Who said, "Quilting is only for the girls?"

Posted by

Girls, we know the feeling of being ignored in an 'auto shop'.  Well, Scott Hansen gets that same feeling when he enters a quilt shop and is ignored or asked if his wife is a quilter.  

As one of three men teaching at the 2016 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show™, the Oregon quilt show recognized internationally as being the largest outdoor quilt show, Scott's quilts will be included in the 'teacher's exhibit'.

For an interesting article highlighting Scott go to http://www.bendbulletin.com/entertainment/4467559-... and for all the details about the 2016 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show which is being held this Saturday, July 9th, go to http://sistersoutdoorquiltshow.org/show-info/gener...
