We are so thrilled that Timna Tarr will be visiting the Triad for our July program! She will be giving a lecture and trunk show on Tuesday, July 25 at 6:30. There is a $5 fee at the door. On Wednesday, July 26, Timna will be teaching her map workshop from 10-4. The workshop is $75 for Triad MQG members and $85 for non-members. You can reserve your spot via the paypal button below or email Triadmqg at gmail dot com to pay via cash or check. About one-two weeks prior to the class, we will send out the supply lists and details about the day of class.

Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and began quilting clients' quilts shortly thereafter. Since then she has custom designed and quilted thousands of quilts. Timna’s own nationally award-winning quilts are in private and corporate collections and have been seen in numerous exhibits, quilting magazines, and books. She is an in-demand speaker and teacher throughout the northeastern United States and is a member of her local guilds, Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild and the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild.
