Virtual Speaker

Melissa Marginet

"Get your Motor Running"

Melissa is a quilter living in Manitoba, Canada.  She says that she grew up next to her

grandmother, and credits her for "a great start to my creative life".  Melissa says she

caught the "quilting bug" in 2001 when she took a Log Cabin class to get rid of some

fabric laying around.  It sounds like this backfired, because now she has "way more

fabric laying around now than she did back then".  Melissa is the creator and webmaster

of Quilt Manitoba, a website that lists quilt resources, links, and activities for quilters

living in, or visiting Manitoba.  Melissa's presentation will be about learning how to

spark creativity in yourself or in your guild with challenges that will have everyone

thinking outside of the box.  This trunk show has more ideas than you will know what to

do with, to get everyone not only learning new techniques, but building their quilting

and creative confidence.  You can learn more about Melissa at melissamarginet.ca.
