March 2024 General Meeting:  Dawna Sanders – Quilt as Desired. Thursday, March 21, 2024, 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Boulder Valley Christian Church

Join us as we welcome Dawna Sanders, owner of The Quilt Store in Broomfield, Colorado.  Dawna is a quilter and pattern designer. In
addition to that, she designs beautiful pantographs and digital quilting designs for longarm quilters.  After all the work that goes into making your beautiful quilt top, the next big decision is the quilting design. The usual text at the end of a pattern, “Quilt as desired” isn’t much help, but Dawna will walk us through the decision process. She’ll explain what we should consider when choosing a quilt design and give tips for discussing those decisions with your longarm quilter. Since part of her business is longarm quilting, she has expertise and design tips to offer all the long arm quilters as well.

Dawna will bring some of her patterns and other items to sell at the meeting! Quilt fabric, Notions, books, classes (thequiltstore.com)
