Kira Hartley Klinger is the owner and curator of DodOddity who hunts for vintage fabrics from all over and sources them for her store.  For the quilts that get handed down that need some care or finishing, this is a great place to look.  

Kira will be our guest speaker and talk about how she finds the fabrics and the stories that come with the search.  She will bring a selection of her fabrics for sale.  Her book “Fabric Wars”, will also be available for purchase.      Check out her Etsy page at
