This month we will be having Becky Goldsmith from Piece o Cake Designs.
She is always a delight to hear. She will be talking about color. She is such a
down-to-earth person, who always has tips for quilters of every experience
level. She is one of my favorite speakers.
Meeting to begin at 7:00, speaker around 7:20. Be sure to arrive on time. If you
have quilts for show and tell, get pictures to Lynn Slosson by 5:00 PM on
November 7 so she can load them into her computer.
Becky Goldsmith is an award-winning quilter who travels to teach quilting both nationally and internationally. Her classes are always interesting and informative, with an emphasis on teaching techniques that help you improve your sewing skills without making you crazy.
Becky met Linda Jenkins, her partner in Piece O’ Cake Designs, at a meeting of the Green Country Quilters’ Guild in Tulsa, OK, in 1986. They started Piece O’ Cake in 1994 and, since then, have published more than 30 books and hundreds of patterns, including 7 Blocks of the Month. Linda is mostly retired now while Becky continues writing books and patterns.
Becky says that, for all of us, making quilts is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging—and that being a member of the quilting community is an added bonus. She never imagined that being a quilter would become her life’s work, but she’s so happy that it did!
