She combines her backgrounds in fashion design, graphic design, and love of sewing to create dimensional fabric art that is bright, cheerful and fun. After the morning studio visit, we’ll travel to downtown Danville, the “Heart of the San Ramon Valley”, and have lunch (on your own) in one the town’s charming bistros. Then, there will be time for shopping at the wonderful Wooden Gate Quilts. Our second studio tour will be with Laura Fraga. Laura Fraga is an award-winning quilter who began in 1990 and has been teaching since 2000. She is known for her hand appliqué and precision piecing.
