Elise Larsen 

-trunk show

We are so (sew) excited to start a new year! Here we go 2020!!! Our January program will include some very interesting and enjoyable people and projects.


First, our past president, Elise Larsen will present a trunk show of her quilts. She has lots of lovely quilts and her they speak to her fun personality. It will be delightful to hear from her as she shares a bit about her quilting journey. We are so appreciative of all the work and time she has volunteered to our guild.


Each month throughout the coming year we will have an "Organization" spot by Kathy Porter and a "Tips and Tools" demonstration by Alysa Lovell. They are amazing ladies and full of great ideas. You won't want to miss!

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.
