Join me on a tour of my quilting journey as I share over 75 examples spanning 30 plus years. Just how did I get here? From the start in 1986, we will follow my path through traditional quilting to art quilting, and my love of hand dyeing and surface design techniques that leads to where I am today.

Kevin will be selling hand-dyed scarves, t-shirts and fabrics before and after the program.
