 Mark Lipinski to visit  for lecture and workshops  
    One of the most entertaining quilters in America will be at the WMQFA next June for a lecture and two, all-day workshops.   An Emmy-award-winning television producer and development executive,  Lipinski turned his creative touch to quilting, co-hosting Quilt Out Loud  and Creative Mojo with Mark Lipinski.  He is also a prolific pattern designer and has created fabrics for Northcott, Troy Fabrics, Benartex, Andover and others.   In 2014, Lipinski introduced the "Slow Stitching Movement," encouraging quilters, knitters and other needle artists to walk away from their machines and enjoy the tactile experience of hand-stitching. Lipinski will lecture on this topic on Friday, June 10, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in our Barn Gallery.   On Saturday, June 11, Lipinski will lead an all-day mystery quilt workshop "Throw Me A Curve."  On Sunday, June 12, Lipinski lead his "Stars and Stripes" Workshop.   Don't miss out on this chance to work alongside one of quilting's most hilarious personalities!  For more information and to register for his events, go to:   Lipinski lecture   Throw Me A Curve   Stars & Stripes Workshop
