Monday, November 16th Meeting Reminder

PROGRAM: For November’s Program we are happy to have Rose Parr with us.

Making it her mission to work at staying pain free while continuing to sew for as long as possible, Rose combines her studies in home economics with her many certifications to teach others how to sew smart.

During our lecture Rose will share her expertise on how to sew smarter, healthier, and happier. Quilting shouldn’t be a pain in the neck! This presentation will make sure you have the right posture, techniques, and stretches when putting in those dedicated hours on your next project. General questions are welcomed at the end of the lecture. Rose also asks that participants not suggest alternative stretches or discuss their personal physical activity while Rose is on the call. However, specific questions can be emailed to Rose within 30 days of her presentation.

Rose has been sewing for 40 years, quilting for 30, and personal training for more than 15. She holds certifications in:
• Ergonomics
• Holistic Nutrition
• Arthritis Pain Management
• Home Economics

Rose enjoys speaking to quilt guilds both virtually and in-person. She is a professional longarm quilter and a regular contributor to Canadian Quilter Magazine. Her book “Sew Healthy & Happy, Smart Ergonomics, Stretches & More for Makers” is now available to pre-order from Amazon.

Rose will be joining us from Guelph, Ontario, Canada where she lives with her husband David. Their claim to fame is having run an illegal daycare operation when they had four children under the age of four. Now that’s efficient.
