June 1-3, 7-10, 14-17, 21-24, 28-July 1
FACES, 7 North 4th Street, Denton
FACES presents the Quilts of Lisa Fields, who began her quilting journey in April 1990. She describes herself as more of a utilitarian quilter and loves making quilts as gifts for others. She enjoys all aspects of quilting from selection of fabrics to binding the quilts that she stitches. Lisa has taken many quilt workshops through the years, and she loves trying out new quilting techniques and styles. Her favorite part of the quilting experience, however, is enjoying the camaraderie of fellow quilters. There’s nothing quite like the sisterhood of quilting that helps to inspire her. Lisa is presently serving as the President of The Olde Kent Quilt Guild in Chestertown. For details, email email@example.com or visit www.fiberartscenter.com.
