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 the first Monday of the month, from 10:00 - 2:00. Bring 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.
National Teacher Plans for 2019
Our 2019 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, 2019, 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.
