Our next Guild workshop, called PLAIDVILLE HOUSES with stimulating instructor Mary Lou Weidman, is scheduled at the Sally Griffin Center in Pacific Grove on June 30 & July 1.
Mary Lou loves to show quilters how to stray from the norm and how to have passion that overrides criticism. For her, it's about the journey and seeing what she can do next.
In addition to quilting for most of her life, Mary Lou has written 5 books, owns a pattern company, has designed fabric for 14 years, represents Bernina, and has taught all across the U.S., Canada, and in eight countries.
