Scott Flanagan Trunk Show

Join the fun at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 as the Longmont Quilt Guild welcomes Scott Flanagan for a trunk show depicting his quilting journey. A Longmont native, Scott grew up in a family of crafters and woodworkers. His love of quilting began when he and his grandmother would spend hours at the sewing machine, piecing fabric together for quilts for the Lutheran World Relief Program. Scott has now made over 300 quilts, many of which are his own designs. When asked what his favorite part of quilting is, his response is “All of it—from designing to cutting, piecing, quilting and binding.”

Scott is the Creative Center Coordinator at the Country Traditions Quilt Shop in Fremont, Nebraska; he also teaches machine techniques and quilting classes. He has won awards for his quilts at the Pfaff International Convention and the Prairie Piecemakers Quilt Show. Scott started his own pattern company, 4th and Main Designs, and also creates two or three block-of-the-month designs each year. Some of his exclusive patterns will be available for purchase at the meeting.

The Longmont Quilt Guild meets the second Tuesday of each month, 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, the corner of Third Avenue and Terry Street in Longmont, CO. Meetings are free to LQG members; there is a $5 guest fee for non-members. For more information, visit www.longmontquiltguild.org.
