Lakes Area Quilters will begin its new meeting year with many guest speakers.

The first meeting is on Monday, September 16 at 7 p.m. at Bethesda Church on Nokomis Street in Alexandria. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to visit with quilting friends and enjoy some refreshments.

The program will be Kandi Kelderman and Kim Schissel previewing their book Hot Flashes of Inspirations. They will conduct a class in the afternoon on how to paint on cloth and embellish it.

The challenge fabric projects will also be shown at the September meeting.

Beginners, as well as long-time quilters and those who appreciate quilting and fabric arts, are invited to attend all Lakes Area Quilters meetings.
