BPQ October Zoom Meeting and Lecture
Thursday, October 1st at 7pm
Speaker: Brenda Henning
Program Title: "How Did I Get Here?"
This program will be about the life and times of Brenda, the accidental quilter, teacher and author. Sometimes life throws a curve ball. This lecture chronicles Brenda's progression as an accidental quilter.
Brenda Henning is a compulsive quiltmaker with a fondness for traditional design and a desire to incorporate today's speed piecing techniques with yesterday's well-loved patterns. Brenda's sewing machine experience began at the early age of 10 on her grandmother's treadle sewing machine with the first quilt following at age 14. Brenda became a compulsive quilter in the mid-80's, and began teaching quilt making in 1988, when her third child was an infant. Writing and self-publishing that work have been by-products of teaching quilting. Brenda is the author of numerous books and individual patterns available under the label Bear Paw Productions.
Program Title: "Happy Villages and Accidental Landscapes"

We've lined up Karen Eckmeier to speak to us via Zoom. If you're unfamiliar with Karen, here are a few pictures of her work:
