March 12, 2012 - Old Capitol Quilt Guild, Iowa City, IA

7:00PM - "The Road Home" presentation with Q&A session/trunk show
Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Court Street & 1st Avenue, Iowa City, IA.

So glad my parents could join me for the first time and my Aunt Alice for the second time.  The Old Capitol Guild was a great audience - which included several friends - Linzee Kull-McCray, Stef Rose, Danette Angerer, and Nancy Lackender (owner of Inspirations quilt shop in Hills, Iowa).  Was also pleased to have Dee Grems in attendance.  Dee is a pediatric nurse at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics (UIHC) where she specializes in cleft lip and palate repair surgeries.  For the past six years Dee has joined Iowa's Miles of Smiles on a trip to Guatemala where many lives are changed forever by the philanthropic work they do to repair cleft lips and palates of those who would likely otherwise never receive such services.

7:00PM - "The Road Home" presentation with Q&A session/trunk show
First Presbyterian Church, W. Welsh & S. Highland Streets, Williamsburg, IA

It was great to present "The Road Home" to the Iowa County Heartland Quilters in Williamsburg, Iowa!  Williamsburg was the first place I lived when I moved to Iowa in 2001.  My quilt career moved forward leaps & bounds while living there.  Living in a small town was rather lonely, but gave me lots of time to create quilts.
