January 9th meeting.  Our Speaker for January will be Carol Hancuh.  Many of you may recognize her as the Eagle Creek Quilt Shop cook from their Breakfast Club.

Carol started her career in art with acrylics, pen and ink, and watercolors. A cousin introduced her to quilting in 2011 and she has been busy ever since.  Carol’s quilting journey has been an interesting one. Her first quilt was king-sized and made of 3” squares. This might have been boring to a traditional quilter, but Carol was caught up in the colors of fabric. Having an art background, it was all about the colors! She took a quilting workshop in Tuscany, Italy, taught by Esterita Austin. This introduced her to the art of fusing. It opened up a whole new dimension in quilting for her.  One of her favorite projects has been a quilt called “Feed My People”, aimed at raising awareness of hunger within the United States.  Join us as Carol shares her quilting journey.

January is also the club's organizational meeting. Our 2018 program chairs will announce the themes and speakers for our upcoming 2018 meetings.  We will hear about the comfort quilts planned for this year, as well as register for resolution quilts and pick secret pals. 

In addition, the raffle quilt for the 2018 quilt show will be revealed at the January meeting.  The quilt designers will take us through the process and steps needed to create, design and execute this amazing quilt.
