North Coast Needlers start January with explosion of color!

Mild temperatures in Northeast Ohio this January allowed many members and guests to enjoy a brief meeting, show-and-tell projects completed by NCN members and a presentation by Karen Kay Buckley.  Thank you for sharing your talents!

After the wonderful member display of projects we delighted in a wonderful presentation titled From the Beginning: Album of a Quilter.  Karen Kay Buckley took us on a journey from her start as a quilter through many years of projects and discoveries along the way.  It was captivating and enjoyed by all.  It was a pleasure to enjoy the presence of this nationally known teacher and quilter and to see her up close and personal.  Here is a link to Karen Kay Buckley's website
