President’s Message - Lynn Telson
January is almost gone. That felt fast. We had Emily Taylor, a collage quilter speak to us. Her work is beautiful.
We had a Zoom glitch so could not do show and tell. But all of January show and tell will be seen in February.
February meeting will be busy with 2 months of show and tell, 3 possibly 4 demos and finished sew along quilts. I request that if you sent a show and tell or sew along quilt to me that you attend the meeting to speak to us about your quilt.
Nominating Committee: We need to form a committee to present a new board slate to the membership. I am looking for a few volunteers. Please contact me through email (email@example.com).
See you in February!
Programs - Jen Burke
As a reminder, Lynn has asked us to invite a friend to each of these programs if we can!
In February we will have the following presenters
Lynn Telson will be doing connecting binding ends
Carolyn Davis will be showing us flange binding. And maybe a pressing demo.....
Kelly Meanix presents glue basting your curves
Maureen Carlson demonstrates the “do’s and don’ts of scrap quilting”
Thank you, Ladies for volunteering. Since the platform is new and many of you have never presented before on it, we will give you a ton of grace for any malfunctions that might occur. We will also blame them all on zoom and not you!
In March we are looking forward to hosting Lori Dickman as she presents “My favorite 3Ds”: A trunk show of Lori’s favorite “D” quilts! This trunk show features over 30 of Lori’s quilt designs with styles that will cover every quilter’s favorites: from traditional to applique to modern and everything in between! ! In this lecture, Lori will inspire you to pick up those template rulers and have fun designing and piecing fabulous quilts! Quilting templates have always been Lori’s “go-to” tools for piecing fast and fun quilts. The Diamond, Dresden & Drunkards’ Path templates are versatile tools which she has used to create literally dozens of different designs in quilts, accessories & wearable art!
