Lesley Riley, here with her 'Ten of Cups' quilt at the  SAQA
Tarnish exhibit, will present 'What it Takes to Teach–
Quilting and More' in a live web seminar May 28, 2014.

Fresh from the opening of Tarnish, an exhibition of contemporary textile works made by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc.

There will be plenty of time for questions!
