HAPPY HOUR SEWING IN CORNING: We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month in Corning at Emanuel Lutheran church hall, 149 West William Street, 5:00-8:00 pm. This is open sewing time for members and other guests to work on their own projects or community outreach projects. Please feel free to join us for a fun-filled evening of sewing and sharing.
OPEN SEWING SESSIONS!
All MLQG members of all ability levels and interests are welcome to attend the open sewing sessions at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center (where the monthly guild meetings are held) on Mondays 10:00 - 2:00 to work on any stitching projects, hand or machine, even knitting/crocheting/embroidery.
The purpose of these get-togethers is to spend time with other MLQG fiber fanatics and to learn from each other, no matter what we're all working on. Bring your projects, machine, and lunch. Stay for an hour or stay all day. Just be warned that if only a couple of people show up, we may pack up early and leave before noon. Cancellations will be posted on the guild's blog/website/Facebook page.
Bargello Table Runner Workshop
MLQG member Sylvia will be teaching a bargello table runner workshop on Wednesday, June 20th (9:00 - 4:00) at the Knoxville (PA) Community Center. Once you learn the technique, it can easily be expanded into a larger quilt.
The cost is $10 for guild members, $15 for non-members. It includes the pattern and lunch (sandwiches/chips/water). Signups for MLQG members begin NOW.
To sign up, contact Anya at email@example.com. Full payment is due by June 11 (cash or checks made out to MLQG). Full refunds for cancellations until June 14th. After that, if there is no wait list, you are responsible for finding someone to take your place or forfeit your payment. Signups for non-members begin May 1st. Supply list will be provided once you sign up.
Did you know that Saturday, March 17th is National Quilting Day?
National Teacher Plans for 2018
Our 2018 National Quilter will be Debby Kratovil. Debby was Special Projects Editor with QUILT Magazine for 15 years, with over 600 articles published. Twenty -five of her quilts have made the covers of quilting magazines. She has authored three quilting books, the most recent is “Perfect Paper Pieced Points”, and her perpetual Quilter’s Block-a-Day Calendar is a favorite. She will be speaking at the May Guild meeting, on Friday, May 18, 2018, with a lecture/trunk show titled “Shortcuts from a Short Woman.” Remember that the May meeting will not be the third Monday, as usually scheduled. There will be a full day workshop on Saturday, May 19, but details have not been finalized. Stay tuned for further information. Signups should begin at the January Guild meeting, and will be limited to 25 participants, at a cost of $42.50. Depending on the workshop, there may be a tool or pattern fee, as well.
