Bonnie Bucknam to Speak at Northwest Quilt Guild, Portland, December 9, 2013

Bonnie Bucknam will be the featured speaker at the Northwest Quilters Guild meeting on Monday December 9, 2013, at 7pm.  The meeting will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 7810 SE 15th Street, Portland, Oregon.

Here's a bit about Bonnie's lecture, Sticks and Stones:
Bonnie Bucknam’s art quilts have won national and international recognition, including Quilt National 2011 Best of Show.  Her quilts are abstract interpretations of the natural world.  Join her as she takes you through the design and construction processes used in her latest two series of works. You’ll see her evolution as an artist and follow her creative process through the step-by-step construction of some of her recent quilts.
