From Quilts to Twilts, Anything Goes

Our guest speaker for September is Shelly Swanland.Shelly has sewn since she was a young girl and transitioned to quilting in the mid 70's.In 1989 she joined SLO Quilters in San Lois Obispo and started getting serious about it.In 1998 she developed a technique for constructing Cathedral Window quilts based on three-dimensional piecing techniques and wrote her first book about it called "Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows", followed by a 2nd book "Machine Stitched Cathedral Stars".

Shelly has been on the show Simply Quilts, and her work has been in"McCall's Quilting", "The Quilter", "Quilters World", and "Quiltmakers Magazine".She also works with embellishment, which will be her workshop for us, and does embroidery, Wearable Art and Art Quilts.We are really looking forward to her workshop and presentation.
