Workshop Chairpserson 2018: Kathi Runyan

contact Kathi Runyan at 817-488-7577 or email her at kayvee78@aol.com.

     The speakers and workshops are for you, the member.  If you have a favorite speaker, contact Vice President  and see if she can get them for 2019 or to fill in a spot this year. 
     No matter how long you have been quilting, you can always learn something new.  Workshops give us the opportunity to try a new technique and not invest a lot.  You can learn new ways to do things.  If you are new to quilting it is a great opportunity to not only learn from the workshop but from your fellow quilters.    Never stop learning!  It's also a great way to have a day of fun!

August 21, Speaker Debbie Maddie  is going to share her insights into Shibori Dyeing Techniques, information she has learned from her trips to Japan! It will be a very interesting lecture and display at the August meeting.

September 18, Speaker Ann Moore will present a trunkshow and informative lecture about free motion quilting and using rulers with quilting. Ann has some stunning work to share and your creative side will get a jolt when you see the quilting you can accomplish.

October 16, Speaker Carol Morrissey:  Big News, we will get to see Carol Morrissey in
October! She will present her "Confessions of an Absent-Minded Quilter" at our meeting.

Start planning for the November 21 meeting, gather your team and let's have some fun while serving our Veteran community. Each 'team' will create a 12 inch block from mystery fabric provided to be made into a Quilt of Valor. You can pre-plan your block orientation, but you will use the fabric provided at the meeting for our donation. Teams can consist of however many members you'll need to cut, piece and assemble one block during the activity portion of the meeting. We will have cutting and ironing stations available, but teams should provide their own sewing and piecing set ups. The goal is to have 12 teams, so we'll finish with 12 blocks for a lovely quilt. I'll be looking for a long arm specialist to donate the quilting! Start putting together your team now and sign up in August!
