Alex Anderson

Yesterday I attended an event sponsored by our local Bernina dealer that featured Alex Anderson. It was held at the Marriott Hotel in Overland Park, Kansas. The morning started with a continental breakfast and shopping. What's not to love there?!?! The Bernina dealer had several machines set up for trial runs. Plus, they had someone demonstrating the new AccuCut Go. Pretty sweet.



After opening remarks, Alex took the stage. She spoke about her early years, learning how to quilt, "Simply Quilts" and "The Quilt Show." She also presented a trunk show. We took a break and then she continued her lecture. The morning ended with a question and answer period and then a book signing. What a delightful person! Her lecture was entertaining, funny, informative and lively. If you get a chance to experience an Alex Anderson lecture and/or trunk show, go for it. You will not be disappointed.
