As a “foodie” Cheryl has also contributed to the Edmonton Journal, the Calgary Herald, and Christmas 365. In addition, she is the former Food Editor for What’s Up Families magazine and has been published online at delishmag.com, simplebites.net, babble.com and foodnetwork.com.
The workshop will be based Cheryl’s first book, Sunday Morning Quilts (2012, Stash Books) which she co-authored with Amanda Jean Nyberg.
