Membership Meeting – Pat Delaney – Red Hot Quilt Party!
Jan 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Meeting Agenda

  1.  Program – Lecture: Pat Delaney Lecture

Red!
We see it everywhere, every day. It can both grab our attention or just lie in the background. Pat will explore the origin (How is it made?) and the symbolism (Where did it come from?) with you. Red is woven throughout our language in common sayings and it is buried deep in our memories.
Pat’s own associations and memories with the color red have formed her collections and influenced the palettes for her quilts. Come and learn—you will be “seeing red” in all its glory while discovering what it can do in your quilts!

color in quilting!

Membership Meeting – Beth Heftler
Feb 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Beth Heftler Trunk Show – “Perfection is Overrated” A lively presentation of Beth’s quiltmaking journey, from her first frighteningly awful attempt at self-taught quilting to eventually founding EvaPaige Quilt Designs with her own line of unique patterns. Included are thoughts on the design process as it unfolds in 20 minute increments in the midst of the chaos of running a home and raising three small children, how a quilt can be a thing of beauty even without matching seams and perfect points, and the many joys of bringing her designs to the masses and discovering that they often can become converts to the freeing idea that “perfection is overrated”.

Meeting Agenda

  1. Program – Lecture:  David Sirota

What Makes a Quilter Tick?
A Humorous Look in the Mirror
Join me for a fun-filled, interactive, eye-opening look at quilters and all the little quirks, passions and obsessions we all share. We’ll hold a mirror up to ourselves and see what others see when they look at us. Bring your friends and family along and maybe it will help explain, to you and them, why they look at us the way they do.

Membership Meeting – Karen Kay Buckley
May 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Meeting Agenda

  1. Program – Lecture:  Karen Kay Buckley

To Border or not to Border, that is the Question
(1 hour) – During this lecture I will discuss if a quilt needs a border, how to select a border for your quilt, how I design many of my borders and how to measure to ensure a flat quilt.  As I show you many of my quilts (via Power Point if flying) I will discuss my border choices and share some fun stories along the way.  My hope is to inspire you to think about how to enhance your quilt with the right border.  Designing your own borders is much easier than you might think.
