What an exceptional opportunity to experience the dynamic energy and see the beautiful work of this hugely amazing Art Quilt Professional. Mary Pal lives in Ottawa and over  the past several years has become one of Canada's premier quilt artists. Her work is seen in Quilting Arts Magazine, in the Studio Art Quilt Associates Journals 15, 16 and 17 and she is a member of the Board of Directors for SAQA.

Mary will be the Guest Speaker at the Limestone Quilters' Guild meeting on Wednesday evening, September 7th at the Srs. Association Centre located at 56 Francis Street off Mowat Ave. near St. Lawrence College in Kingston. The meeting begins at 7 pm and will be an exciting and fun filled evening as Mary presents her Trunk Show and shares a talk with members and Guests centering around her quilt career, teaching, professional development and more. Mary is hugely warm and an inspiring speaker, so please do not miss this opportunity to share in a great evening with a Canadian Icon in the quilt world.

Mary is also sharing a full day workshop with Limestone Guild members on Saturday, September 10th at the Odessa Fairgrounds Hall. The workshop will include a full day of exploring the magic of using the old friend, CHEESECLOTH, in your art work...and the exciting ways she uses it to create a small "goldfish" wall quilt class sample project. Terrific chance for those who registered to get a heads up on the use of this amazing art quilt staple for all new designs. Mary is also exploring options for colouring your cheesecloth and the magic of the hand and machine stitching she uses to embellish her quilts.

For those of you who are ready for a more advanced workshop, please see the article below, as Mary is a Guest Artist with FIBREWORKS KINGSTON in November, and sharing her CHEESECLOTH PORTRAITS workshop weekend with registered students the weekend of November 11-13th. Please contact Donna Hamilton, Fibreworks Registrar, to secure your seat in this awesome weekend workshop. fibreworks@cogeco.ca
