June 9, 2016 Meeting:
Larene Smith, of The Quilted Button, says she can remember when she was very young watching her mom sewing and hearing the words “Do not touch my sewing machine.” That began her interest in sewing. Years later she asked her mom to show her how to make a quilt. Her mom took the time to teach Larene how to make a 9 patch quilt. Larene took fabric that she bought - too many years ago to count - from T, G & Y and began playing with fabric.
Larene has developed into a talented quilt designer/maker/teacher. Her designs are unique and she has taught many classes for quilt shops and guilds. She also regularly designs for several fabric manufacturers including Hoffman California International Fabrics, P & B Textiles, Quilting Treasures, and Windham Fabrics. She will share unique techniques to help you “Sew the Pieces” in a way you have not seen before.
