This is Deb Karasik. She will be here next month.
Deb started her real quilting passion in November of 2000, when she got a call from one of her daughters, advising Deb, (the daughter…not Deb!) 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.
Here are some samples of her work:
Award winning quilter Marion Voorhees will be with us on February 26. She will be bringing her trunk show of modern and art quilts. Her artistic flare really shines in her quilts, as well as the many group quilts she works on with other members of the Charlotte Quilt Guild.
You won’t want to miss this one!
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 22. We will be having our annual business meeting — but don’t worry, we still have plenty of fun. So come on down and see what we have going for 2019 — some great speakers and workshops are in our future. The Program starts at 7 p.m. with the “Show and Tell” and business portion of the meeting follows.
Lake Norman Quilters meets at 7 p.m. at Centre Presbyterian Church in Mooresville, near I-77 Exit 33.
The program this month is Beth Dix from Black Mountain. She will also be doing a workshop on Wednesday on Redwork Embroidery. She said that the workshop would last about two and a half to three hours. We will meet starting at 9, planning on starting the workshop at 9:30. Class fee is $25 and kits will be $25. Plus you need scissors, thimble, additional lighting and embroidery hoop.
The Lake Norman Guild Annual Summer Picnic will be Tuesday, July 24th, at our regular time of 7:00 pm. Come a little early if you can because I’m sure everyone will want to start eating as soon as possible.
Bring your favorite culinary delight to share with the group, plus your recipe to share. Plates, plasticware, napkins and cups will be provided.
If you have picked up a favorite or useful tip, we will have a sharing time.
Please give copies of your recipe to Colleen Thrailkill. She will pass them to Snow for inclusion in the August newsletter. You may also email them to Snow at email@example.com.
The May program is by Evelyn Judson, a Certified Quilt Judge. She will present a trunk show at the meeting, and a Perfect Piecing Workshop on Wednesday. The workshop is appropriate for beginners and advanced quilters. The class fee is $25, and the workshop kit fee is $5.

On July 29th (Saturday) we will be having our scrap quilt workshop. The design we voted on was Trail Mix. Here is the link to the pattern:
Download the pattern, print it out and get your fabric baggies labeled and put some scraps laying around your sewing area in them. Seriously, this quilt is a great way to clean up that ever rising stash of small scraps that you just hate to part with.
