VMQG October Meeting – Trunk Show by Kathleen Riggins , Canadian Longarm Quilter

Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is excited to announce that we will be hosting Kathleen Riggins, an extraordinary Canadian modern longarm quilter, for a trunk show at our October meeting, Monday, October 17, 2016 at 7pm.


Kathleen is from Camrose, Alberta and has been sewing and quilting all of her life.  She has been free-motion quilting for over a decade and long-arm quilting for several years.  A few of us had the pleasure of attending several classes with her at Quiltcon and have seen her fantastic work first hand.  

Kathleen often teaches at Sparrow Studios in Edmonton and has just returned from teaching in Australia at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival and several other locations.  She will also be teaching longarm quilting at Quiltcon East in Savannah, Georgia in February 2017.  Luckily we get to see her first!!

If you do not know her work, you can check it out on her blog at https://kathleenquilts.com/.  She is also on Instagram @kathleenquilts and is on Facebook as well.
