The STLMQG welcomes Shannon Brinkley to St. Louis

The STLMQG is so excited to be bringing Shannon Brinkley to St. Louis this April and is pleased to extend an invitation to her trunk show and lecture to the entire St. Louis-area quilting community.
Shannon Brinkley is a quilt and fabric designer, author, and speaker based in Austin, TX. She began quilting in college, where she fell in love with the craft. Inspired by her love of fabric and texture, Shannon wrote her book, Scrappy Bits Appliqué, in which she teaches how to turn scraps of fabric into gorgeous, modern art quilts by collaging a variety of fabrics, vintage and new, with different colors, tones, and patterns to create interesting and unique textures. On her popular blog, she has hosts series on a variety of topics, from appliqué to color theory.

Shannon will be presenting a trunk show and lecture on her quilting journey and what led her to develop her appliqué techniques. The presentation is open to the public, and we hope you can join us! Details below.
