Connie and Carol are both amazing quilters and have the gift of humor, so I know you'll enjoy the dialogue! After the panel discussions are concluded, a question and answer segment will follow.

When: Thursday, October 25th at 7pm
Where: Community Room at Half Price Books
5803 E. Northwest Hwy., Dallas, TX
