In November, Mrs. Laura Delange quilts are showcased in the Quilter’s Gallery. XYZ”s bio…….
Laura DeLange has been quilting since 2002. she considers herself a ‘topper’ because she doesn’t do the quilting herself, but has someone else finish her projects for her. She especially enjoys the process of picking out the fabrics and patterns. Laura considers pattern instructions to be more like suggestions rather than hard-fast rules, and she often will alter or manipulate the original pattern to make it more unique. In her past life, she was an accountant, so the math aspect of the quilting isn’t a problem for her. Laura says “I’d rather be quilting than anything else!!”
When you display your quilts in our gallery it gives everyone who comes into the store, and the entire quilting community an opportunity to view your talent and see the vast array of local quilting styles, colors and techniques. While quilts are on display, photos will be taken and a CD created so you can maintain a record of your exhibition. During the month you display your quilts, you will receive a 20% discount in the store. We welcome all levels to participate in this exciting opportunity! Call the store to sign up for an upcoming month. We look forward to hearing from you.
