Awards Banquet

We hope you will join us for this fun event. A slide show of the award winning quilts will play. We will be honoring our special guests, including the 2017 Quilter of the Year and our Scholarship winner. There will be wonderful door prizes!

Our Speaker Becky Goldsmith will entertain us with her presentation "Is Quilting Really a Piece O'Cake?". Becky describes her creative process, patterns, innovative techniques, and working collaboratively with her partner (she is half of the Piece O'Cake team). Along the way she will share anecdotes about her quilting journey and reveal methods every quilter should know. You are sure to find yourself saying – "Why, that sounds like a Piece O'Cake!"
