March Program - Linda Rasmussen
Linda Rasmussen has had a lifelong love of sewing and needlework of all kinds. She started making clothing in middle school and attended Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, where she received a Bachelor's of Science in Home Economics. After moving to Southern California in the 1970's, she began quilting and was hooked. Since that time, she has taught classes locally in many methods and techniques related to quilting. In 2001 she began to judge quilt shows and has taken both the NQA Short Course on Judging and the Northern California Council of Quilt Guilds Judging Course.

Parliamentarian:We are still in need of someone to serve as Parliamentarian. If anyone would agree to serve in this position, please contact one of the current Board Members. 
    In her spare time, Linda takes classes from many nationally known quilters to expand her base of knowledge of quilt making of all sorts. Traveling to quilt shows across the nation is also one of Linda's passions. She loves to see what is new and exciting in the world of quilting.
    Linda is an award winning quilter who has exhibited at Road to California in Ontario, California, and at the AQS Show in Paducah, Kentucky. Most of her work is traditionally-based, but she continues to explore her artistic side with new and experimental techniques.
    Linda will teach a workshop on Quilt Show Quality Bindings. You may bring your own quilt to be bound while she teaches the technique. If you don’t have a quilt ready to be bound, you can purchase a place mat kit from her to learn the technique.
    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 to about 3:00 pm on March 10th.
    Meet the Teacher with Linda Rasmussen will be at Cali Café at 44140 20th St. West, Lancaster, at 5:00 pm prior to the general meeting on March 8th. We hope to see you there!
