UVQG January 2022 Meeting

    Jumpstart Your Creativity 

Wed, Jan 19,  1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Orem Senior Center

Guest: Jenedy Paige Eggleston


Jenedy is an accomplished artist, teacher and author. We’re very excited to have her and we know that you

will be inspired by her creative abilities, her vision, and her motivation to create.  Her mission truly is to  empower and inspire others and you will feel that when you hear her story.


She’ll tell us about her journey to discover the power of creativity in her life and how you can find that power of expression as well. She might even share how she keeps herself balanced by competing as a Ninja Warrior while raising her three children.

So what can a quilter learn from a portrait artist? How does the medium of paint on canvas relate to the stitching and quilting of fabric? More than you might think.  ....

Come join us for inspiration and hear how another art medium can be related to your own quilt creation experience.  See what this can stir inside each of you as you create this coming year in fabric art.


The guest speaker originally scheduled for Jan (announced at November's meeting) was rescheduled.

Words of Wisdom


My favorite quote from Brenda Sommers is: If you are a new quilter, or a quilter with shaky confidence – keep quilting!!!! You will get better, I am a much better quilter than when I started ...” Isn’t this where we all are? Loving what we do and getting better and better at it each day.
