Upcoming Speakers for the General Meetings
November 15th – Gail Sheppard
Gail is a prolific quilter. She is involved in providing mystery quilts to guild members (and sometimes on her blog). Scraps are a favourite of hers! She used to be known for dumpster diving and searching garbage cans at guild sewing days for scraps. Many of the scraps turn into quilts that are donated to various charities. Gail is in her 4th year as an Island Batik Ambassador. Island Batik sends her LOTS of fabrics and supplies and in return, she makes a quilt or project each month and posts them on her blog ( https://quiltinggail.com/) Gail also designs patterns for new Island Batik fabric collections and has been published in Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine. Gail is looking forward to sharing her latest quilts and talking about her quilting journey.
