Join us for Tammy's Talk
"Every Quilt has a Story"
In a fun, interactive session, Tammy Reid will share stories and talk with panelists
and the attendees about her collection. This is not a lesson about how to make a quilt.
Tammy is passionate about her quilt collection, not a serious quilter.
The original date was canceled due to conflicts.

Then: Tammy, Dakota and Christine, in an informal conversation, the three will chat about Tammy's quilts, more collecting stories and the characteristics used by Christine to determine the age range of Tammy's quilts. Audience participation in the conversation is welcomed.
