This is the first meeting of the year with the Guild’s new officers. It is also the first opportunity to sign-up for any of the three workshops scheduled for this year.
Learn about “the care and feeding” of older quilts. Georgia quilter, Glenda Jones, will be presenting a trunk show of her antique quilts.
Charlotte Angotti, of Quiltmakers Studio, is our speaker and workshop leader for this month. Charlotte is a former quilt shop owner and has been teaching internationally since 1991. She’s well known for her sense of humor and way with color and fabric.
Sunday’s workshop is entitled “Surprise Yourself”. You will learn how to use simple units and your own artistic eye to create your own quilt design. You will also see how quilts can be broken down and put back together.
Monday’s lecture asks “Why Aren’t You Making More Quilts?” Join us. You can find out more about Charlotte and check out the supply list at www.quiltmakersstudio.com.
