Lee will briefly describe her life and show slides of her work and that of some of the quilters who’ve been influenced by her.  Lee will also share her own beautiful Anna Williams quilt and tell its story.

  1. WIll we also discuss ExCom thoughts about community service projects?

    Also, I have an idea for a really easy fundraiser I’d like to throw on the table.

  2. Hi Julie-
    I’m sure we’ll have time for a discussion of community service and fund raisers.
    See you Sunday – Lynne
