"Art to Wear with a Quilter's Flair!"
I LOVE presenting this entertaining trunk show!
You will laugh . . . A LOT! The trunk show includes a large selection of clothing and covers my work from 1970 to date.
Listen and learn as Suzanne discusses and displays a large variety of embellishments. You’ll leave with lots of ideas for adding panache to your garments and quilts!
