July Program
Nadine Kirk: "Reverse Applique Extravaganza"
A quilter since 1991, Nadine was born with a sewing needle in her hand. Her main focus is developing designs that interpret seasonal celebrations, Asian designs, and natural or whimsical elements using
reverse appliqué, piecing, and various embellishments. Nadine has been teaching in the South Bay area for a number of years and participated in the California Quilt Rush teacher medley at Road to California. Her work was juried at Road in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, at Pacific International in 2004, 2005, and 2007, the Hoffman Challenge in 2004, at AQS/Paducah in 2006 and 2008, and the Surf’s Up! Exhibit at IQF/Long Beach in 2008; and her “Halloween Haunts” quilt won awards at Road and Pacific
International in 2007.

The workshop will be on Saturday, July 15, 2017, from 9:00 am to ~3:00 pm. We have a brand new location for our workshops! It is the Trinity Community Church at 45361 N. Trevor, Lancaster. It is north of Ave I, just past PetroLock. The location will be announced at the guild meeting. Supply sheets will be available at the guild meeting, or email Kathy Greene for a digital version. We still have room in the workshop. Please give Kathy Greene a call or send her an email to add your name.
