Remembering Doreen Speckmann

Saturday • March 7th

We’re combining three events for a whole day of celebrating and honoring Doreen Speckmann (the featured artist in our current exhibit) and her quilting legacy.

Guided Gallery Walk • 10:30am • $10 admission at the door

Notable quilters Marianne Fons and Judy Martin will lead a guided gallery walk through our current exhibit of Doreen’s quilts. As friends and colleagues of Doreen’s, Marianne & Judy will have fun stories and memories to share while they walk us through the exhibit.

Meet Peaky & Spike Class • 12:30 – 4:30pm • $25

Accomplished quilter and teacher, Joyce Franklin will lead this class where quilters of all levels can meet and create with Peaky & Spike. Using these basic triangle units, participants will create a simple table topper that can be finished in the class. The project will require three Fat Quarters, which are included with the cost of the class.

• Sewing Machine with neutral thread
• Rotary mat and cutter
