Ever Want to Try a Kaleidoscope Quilt?? Here's Your Chance . . .

If you aren't familiar with Paula Nadelstern's creations, take a quick peek, because you probably won't see anything else like it.  I bought a book of hers many years ago, thinking I would like to make one, and then realized that my ambition far exceeded my abilities!  But she will be having a workshop nearby, which might give me hope.  Smoky Mountain Quilters of Tennessee, located in Knoxville TN has planned two workshops with Paula Nadelstern Jan 31 - Feb 4, 2011 at the Holiday Inn, Cedar Bluff, just off I 40.  Lunch is included in the class fee.  For more information email or call 865-681-1466.
