Maine Quilts 2022 Friday Night Banquet: An Evening with Edyta Sitar

Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts will be the keynote speaker at Friday night’s banquet! You will NOT want to miss your opportunity to spend an evening with Edyta. She will be speaking on “Blue and White Quilts: Quilter’s Favorites”. Edyta is well known for her use of blue and white fabrics in her beautiful quilt designs.

Event registration opens March 15. Be sure to register as soon as registration opens; this will be a sell-out event!
