Area quilter and quilt designer Jackie Padesky, who gained Instagram fame with her Pineapple quilt, will give us a trunk show of her many projects, including the one that made her famous. With two small boys, most of her quilts are completed between the hours of 9 p.m. and midnight, so be prepared to be wowed!


There will be a quilt fabric stash sale at the November meeting. Bring your wallets and checkbooks!
