Our guild was founded in 1999 and our members include beginners through experts, with interests from art quilts to traditional quilts in an array of materials. Our purpose is to share a love of quilts and quilt making. We also sponsor seminars, exhibitions, workshops, and community service projects.
Thanks to Olga Schrichte of Frederick, MD, for the image of "The Spires of Frederick," above, which she designed and created in August 2015.
We meet on the first Thursday of each month, 6 p.m., at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, 40 S Carroll St, Frederick, MD
Next meeting: April 5, 2018
Program Workshop and Speaker:
"Through the Needle's Eye"
Teri Young created her business, Through the Needle's Eye, with her stitching partner, Kara Mason in 2015. Teri is an accomplished quilter and stitcher. She has presented workshops and lectures at local guilds, taught workshops for the Baltimore 'Applique Society, as well as, at the Academy of Applique in Williamsburg, VA. We are delighted that Teri will be with us for our April meeting.
Below is a description of the workshop she will teach at our meeting:
Ribbon embellishment can make your appliqué and needlework come to life. We will create three types of flowers and leaves with different kinds of ribbon: 7mm silk ribbon, Hanah bias silk ribbon, and French wired ombré ribbon. Some simple knots create the flower centers. When you arm yourself with a few simple ribbon techniques, you will be amazed by the distance that your imagination can carry you. You may find yourself creating lovely gardens—with no weeds!
You will be provided with all the ribbon, thread, and floss that you need, including a #26 chenille needle for the ribbon embroidery.
- Sharp, small scissors
- Junk scissors to cut wired ribbon
- An 8-inch square of background fabric
- Your favorite sewing needle
- Fine sewing thread in purple, red, and green—or a neutral color
Please join us at the Delaplaine for our April meeting.
