Our Quilt Store Opening
Mahnaz sent pictures of the opening of their quilt shop and classroom.  Nine ladies worked hard to fill the space with their beautiful quilts.  This space was offered up by the local government in Mahnaz's neighborhood.

Mahnaz Nikookar our quilting sister and member from Tehran, Iran conducted a fabric collage workshop on Saturday, May 18, 2013.  She brought some special laces and trims for the participants to use.  These are pictures of her with the participants.

Mahnaz, Darleen, and grandson Andrew Troyer. 
Darleen made hers for her daughter's (Shirley) birthday, with the help of her grandson, and sent it back to North Carolina with him on Tuesday. She loved it! It had bits of lace and fabric from her wedding dress. 
Mary came and worked on baby booties, but got fascinated and helped Murine with hers.

Finished sans the quilting...

"It was great fun. Mahnaz is an excellent teacher.  She let us do our own thing with gentle persuasion to look outside of the box! 
I hope everyone else will have theirs for show and tell at the June meeting.
I'm quilting mine now."  - Marian 


May 2013 Show and Tell

We had a special guest from Iran, Mahnaz.  We showed her some of our new and older quilts and she shared with us by teaching a class on collage.
