"Embracing the Imperfections"
A Cocktail Party Trunk Show with Angela Walters
Saturday, April 13, 2019 ~ 6pm to 9pm
Barrister Winery in Downtown Spokane

The secret to great quilting isn’t necessarily knowing how to quilt a perfect design, it’s knowing how to hide your mistakes! In this funny and encouraging trunk show, I will share my secrets for hiding or highlighting elements of your quilting. Whether it’s drawing attention from piecing that’s more “organic” than precise, or showing off that design that you finally nailed, you will leave excited to finish the quilt tops that you may have in your UFO pile or laying around the house.
Join us for a night out on the town!

Come enjoy a cocktail party with hors d'oeuvres, a trunk show and a lecture Angela wrote just for you! In addition to the gorgeous historic setting in an award-winning winery, we have several surprises in store for you! This will truly be a uniquely fun night of inspiration and community for machine quilters of all types and skill levels!
