Zoom or Physical Meeting or Combination of the Two??

 

At the moment we aren't totally sure how things will be in the new year.  We aren't sure about when UCR will be open for meetings or what their capacity will be.  The board is also considering the safety of our members, guests and lecturers.  

 

Our lecturers are ready to do Zoom meetings and classes so that is a real plus for us in the valley and for our members who have not been able to return yet to the Coachella Valley.  We will keep our members informed as we know for sure how these meetings will be presented and the board hopes you will be able to join us.

February Meeting -- Saturday, February 13, 2021

Jean Impey

Cre-a-tiv-it-y

 

Meeting begins at 10:00am

Program begins at 11:00am

 

Art has been an integral part of Jean Impey's life since she was a child. She remembers always being intrigued and absorbed with making things. Her mother encouraged her exploration of all things creative and her life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.

“Cre-a-tiv-i-ty and has Someone Stolen Yours” – This lecture is even better on Zoom and provides motivation and a new confidence that you didn’t know you had.  It also gives you the newest tools and technology to make quilts and make your work both quicker and better.  You will already be at your computer, phone or tablet and make sure you have somewhere to take notes because you’ll be shocked to see how much you learn.  Jean promises…. If you feel that you will never be an art quilter (because you can’t draw….. Jean will solve that problem) and who knows where you can go with that objection out of the way. sew jean.com
