    Program:  Welcome to My Neighborhood

     Martha is one of those quilters who is always looking for something               new, a different technique or a quilt that she has never made before.             You will see the different styles and phases she has gone through over           the past 30 years.

     Workshop:  Wonky Dresden Neighborhood

     Diane Rose, theamazingquilter.com

     Program:  Sewing without Sight

     Diane is the only known totally blind quilter.  Vision-impaired with               glaucoma all her life, Diane became blind as a result of an accident in           1984, a mere four days before she was to undergo a cornea transplant.         Not only has that condition not slowed her down, Diane has used it to           serve as a means to motivate others to achieve their true potential.                 "The way I look at it, if I can do what I have done without sight, how             much can you do?" Her quilts hang in the homes of many famous                   people including George Bush and Dolly Parton.


     No Workshop but Friday will be a sew day for silent auction items.
