From the President’s Desk…
I have been putting a binding on a quilt this week. That is not a good plan in this warm weather. I would put it aside for fall if I did not have a time crunch on finishing it. My granddaughter is here for a few weeks, so I have been enjoying sewing with her. I have gotten more sewing done because of her being here.
One thing I have worked on is a stone soup quilt. The pattern is a block with an inset seam. I try to avoid those, but it is the pattern with the fabric I picked. When I work on a stone soup quilt it is fun to sew with fabrics I might not chose and in this case a pattern I might not chose. As I continued making more blocks I discover the inset seam is not that difficult.
I hope you have had time to visit the exhibit. As a Docent, I have enjoyed talking with guild members and hearing their stories about the quilts at the exhibit.
We are located in Wellsboro, PA, but our members come from far and near to attend meetings and workshops.
Our guild is committed to quilting, with monthly meetings that include a program, two open sewing settings, workshops, outreach projects, and a National Speaker each year. The bi-annual exhibit, held at the Gmeiner Art & Culture Center, in Wellsboro PA, has always been a beautiful addition to the art exhibits at the gallery. Although the guild is relatively new, established in 1998, it has grown rapidly to include 140 members.
