Extravaganza 2012: This Saturday!

Guest Judy Ross' show and tell 2010

Every year we host an event that we call an Extravaganza.  It started several years ago when we were really tired of the winter, meetings having to be postponed because of bad driving conditions, and just plain dreary weather.  Those conditions were not present this year with our very mild winter...but...traditions should not be abandoned willy-nilly, you know :^)

Saturday is the day.  Okay, it's St. Pat's day.  But it's also International Quilting Day.  We will celebrate both.  No green beer (that I know about)...instead we are all making nine patch blocks with green centers for a Disappearing Nine Patch quilt that we will make for one of our favorite local charities.

I'm including photos that I took last year and the year before....all of those pictured will be in attendance again this year.  I am so looking forward to our Show and Tell!

This year's speaker is Jane Davila, who is going to talk about working with found objects!  We will have such a wonderful day.

More pics next week!!
