Lisa O'Neill Lecture - Just a Sliver, Please!

At first glance, Lisa's Sliver Quilts look complicated and time-consuming.  They are not.  It is our hope that you will find Lisa's work inspiring and that this program will ignite your creative energy.

Members will have the opportunity to examine Lisa's work up close and will have the opportunity to purchase her book, Sliver Quilts.
