The March meeting featured Julie Keeter, a retired florist from Throckmorton. After trying different craft hobbies that just didn't work for her, she tried quilting and found her passion. Julie's new love lead to her purchasing a long-arm quilting machine and then on to designing her own patterns for aprons and jackets. She also teaches classes on her versatile jackets that can be adjusted to different sizes and styles. Visitors are welcome to visit her home studio where her patterns and fabric can be purchased. Members were able to shop and enjoy many of Julie's examples of her work. A number of her beautiful quilts are shown below.

The Brownwood Quilt Show is scheduled for April 24-25 and members will be asked to sign up at next month's meeting for various duties. A "stash" sale will be held again at the show where members can bring their items to be sold. This is a good time to clean out the stash and everyone can find some treasures to take home.

Tickets are still on sale for the beautiful donation quilt and may be purchased from any member or at the show. The drawing will be held at the end of the day on Sunday, April 25, at the show.
