Leap and the Net will Appear

Even an internationally recognized quilter, teacher, author, and the first non-American president of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) has her ups and downs. . .  A believer in serendipity, innovation, and experimentation, Lisa Walton takes chances.  Sometimes she’s successful, sometimes. . .  not so much.  Join Quilt North in November when Lisa–all the way from Sydney, Australia–takes us on her quilting adventures.  We’ll be inspired by how her work has developed over the years and the milestones and “leaps” she has taken. Perhaps we’ll even choose to take more creative risks ourselves . . .Clink the link below to register for this lecture.
