Date & Time:  Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at 7:00 pm, Doors open at 6:30 pm

Program:  “Accept the Challenge: Just Do It!” presented by Doris Goins. This is a lively motivational lecture to encourage attendees to not be afraid to enter challenges and contests. The presentation includes many humorous stories about my experiences with entering the Hoffman Fabric Challenge. Included is a trunk show of entries from over the past 20 years.

Doris Goins is a lover of all things quilted. She began quilting as an adult in 1992 and has been a longarm quilter since 1996.  She loves to share her knowledge of quilt making through lectures and workshops, including teaching basic classes to new longarm quilters.

Doris became a Certified Quilt Judge in 2005 by the National Quilting Association. Since this organization disbanded in 2015, Doris is now certified by the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges.
