FAT QUARTER OF THE MONTH RAFFLE

Bring 1 to 5 fat quarters in the color specified (below) to our monthly guild meeting. Identify each of your fat quarters by writing your name on one of the self-sticking labels that will be at the Welcome table each month. Attach your label(s) to each of your fat quarters and drop it in the “Fat Quarter Raffle ” basket.” At some point during our meeting we will draw a fat quarter and that person will win ALL of the fat quarters. The more you bring the greater your chances are to win but you are only required to bring one fat to participate.

May Program — Deb Karasik and Perfect Paper Piecing

Tuesday, May-28-2019

Deb started her real quilting passion in November of 2000, when she got a call from one of her daughters, saying she was pregnant with triplets. She picked up the quilting bug with a passion and joined her local quilt guild (the San Francisco Quilters Guild).

It was at the SFQG that she met Janet Mednick, who would later help her write a book for the American Quilters Society, called ‘QuiltMavens Perfect Paper Piecing’.

She has since written ‘Quilts With Attitude’, also published by AQS, and is currently working on her next book.

Now based in Durham, North Carolina, Deb is quilting, teaching and writing professionally, and her travels take her worldwide to share her passion for contemporary quilting, meeting new people, and sharing her knowledge with quilters everywhere.
