Workshop: November 10 - Fall Migration (GVQC Members only)
Beth Kelly and Sue Donovan
How did Beth and Sue come together to teach at Fall Migration?
Beth writes, "It’s all quite simple. After an illustrious tenure, Roz Smith decided to retire from teaching Fall Migration. Janet Root, quintessential teacher of all things fabric, tapped Sue Donovan to replace Roz. Project maven and prolific quilter Sue said Of Course!"
After giving the matter further thought, Janet decided retirement from Fall Migration sounded pretty good to her too. Sue decided the two project/teacher format was fun and gave Beth Kelly ‘the look’. (If you’ve spent time around Sue, you know what that is.) Beth, reluctant teacher and slow sewer, succumbed to ‘the look’ and said OK."
Both enjoy quilting, fiber arts, learning new techniques and working together to come up with interesting and fun projects for Fall Migration
