Teacher Cynthia Corbin

Another teacher we are pleased to have is Cynthia Corbin. She will teach a class titled STRUCTURE AND VARIATION and do a lecture also.

On her website Cynthia says, "I remember my grandmother’s quilts. They were not lovely, but pure utilitarian weigh you down and keep you warm coverings. With a collection of fabrics salvaged from years of clothing, those quilts reflected an ethic that I find recurring in my own experience-- accept what you are given and work with what you have. My grandmother’s quilts told stories and evoked feelings, connecting me to a family’s history. That connection has influenced a need to express something unique to myself and my time."

Teacher Charlotte Angotti

Hi y'all

How are you today? Are you working on any interesting projects right now? I get lots of sewing done this time of year because when the temperature is hot, I stay inside where it's cool!

We now have many of the teachers confirmed for 2010 symposium so I can tell you who they are.

The first one is Charlotte Angotti, a teacher from SC.

She will teach a class called LET ME SUPRISE YOU and also do a lecture

Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you who else we've got coming.

Happy Quilting, Rhondi
