May 9th -- Ann P. Shaw
"Life and the Art of Making Quilts


                                  Image result for ann p shaw       


     Ann P. Shaw is a certified Ruth McDowell instructor and began her quilting adventure in the 1980's with a cathedral windows quilt. She counts the late Gwen Marston, Freddy Moran, Katie Pasquini Masopust, and of course, Ruth McDowell among those who have inspired her quilting journey. 

     This lecture presents an overview of Ann's initial interests in quilts, how her work has evolved and the varied influences expressed in her quilts.  She will discuss her focus on stretching the boundaries of traditional piecing through asymmetrical designs and unusual fabric choices.  Ann is happy to answer questions from the audience during her presentation.

The items needed are: cosmetic bags (colorful), essential oils (the roll on the wrist kind) calming ones like lavender, small bottles of hand lotion, different kinds of fidgets (like the small cubes that have different push things on them, pencils that have fidgets on them, there are lots of soft, squishy ones balls and all kinds of shapes, different kinds of metal links to push and pull on) you get the idea. No spinners.
