August 2022 Guild Meeting

 Wed, Aug 17th, 1:30 pm

 Orem Senior Center

Polka Dot Gals


August’s meeting is featuring a vibrant, creative quilt group from far away Orem, The Polka Dot Ladies. It is composed of three ladies who have combined quilting experience of over 80 years! One of them, is also a beautiful long arm quilter.


They became the Polka Dot quilters because dots are their favorite fabric which they incorporate into EVERY quilt they make. The more dots, the merrier the quilt. Dots, dots, DOTS! Never enough Dots!


They meet together as a group, and every 4-8 weeks invite friends to join them for a three day quilting event, full of the essentials: sewing, quilting, eating, laughing, and sharing heart to heart stories. They often make the same quilt with their own twist or color way., but always there are dots. They have really bonded over their quilting adventures over the years. These ladies are bubbly, delightful, and will treat you to a gorgeous trunk show of their creative works. Hope you will join us August 17 and be inspired!

Please wear your name tag.

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.
