Lisa Chats to Bonnie McCaffery

May 25, 2017

I first met Bonnie over 10 years ago when she was a well known quilter and teacher and I was a newcomer to the scene. She admitted to me as I got to know her, that she had lost the passion for quilting which I thought was an amazing admission at the time. Over the years I have watched her reinvent herself and yet stay in the same creative world. Let's hear how she achieved this.
