    Why Care About Crafts?? Especially… Quilts!!!!???

    Presented by

    Totem Manager and Quilter Teresa Chase


    Down through the ages people have told their stories to share their hearts or teach the lessons they learned to the next generation which resulted in the world we ultimately know as our world today. These stories, commentaries, and lessons have taken many faces. It’s impossible to escape arts and crafts. Each person engages in these in some fashion or another, whether they recognize this or not. Wake up to great coffee and a thought provoking lecture on how the genre of crafts and especially Quilts have made an impact on our everyday lives.

    Speaker Teresa Chase has been quilting and crafting for 35 + years.

    She is a native of Grand Rapids, who adopted Flint as her home in 1989. 

    She loves anything, especially arts and crafts, that allows a person to express themselves.

    For all ages

    Totem boast a small yet sophisticated sampling of delicious

    coffees and teas, breakfast muffins and the like, and daily healthy lunch choices that are sure to please the palate.

    Prices are reasonable and as healthy for your wallet as they are for your body and soul.
