2019 — APRIL PROGRAM

This month’s program was given by Rose Marie Smith and Kay Beach on the quilts of Gee’s Bend. Both ladies made their own version of a Gee’s Bend quilt, shared their thoughts on the process of making each one, and read excerpts from a book about the original quilt makers.

Thank you, Rose Marie and Kay for a great program!

2019 — APRIL SHOW & TELL

The Show & Tell tonight was wonderful. We had a great variety of quilts and most all of the “Seeing Spots” quilts (or parts of quilts) from those who attended the Carl Hentsch retreat. Thanks to everyone for bringing their quilts to share. What wonderful inspiration to all!

Reminder — November Meeting is a Week Early This Month!

A note from our president–
As you look forward to the coming week, don’t forget that we will have our November Guild Meeting THIS Wednesday (11/14) since our regular meeting night is the evening before Thanksgiving this year.  The program will be a demonstration on how to make “rope bowls” by our own Deb Freese and Barb Roberts.  It should be a great program!!  Sign-up for the Christmas Party/Dinner will also continue.
Also a reminder that the Community Service Committee has asked that we bring non-perishable food items to THIS meeting rather than the December meeting.
Hope to see you there!!
Brenda

2018 — OCTOBER SHOW & TELL and PROGRAM

Our October guild meeting was full of beautiful quilts, starting with Kris Kilderman from the Sewing House in Ottumwa, Ia., who shared her quilts and discussed color theory. She and her friend used to have the Sewing Bus years ago. Kris told some fun stories about  the bus and also provided members with handouts and a free pattern!

 

And the Show & Tell was equally awesome, with lots of funny stories, to boot.

Jana Russon has been on a bowl-making frenzy and shared some of her colorful bowls with us. It’s a great segway to November’s program by Deb Freese and Barb Roberts on how to make them. (Kits will be available for $5) Be sure to attend and see how easy and fun these are to make!
