The Northeast Iowa Quilters’ Guild will next meet at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm in the Community Room of the Luana Savings Bank on Tuesday, April 4. Sisters Carolyn Clark and Dianne Rissman (from the Forest Mills Quilt Shop located between Waukon and Luana, Iowa) will speak about the history of preprinted panels and their evolution to the amazing products we have today. Special events and honors are often commemorated with a quilt. Fabric panels have made this practice much less time-consuming. Carolyn and Dianne will have many samples from the 1970s to the present, and will set up a mini-boutique with panels and patterns for sale. For more information, please contact Mike Ellingsen at 507.602.0322, Nancy Sojka at 563.419.1828, or check out the NEIQG home page (www.neiqg.com) and the NEIQG Facebook page (NorthEast Iowa Quilters’ Guild).
