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: March 1, 2018
Program Speaker: Cyndi Souder
"Creating Celebration Quilts"
Join us for an inspirational program by Cyndi Souder, Virginia art quilter. Her program will be a lecture combined with a small trunk show. She will share her secrets to creating personal, meaningful celebration quilts. Whether you are celebrating a birth or a wedding, commemorating the life of someone you've loved and lost, or maybe you just have bags and boxes of clothing and artifacts that you can't bear to throw away but you're not sure how to use, Cyndi will share with us how to tell the story in a celebration quilt. Everyone will leave with at least one idea you can use right away! Her lecture also coordinates with her book, Creating Celebration Quilts.
Also on tap will be the great reveal and display of our 2018 Opportunity Quilt and Raffle Baskets .
Mini-Swap will be back, so bring items to add to our table. All funds generated go toward programs for next year, so clean out those sewing rooms. Your unwanted items may be just the thing another member is looking for!
The ever popular Show and Tell will end our evening of quilting inspiration.
