The Quilters Guild of East Texas 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 $45 for members and $50 for non-members.  Cost may vary with the length of the workshop. Workshops begin at 10 am.  Participants are encouraged to arrive by 9:30 to set up machines and supplies if necessary.  The classes meet in the Christian Life Center (CLC) building which is behind the church building where we have our Guild meetings. We use Room 5. You may bring your lunch or get take-out locally during our lunch break.

    Combining Anna Maria's interest in composing vignettes and

    handwork, she presents a class that covers all of the techniques necessary to create a visual feast of fabric and stitching. Multiple techniques for applique, raw and turned, by machine and by hand, are shared on top of a lesson in composition. Learn to see fabrics in a completely different way as you hunt for special elements to join as  starring roles or the supporting cast in your applique story. Projects can be framed as artwork, become a special cushion or the beginning of a larger quilt.

    This class will focus on hand applique. 

    No sewing machines necessary.
