April Trunk Show with Susan Purney Mark

This is one Trunk Show our members have been very excited about since it was announced months ago.  Susan Purney Mark is a well known author, teacher and fabric artist.  We were all thrilled to hear her talk about her life and how she has gone from a student to a teacher, from a traditional quilter to a fabric artist.
Below are a few of the items she showed us in her trunk show. It was a very interesting night, and it included the opportunity to purchase some hand dyed fabrics, books by Susan and beautiful hand dyed embroidery threads.

A beautiful use of hand dyed fabric.

This was a spectacular night!  Meeting Susan Purney Mark was a great thrill and hearing her speak about her quilting life was amazing.  We have been fortunate for this opportunity to meet a professional and see her work.
