The Northeast Iowa Quilters’ Guild will next meet at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Community Room of the Luana Savings Bank Tuesday, April 4. Sisters Carolyn Clark and Dianne Rissman from the Forest Mills Quilt Shop located between Waukon and Luana will speak about the history of preprinted panels and their evolution to the products available today.

Special events and honors are often commemorated with a quilt. Fabric panels have made this practice much less time-consuming. Clark and Rissman will have many samples from the 1970s to the present, and will set up a mini-boutique with panels and patterns.
