2021 Specialty Teacher
Workshop April 20, 2021, 9 am to 4 pm (1 hr lunch)
“Award Winning Quilts: The Proof is in the Planning, the Construction and the Finish”

[Workshop date is not changing.]
Karin makes beautiful quilts and has won several awards for her quilts. She is also an excellent, very experienced teacher. Class attendees will receive a 40 page booklet and watch demonstrations on a large screen. Karin has detailed photographs she will be showing us of her quilts and also other quilts from shows she has attended. There is no need to bring a sewing machine.
BRING: a mask and wear it, and a sack lunch. Karin will email a supply list to you. We will NOT be having potluck as we have done in previous years due to the Pandemic.
Once the class is full, we will start a waiting list in case someone is unable to attend the class and would like to give up their seat. As per the bylaws we do not issue refunds once someone has signed up. However, we may use a waiting list and make a change, and have that person pay the student if she is unable to attend. As per our bylaws, we must first use the waiting list and then if no one is available a class member may sell their spot to anyone else.
2020 Challenge announced at the January's meeting.
"Scrappy Stash Quilt"
The challenge this year is to make a quilt entirely from scraps (except the batting may be purchased). Everything else must come from your stash, including the backing!
(You can make a scrappy back or trade fabrics with a friend.)
Several quilts and ideas for scrap quilts were shown at the January 15 guild meeting. Challenge quilts will be displayed at the November 2020 meeting.
August pincushion by Midway Wool
The photo above is of the finished pincushion taught at our August meeting. If you purchased a kit and ran out of blue thread while whip stitching your blue wool flower, Elise will have some at retreat and at the November meeting. Please bring your pincushion with you.
Cell Phone Etiquette
Please turn your cell phones off or put on vibrate during our guild meetings. If it must be on and it could bother others, use the “silent” mode and move away to talk.
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.
