Walk on the Wool Side, A Vickie Clontz lecture
Powerpoint program/lecture with a concentration on how to use wool in quilting and sewing projects, from traditional blanket-stitched applique to needle-felted art quilts. I also bring samples to correspond with the slide show, which serves to inspire attendees to try their hand at using wool in their creative designs. I have patterns, kits, and woolfelt for many of the projects I can bring. I can also bring models from some of the numerous designs I've done for magazines.

Bonnie Hunter lecture with a trunk show of approx 100 quilts. Bonnie K Hunter is passionate about quilt quilting, focusing mainly on scrap quilts with the simple feeling of “making do”.  She started her love affair with quilting in a home economics class her senior year of high school in 1980 and has never looked back. 

When not traveling and teaching, she spends her time piecing scrap quilts, enjoying the peaceful reward of English paper piecing and  hand quilting as much as machine work, and loving life in her wooded surroundings in beautiful rural Wallburg, North Carolina, A suburb of Winston-Salem.
