You’re Invited: Doreen Speckmann Remembered

Like everyone else in this country, we are praying and hoping for the day when we can resume normal activities.  We need to take care of ourselves and our families and support those caring for those afflicted with coronavirus.  They are the true heroes.  Quilters and sewists from around the world have come forward to create the much needed masks to help safeguard their health.

The best thing we can do to support our health professionals and first responders is to “Stay Home.”  If you have the ability to do that, this can be a time to slow down, reorganize and renew.   In doing that, we can replace fear with hope.

This is also a challenging time for small businesses, which include our favorite quilt shops.  We look forward to seeing many of them at Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival next year.  We encourage you to support them online if you can.

As you follow our posts, you will see that we are moving forward to Festival in June of 2021.  We’ll update you on those plans as they are made – including sponsors and vendors who have already committed, and classes, when that information becomes available.  We also hope to share with you some prize-winning quilts from KCRQF 2019, and other quilt related information.

We hope that these posts will be a bright part of your day as you shelter at home.

Today, we’d like to share with you an opportunity to join the “Doreen Speckmann: Virtual Lunch and Learn” on April 3 with the Iowa Quilt Museum and the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts.   Doreen was a dynamic force in the quilting world.  If you had the opportunity to meet her in person, you quickly learned that she was a true treasure, and was not only inspirational, but entertaining.   Find out more about this unique opportunity here:
