Welcome to our next meeting on

March 21, 2018

at 1:30 & 7:00 pm

Deborah Beirnes

Deborah Beirnes of Elmira will be our guest speaker. This well-known quilter is also a designer and teacher. She has run many workshops and trunk shows specializing in scrap quilts. This trunk show is called Carpenter of Cloth and she will share her journey through traditional quilts. She is prolific and I'm sure everyone will enjoy her adventure with fabric and designs.

March will also be the seat sale, so be prepared to buy and sell. Bring your old books or fabrics and pick up new ones. What is old for someone, will be perfect for someone else. 

Workshops:

Be adventurous and join Angela Grasse for the April 14 workshop called Sumptuous Surfaces. She was our guest speaker in January and her work was so original and exciting. Angela will share her expertise with mixed media and fabric  and will teach us how to use paint sticks, transfer foil, ink sticks, paints, fusible web, laces, etc. Bring fabric about the size of a fat quarter in cotton, silk or lace and have fun. The workshop is $35 and there is a $10 supply fee.

Audrey Vrooman will be teaching a workshop at Mannheim on Saturday, Feb. 24. She has developed a system of almost invisible appliqué. A few spots are still available and the workshop is $35 plus a $20 fee for pattern and some materials.
