She taught two classes:

Feathers Four Ways



Pat Knoechel came back to the Guild in November.  She is a Guild favorite.  Pat brought with her a fabulous Trunk Show.  It is refreshing to see and learn from one of the industries leaders.  Pat also taught a class for us, Circle of Friends.  Her practically packed workshop was loved and enjoyed my many.  Look for Pat Knoechel to be back in 2020!!
