Fabulous Fish Art Quilt Workshop - Calgary, AB.

I attended such a fun workshop last weekend put on by the Alberta Quilt Study Society.  The class was taught by Margaret Jessop who was the Quilter of Distinction at Calgary's  Heritage Park Festival of Quilts in May 2016.   Margaret is a wonderful person and a fun teacher.  We all had a great day learning from her, enjoying her artistic talent and her fun casual teaching style.  I learned so many new things and am ready to persue this collage quilting style in my sewing and art.
