We always have exciting programs with nationally known speakers and talented teachers.  Please contact our  2nd Vice President for more information.

QGET is proud to be able to provide Tyler quilters with programs and workshops taught by many nationally renowned quilters.  Our speakers are authors, quilt pattern designers, fabric dyers and nationally recognized instructors. Many have produced award winning quilts at some of the most prestigious quilt shows in the United States.  


Programs are offered the second Thursday of each month following the QGET business meeting at First Christian Church, Tyler.  There is no charge to attend a program.   


Workshops vary in length from 1/2 day to a full day.  They are held on the second Friday of the month.  Full day workshops are generally $40 for members who sign up in advance and $45 for members who sign up at the meeting on Thursday just prior to the workshop.  Cost may vary with the length of the workshop. Workshops begin at 9am.  Participants are encouraged to arrive by 8:30 to set up machines and supplies if necessary.  Workshops are in the workshop room at First Christian Church, Tyler. 


Participants in full day workshops are responsible for either bringing their lunch or obtaining lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Wow! What a wonderful program we had presented by our Bee Creative group in May! The hands-on demonstrations as part of the program were a delightful addition. On Friday we had a fun and creative workshop. As a total non-artist, I learned so much and had a great time playing with all the embellishment options and seeing the freedom that you have with art quilt techniques. I am inspired and enjoying working on my project.

June- Barn Quilts & Barn Trails           Suzi Parron
You may have seen wonderful, large quilt blocks painted on signs and hung on barns and other buildings in the past. Suzi Parron has researched and written books about the Quilt Trail Movement. The presentation will be via Zoom. Here is her website: http://www.barnquiltinfo.com/suzi.htm.  
We are lucky to have 3 Barn Quilt Trails in our area, one right here in Tyler!  I am sure you will enjoy taking the trail and looking at the quilt signs! Here are the links to the websites to locate the maps. Check it out before the June meeting and you may be inspired to join the East Texas Barn Quilt Trail.
