    Kudos to the members of Dogwood Chapter for their fabulous showing at Quilt Fest in Atlanta!! I appreciate the time and effort that went into your booth and I\’m hearing fabulous things that are happening as a result of that work!! Congrats on getting some new members in your chapter. Well done!

    • Thank you Leslie! We’re still just thrilled about the results, and know it’s a start to even greater things!

Diane’s website can be found at www.http://dianeherrmann.com/ You should speak with your VP of Programs for your chapter about bringing her in. You’d have to ask Diane if you can buy the kit without taking the class.

    • If you check the Walking On Water’s Edge Facebook page, Diane announced she is teaching the course on a Royal Caribbean cruise on the Anthem in 2018 or 2019.
