Kelly DuMaresq joined us for our April meeting. She did a wonderful presentation of her "scrappy works" and she answered all the questions that quilters are asked. It was most entertaining and informative. (Just remember, "No." can be the answer and it is a full sentence.)



Our member Show and Share was inspiring as well.
