Who is the special guest speaker this year?

Doug Leko – Doug founded Antler Quilt Design in 2008, when he was still a high school student. Working in his mother’s quilt shop had helped him develop his skills and refine his art, and soon Doug began to develop and market his own designs.

Since then, his reputation has grown along with his business. He has a vibrant and growing collection of patterns available at quilt stores around the U.S. and Canada, and online at anterquiltdesign.com. His work has been featured in McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, and American Patchwork & Quilting.  Doug is a vibrant speaker and teacher, and has developed a wide following among quilters around the country. His energy and passion coupled with his unique level of experience and his innovative quilt designs make him a favorite speaker to see!

He will speak at 2 pm Friday and 11 am Saturday.  No additional charge to see Doug’s presentation, included in entry to the quilt show.
