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.
