Sneak Peek at 2020 Programs
There is Sew much to look forward to!!
We will be sewing for Quilts of Valor in February. Terri and Clayton will have a fun piecing project for us…sewing machines will hum and we’ll crank out the blocks at both meetings. Cathy Litwinow will share her extensive quilt history knowledge with 2 trunk shows and lectures in March. Signups will begin in January for Christa Watson’s workshop in April. * Christa’s focus will be quilting on your domestic machine, and the “what to do and how to do it”. You can check out her website and blog at CristaQuilts.com. Melanie McNeil will be here in May with her lecture on Medallion Quilts. We will follow up with the launch of our own “Border of the Quarter” program, to be held at the Skill Builders gathering on May 9.
Then in June, David Taylor will be here!! Signups will begin in February.* David will be teaching 3 workshops, (Sat., Sun., and Mon. prior to the meeting) and has a class limit of a whopping 30 students per class! Hand applique, machine applique and precision piecing will be the topics. David’s 2 lectures will be a treat, as well. We are excited to offer this opportunity to learn from a true master! You can check out his amazing pictorial applique quilts at davidtaylorquilts.com.
Watch for updates and details in future newsletters and eblasts.
*Snow Birds, and those out of town in January and February, be sure to arrange for a friend to get you signed up and paid ($35). We know these workshops will fill quickly!
