October Program
Heidi Stagno - Modern Style Quilting
By popular demand Heidi Stagno is back and will present the October lecture “Modern Style Quilting.” Heidi presented a delightfully informative and funny lecture in February 2016. Heidi and her husband John and twin daughters live in Yucaipa, CA. The beautiful city of Yucaipa feels just like the small town of Pocatello, ID, where Heidi grew up. Her grandmother Leota taught her to tie quilts. This was more of a utilitarian style of quilting, but this started her fascination with fabric, design and texture. Heidi has been professionally long arm quilting for 16 years. She has quilted over 3000 quilts and counting. She has won many awards for her quilting and loves teaching others her techniques. Heidi has appeared on "Quilt It," the long arm quilting show on QNN TV. She has won the Handi-Quilter Way Award for the last three years consecutively. She is also a member of the Handi-Quilter Retail Advisory Committee. When she's not quilting, she is going on field trips and volunteers at the twins' school. Heidi enjoys baking, camping and spending time with her family. To make more time for quilting, Heidi is a master meal planner.

Saturday’s class is titled “Fantastic Feathers.” In this workshop you will learn how to angle and shape the plume. You will also learn how to maneuver the plumes through, inside and outside corners. Heidi has developed a technique that is easy to follow and easy to remember. Heidi will show you how to use common and familiar items to help you keep your feathers looking FANTASTIC. This class will definitely fill completely. Please assure your place in the class by contacting Carolyn Lundie or Kathy Greene early. The workshop will be held at Trinity Community Church, 45361 N. Trevor, Lancaster -- from 9:00 am to ~3:00 pm on October 14.

Meet the Teacher with Heidi Stagno will be at Cali Café (formerly Camille’s) at 44140 20th St. West, Lancaster. See you at 5:00 pm prior to the general meeting on Oct. 12th. We hope to see you there!
