Quilters here in Grand Rapids, Michigan, have been waiting more than two years for Sharon, 54, of Payson, Arizona, to come to town, and this week it’s finally happening. You can read my column about Sharon in the Home & Garden section of today’s GR Press or read it online.

If you’re local, you’re invited to come to her demonstration lecture on pieced applique hosted The West Michigan Quilter’s Guild at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Calvary Christian Reformed Church, 3500 Byron Center Ave. SW in Wyoming.
The cost is $7 for the lecture, or $30 to join the guild and attend six meetings a year.

Be sure to check out the free quilting videos and tutorials Sharon has available on her site. She also offers a fee-based subscription service if you’re looking to pick up more advanced techniques.
