RUTLAND Maple Leaf Quilters will sponsor a special workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 17; it will include a trunk show featuring the work of Pamela Druhen of Northfield. Druhen visited the Vermont Quilt Festival in 1994 which started a journey of using fabric and thread in quilting in a water color format. She now uses the beauty and the diversity of Vermonts landscapes for her work. The workshop, titled Thread Painting for Real, will be held at the United Methodist Church on Williams Street in Rutland from 9 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. Plan on bringing a lunch. The groups Oct. 21 meeting will feature wool appliqu頢y Susan Joseph. For reservations, call Sharon 802-775-1137.
