2010 Events Photo Gallery

It was a festive day full of seasonal cheer.  Our new Demo Central was a hit with Jill giving detailed demonstrations of the latest Quick Trim ruler.  Thanks to all of you who donated food for the Sedona Community Food Bank.   We each do make a difference.

Shopping for Buttons at Walmart III
We were pleased to present the award-winning art quilts of Karen Fisher.  Her artwork has been shown in Paducah, Houston and Denver, to name a few places.  Karen adds her magical touch to a structured quilt with embellishments and layers of interest in her composition.  All are colorful, and her titles add insight to the essence of the quilt.

July 1 through July 31, 2010

The inspiring fiber artwork of Mary Fisher was presented.
Artist * Author * Former UNAIDS Special Representative * International Public Speaker * AIDS Activist
Mary's African-inspired quilts with essays will move your heart.  The faces are real and will draw you in as Mary tells a story of suffering and hope with each image.
"She's an Orphan"
Mary writes of this quilt, "We think of them as distant and dirty, if we think of them at all.  In fact, they are like our own children when we call them in from play.  What's different is that we protect our children from all things harmful; she and her fellow orphans are safe from nothing that will prey on them:  hatred, hunger, disease, rape, greed.  An orphan does not lack simply parents:  she lacks everything needed to live."
