Annette Morgan (UK) was the guest speaker after lunch, so attendees got to hear all about Annette's work and inspiration. Keep an eye out at next year's Festival of Quilts, Annette will have her own solo exhibit at this show.

Gillian Sheehan (Mid-West Branch) was the winner of the AGM Challenge.

Sunday's workshop was Textured Dimensions with Annette Morgan. Members got to try out direct dyeing using the microwave - it only take 4 mins to set your fabric! The balcony of the hotel room was filled with dyed material drying in the wind...
