chosen as the 2008 Silver Star Award winner. This honor is given annually by the International Quilt Festival to a quilter “whose work and influence has made— and continues to make—a sizable and positive impact on the quilting industry and community.”
