April Presentation
Elizabeth Hartman presents:
Social Quilting: All About Bees, Round Robins, and Quilt-Alongs

If you read blogs or correspond with other quilters online, you've probably heard of at least one of these. But what are they, and how can you get involved? Elizabeth will discuss the basics of different kinds of bees, round robins, and quilt-alongs and show examples of the kinds of projects they can produce. If you've ever wondered how you can join a social quilting project, or if you just want to see some of the quilts that come out of them, this presentation is for you!
