"Love & Friendship"

A Message from the Program Committee:
Our February meeting theme will be “Love & Friendship”. We want to make it a fun and interactive evening with playing trivia games and bingo. As well, we are asking the members to make an item using a craft/activity that they like to do and to have a heart ❤ somewhere on it. This also can include baking/cake decorating. We ask that you submit a picture of your project to Amanda Maass at by February 7th for Show and Share.
March is International Quilting Month and our guest speaker for the March meeting will be Riel Nason. Riel is a Canadian author and textile artist (quilter). She has published several books (fiction and quilting). The quilting books that she has written and published are “Sew a Modern Halloween” and “Modern Selvage Quilting”. Riel will do a small trunk show of some of the quilts and projects from the book “Modern Selvage Quilting” as well as talk about her inspirations, designing and sewing methods.
