Admission:  $15

The following is the planned event:


Sarah Thomas:

Officially she is a licensed (and Retired?) commercail pilot.  She  graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in Aviation Technology, where she then went on as the chief pilot of an engineering firm in the Midwest for a couple years. Married a military man,  was whisked away from my Indiana land of corn and soybeans to start the next chapter in her life. Now three moves into our marriage, which means I had to figure out a career that worked for a lady-on-the-run! Thank goodness for my geeky affection for algebra & geometry (and calculus…yep, #MathNerd) and a keen eye for design & color.

She is very thankful that her Gramma and mom taught her to enjoy crafts and handwork from a young age. She learned to crochet around age 4;  played with beadwork and wire art from age 5 or 6; cross-stitch was second nature by the time she was in 2nd grade; and my school notebooks were always filled to the brim with doodles. It’s only fitting she discovered the quilting world – where art meets math & magic happens!     https://www.sariditty.com/

Gina Perks

Owner of the Copper Needle in Payson. She is a lover of all things creative.  Her life is filled with: color, fun, ideas, texture, challenges, bling, threads, glitter, sugar and flour and sometimes chaos.  

She travels all over this beautiful country and internationally sharing her techniques with other and appearing on a multitude of shows to promote that art of quilt making.  She has authored four books and designs patterns with many new projects in the works.
