Lisa will bring a quilt trunk show plus all the newest tools of our trade including the many rulers that make quilting easier and even more enjoyable.
If you have a few quilters among your antecedents, listen to this: Our August speaker comes from a 125-year family tradition of quilting which has most of us beaten in years. Lisa is an award-winning quilter and has made hundreds of quilts over the last 25 years.
Lisa loves bringing EVERYONE into her quilting world. When her son’s Boy Scout troop needed a service project she taught them all to quilt! The troop made 10 quilts for the wounded warriors returning home.
In her past life, Lisa taught about computers and networking. When she began working at a quilt shop in 2010, she thought that teaching people to quilt was a natural progression in her career! Besides, doesn’t EVERYONE go from teaching about computers to teaching quilting? She soon realized that it's much more fun teaching quilting. However, she feels as though computers are a little less dangerous.
You will find Lisa working part time at a quilt shop in Sonoma, California where she teaches, is a buyer of fabric, notions, and quilting supplies. She regularly attends Quilt Market to find the latest and greatest quilting notions and tools.

Message from Jenny: If you have some free motion experience and want to learn more free motion fills, then join me and learn how to select and quilt fills and frills. Together, we’ll build on the skills that you already have and learn a variety of fills and frilly motifs to add to your projects. Most motifs will be free hand; a few will use marked reference points. Let’s play!
