A shout out to our members who welcomed the newer members of our guild last meeting.  I was told that it meant a lot to them and made them feel at home.

Melanie Dossey’s “Beginners Thread Painting Demonstration” was very informative and inspiring.  Attendees enjoyed the painting process, they asked many relevant questions and went home with a new quilting knowledge.

June is Hand Appliqué demonstration.  Lisa Martin will show us how she does her Prepared Edge Appliqué technique.  I suggest you  bring your note pad and take notes or take pictures with your phone as the process is very involved.  No supplies necessary.

July, Sue Olson will show us how to make a Steampunk block, AKA a Propeller block.  If you are interested, there is a pattern you can purchase, Jen Kingwell is the designer.  She will demonstrate how she made the Steampunk/Propeller block. 

August, Rose Wilson will demo Cathedral Windows. 

September, TBD

I will let you know the material List for each demonstration/technique as they become available to me.
Corey Starkey, 1st Vice President

Where does it meet?
     Usually, the meeting room is in the second building in the room #5 Conference Room. This is also the room where workshops are held.
When does it meet?
     The meeting starts about 30 minutes after the Guild meeting concludes or around 12:30. This start time allows you to get a quick meal or enjoy a sack lunch that you brought from home. There is a snack-eating area in the foyer of the second building.
