Shenanigans Trunk Show
Our January speaker is Kathleen O’Flaherty from the Niagara area. Kathleen’s mother was 46 when she was born and taught her skills out of the Depression Era such as thriftiness, innovation and resourcefulness. Kathleen will take us on an entertaining journey of 45 quilted pieces that demonstrate these life skills in her Shenanigans Trunk Show. Pieces will include quilts, wall hangings, cushion covers, handbags and more. Every quilt has a story and Kathleen will share how she evolved into a modern quilter with examples covering the topic: What is a Modern Quilt. We will travel through time with Kathleen, laughing at her shenanigans on her way from traditional to modern and improv quilting.
