Klaudeen Hansen April Speaker



Klaudeen Hansen will be the speaker at our March meeting. She is also judging our quilts that week.
Klaudeen is listed in WHO’S WHO IN AMERICAN QUILTING and is the editor of QUILT ART ENGAGEMENT CALENDAR which features the work of regional quilters and the ADDRESS & BIRTHDAY BOOK featuring miniature quilts and their stories. Kaludeen’s quilts have been in many invitational shows both in the US and Europe. Her AMISH INFLUENCES exhibit of 12 wall quilts was in Oslo, Norway, during the Olympics. Teaching is Klaudeen’s area of greatest interest. A recent trip to Japan’s International Quilt Expo in Tokyo (1,000 quilts) gave Klaudeen a new focus for her popular exchange quilt classes and lots of new ideas to share. Published works include: “Klaudeen Hansen’s Addresses & Birthdays.”
The meeting is at 7 p.m. at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Springdale.
