September Virtual Meeting & Workshop
**NEW** Special Event
During our evening program beginning at 7 PM Tammy Silvers will present “Seeing Double” to explore with us practical examples of what quilts look like in different colors and fabrics. In a fun format we will compare quilts made in florals versus batiks, reproduction fabrics versus crisp modern prints, brights versus pastels.
Tammy lives in Georgia and is a much sought after teacher. Under the label Tamarinis, Tammy's designs are regularly published in a variety of quilt magazines. She also works with some of the major fabric manufacturers designing projects to showcase and promote their fabric lines, including Northcott, Free Spirit, Maywood, Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures. Learn more about Tammy at: www.tamarinis.com.
Workshop: "Pointed Comments" using "Guided Improve" with Tammy Silvers
Tuesday, September 29 1-4PM
Tammy will teach us her newest technique “Guided Improv.” We will learn to create lovely, long sharp points with NO paper piecing, templates, or special rulers.
The workshop is “Pointed Comments” and we will be making a table runner. A supply list will be provided to all who sign up for the workshop.
Row of the Month
This year, Guild members are joining in on a "row of the month" rather than a typical block of the month. The approach is simple - each month a block pattern is featured and repeated to comprise one row of your quilt. ***The rows through July are now posted on the Members tab.***
*AQS (American Quilter’s Society) granted us permission to use their 2016 Row of the Month Quilt including the supply list and all the instructions with some stipulations... “AQS QuiltWeek Row Quilt, Copyright 2016, American Quilter’s Society. Used by permission. For personal use by guild members only. To maintain the integrity of the copyright, the quilts and pattern are not to be sold, Quilt labels should bear the tag line: ‘AQS Quiltweek Row Quilt, Copyright 2016,American Quilter’s Society. Used by Permission.’
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: REGINA APUZZO
Can you believe it’s September already! As we move into fall, I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well.
It was great seeing everyone at our August Guild Meeting, via Zoom. David Sirota (https://www.quiltmavendave.com/) provided a refreshing and humorous lecture. I’m sure many of us could identify with what he had to say – I certainly came away feeling rather good about my “collection” of fabric, rulers, and sewing machines! I think I always knew I was a collector, not a hoarder! David concluded his lecture by talking about the generosity of quilters. Quilters do have big hearts, along with their big fabric stashes! Through your philanthropic work, you, our members, use that big stash and your big hearts to provide comfort to those in need.
We had a workshop earlier in the day with David. If you missed it and would like to try his “no tears” method of paper piecing, you can find David’s online workshops on his website. David opens his workshops to the public after allowing guilds a period of time for their members to sign-up. He will, also, schedule a workshop if you can get together a group of ten.
We have a great September calendar planned for our members. Guests are welcomed to attend our workshops should there be openings. Interested guests can contact the guild through our website. Currently, we are not able to accommodate guests at our guild meetings. We look forward to doing so when we return to in-person meetings.
