SAQA Central Canada artist, LINDA KITTMER, to be a Featured Artist in new publication, 1000 Quilt Inspirations...

A Quarry Book by Sandra Sider
 
Linda is a member of SAQA Central Canada, living in Georgetown, ON. She has written today to share her excitement of the news that she has been one of the artists to have several pieces (she has been  told eleven pieces) that have been included in Sandra Sider's beautiful soon to be released book, 1000 Quilt Inspirations. Please join me in congratulating Linda as she assumes her featured artist status in the book.
