Caprock Circle Report

The Caprock circle met Saturday November 10 during rain, a dust storm and a cool evening.  Isn’t West Texas great – never boring.  We had a wonderful morning workshop working on collage quilts with photos, torn fabric, embroidery bits and pieces, cheesecloth (which we colored with paint), earrings, etc. . No sewing, just quilt it all down.  Everyone shared their bits and pieces and I think we went home with more than we came with.  We also had demos on gold leaf and an edge finish with yarn.  We gained two new members.  Janet Moran drove 3 hours to meet with us!
After lunch, we elected a new Vice President – Sandra Stephenson, and I was reelected as President.  Then we learned about the Life and Quilts of Valerie Hill.  She is having a one woman show soon, and she is in production mode.  Ellie Kreneck, along with her husband Lynnwood, are having a show in Carlsbad, NM next week.

It was a wonderful day of sharing our art and quilting passion.
