WONDERFUL!!! Sunday evening I went to a trunk show/lecture given by Carol Doak at Threads of Time in Danville, Il. It was magnificent!!! She is not only a gifted quiltologist, writer, and speaker but also very personable, and has a great sense of humor. I was one of the lucky ones that registered early enough to get in on the overnight stay and workshop the next day. Carol taught from her book, "Mariner's Compass Stars" and we made the "Sunrise" block. She had many helpful hints and made paper piecing fun. The only down side to the whole event is finding out that she's retiring from the lecture circuit at the end of this year. SO, if you get the chance to go to one of her lectures or workshops DO IT NOW!!! Even though the book signing was during the hour long reception before the trunk show, she signed books right up till the end of the workshop.
