January 2013: Ami Simms Lecture

On Wednesday, January 30th  Ami Simms will be hanging out with the Evening Star Quilters

Davison-Richfield Senior Center

10135 Lapeer Road, Davison, Michigan

The meeting starts at 6:30 PM, with doors opening at 6:00 PM.  Visitors/guests are welcome to attend the meeting and Ami’s lecture, called “Living With Quilts:  A Survival Guide.” A guest fee of $5 goes towards the cost of the speaker, and we look forward to having you join us!  For questions, contact Caron Mosey, Guild President.

Living With Quilts: A Survival Guide:

Learn creative coping strategies for quilters, but not necessarily for their families. Topics include how to pad your house (quilt display and storage), appropriate more studio space (why stop with the spare bedroom?), eliminate pesky distractions (cooking and cleaning), increase storage capacity (batting goes in the oven), and the best way to deal with the guilt of UFOs (ignore it)!
