From Nora Krein, our program chairwoman.
Lecture with Wendy Butler-Berns Thursday, September 26, entitled “I’ve Been Bitten by the Bug – The Quilting Bug that is!” What does an entomologist for a father and a gardener for a mother have to do with the kind of quilts one creates? Join in this lighthearted quilt tour and trunk show of Wendy’s work as well as others. (Location – St Thomas Episcopal Church, 2898 South 48th Street, Springdale AR) Meeting time is 7:00 PM; however, you may want to come and shop with the featured vendor.

Wendy Butler-Berns is a published, award winning quilt artist who found her passion for quilting in 1993. Since 1997, she has taught and lectured about the art of quilting at conferences, guild and retreats across the country. Her work appears regularly in juried shows and galleries as well as in private collections nationally and internationally. Wendy’s original art quilts are noted for their bold use of color, unusual fabrics and a combination of unconventional techniques.
Wendy Butler-Berns is teaching at Houston later this fall – that class cost is a lot more than what our guild is charging. Help me fill this class!
