BPQ Program Thursday May 2
"Finding Your Passion and Running With It"
Jean writes, "The spider web design made a huge impression on me back in 2007. I started making one and then found I couldn't make them fast enough to keep up with all the ideas that originated from this one design. I love sharing my spider webs with others, showing them how one thing led to another and when you find something that clicks, I think you need to keep at it, maybe you call it a series?"
Jean brings a small trunk show to show along with her Spider Web Series visual demonstration to demonstrate how "Passion" can take over and lead you on an amzing path. Included is a tutorial so quilters will actually learn something while listening to her lecture on how passion can be worked with to make you more creative.
