Detours Exhibit at IQF Long Beach - Check it out!


I belong to several Fiber Arts and Quilt clubs with many talented members. One in particular that has a wide variety of gifted artist is "Quilts on the Wall" located here in Southern California. This group is very unique in that members live as far south as San Diego and to ways of north Santa Barbara. Much of the work of the QOTW members is extraordinary. I'm proud to promote QOTW's participation in a Fiber Arts exhibit named "Detours" at the Long Beach International Quilt Fest from July 24th to July 26th. Clever interpretations of the detour theme are featured by Madeline Bajacharya, Mia Bloom, Cynthia Catlin, Maureen Whalen Cole, Cindy Cooksey, Joanell Connelly, Jo P. Griffin, Rose Hughes, Stacey Hurt, Jeanette Kelly, Mary Beth Kile, Catherine Ravera, Suanne Summers, Mary Tabar, Susan Trindle and Susan Willen. If you have the chance check out this wonderful showing. IQF at the Long Beach Convention Center at 300 East Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90802. Be sure to check us out,
