YOU BOUGHT THAT WHERE?!?

A fun and information lecture!  Let Karen take you around her little town, searching for the best quilting supplies found in some unexpected places.  It's amazing what you can find at the local "feed" store!  As a bonus, Karen will take you into her studio to show you how she uses many of her finds.
