I would like to start by thanking Deb K. of Lennox for inviting me to present the Barn Quilts of Grundy Co. on June 23rd 2011.  I truly enjoyed our luncheon meeting and would also like to thank those who attended.  The presentation consisted of a power point presentation and  a display of  barn quilt photos and the barn quilt map.  I also had travel guides and brochures available to anyone who wanted them.   The 2011 calendar was available for purchase and I had a sign up sheet available for anyone interested in purchasing a 2nd Edition Barn Quilt Cookbook. (Available early July 20110.)   Again I want  to thank everyone who participated in the presentation.  I would be glad to present to any group or organization who might be interested. Simply contact Kisha at 319-825-3606 or barnquilts@gcmuni.net  The only cost is mileage, depending on the location, and if you wish a donation to the Barn Quilts of Grundy Co.

I would like to thank Shelley Barron of the Pioneer Heritage Public Library in Le Grand Iowa for inviting me to present the Barn Quilts of Grundy County on Thursday the 19th. Shelley had the library all decorated and ready for visitors to view some of our work and books out about quilting  for some good reading. I appreciate the time and effort put forth on her part.  It was wonderful to meet the those who participated. Although I was nervous, being my first presentation, you were all very friendly. I hope that everyone had a great time and will stay in touch and I look forward to working with any of you in the future.
