Joy-Lily lecture and trunk show
Monday, June 13th, 2016 

Joy-Lily is a silk painter, fabric dyer, fabric printer and quilt maker. She is inspired by the natural world: shells, flowers, and leaves offer endless choices of colors and forms to celebrate. She believes we are all born artists and that some of us may have had our creativity stifled at an early age. Joy-Lily will share her quilts and quilt journey with us in her lecture at our June meeting.
