During the engaging and interactive program, Shannon will share about herself, her background, how she began quilting, and what led her to develop her techniques and write Scrappy Bits Appliqué. She will take everyone through the whole process (nitty-gritty details will be saved for workshops) and provide a lot of ideas and inspiration for how these techniques can be used. Lastly, a trunk show, where we hold up the different quilts she brought, and discuss fabric selection, quilting decisions, etc. It is a really fun and unique program.
