Our December lecture is by Natalya Aikens, ‘Sustainable Practices in Art Quilts’.
What materials can you use in an art quilt? Anything you can stitch through! There is a certain thrill you get when buying new fabric or thread, but what if you instead got a thrill from figuring out new uses for old materials? Natalya goes through all the things you can stitch by hand and by machine to add an unexpected and wonderful texture to your artwork.
Learning all the tricks at Debbie Bein’s November workshop!
Super Saturday on February 17th 2018
We will continue registration at the next meetings, but feel free to call or e-mail me with your class request. The fee is $20, payable in advance, for one class for the whole day and lunch. The location is again the Yorktown Presbyterian Church on Route 202 and 35. This is a single-level venue, friendly and comfortable, spacious and warm. Our aim is to enable any interested guild member to participate in the event.

Sign-ups for the Lancaster Trip will continue at the December meeting. Join us March 23-24, 2018 for shopping and a day at the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show. The cost of the trip is $170 per person based on double occupancy at the hotel. Detailed itineraries will be available at the meeting. Please join us!
We will be meeting at 5:45 before the meeting in the teacher’s lounge. This month will be the reveal of the “natural” mini challenge. It does not need to be a completed project, so please bring what you have done!
