Karen, a lawyer, gave us a very spirited, humorous and informative update on copyrights, derivatives, etc. and how it impacts us as quilters. In the U.S. the annual (2014)value of quilting was $3.76 BILLION. That's right - $3.76 Billion---- and this is why intellectual property has become so important for quilters.
For Show and Share Johann brought the quilt that she made from her daughter's t-shirts accumulated over the years that her daughter competed nationally and internationally.
Carly showed her "quilt-as-you-go" and there was much discussion on how that was achieved.
Carly also showed a set of placemats that she is making as a wedding present. Lovely work.
Our last sew-in before the summer is on Saturday, May 27 at the Nanaimo North Library on Hammond Bay Road. To sign up please contact Carly at email@example.com
