At our February meeting on Monday the 13th, we will be selling a variety of hand and machine quilted items that have been donated to our guild. Below is a preview of the items that will be for sale. Share with your friends, come to the meeting and purchase. All of the proceeds will be used to benefit the guild and its charity outreach.
2016 Quilt Show
“CELEBRATE!!: 35 Years of Quilting”
Preserving the Art of Quilt Making
The Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild, Inc. is a non-profit organization governed by Guild Officers and operates under set bylaws. Committee Chair members help to promote quilting within the Guild and the community through local and regional projects and educational programs. The Guild preserves traditional methodologies and adds to its history by developing and encouraging new fiber art concepts.
We meet each second Monday of the month at Parkway Presbyterian Church on the corner of Silas Creek Parkway, between Yorkshire and Kirklees Rd, Winston-Salem, NC. The church entrance is off of Kirklees Rd (Click here to see a map). Fellowship begins at 6:30 P.M., business meeting at 7:00 P.M. and then the program at 7:30 P.M. Come join us. All are invited to attend.
The theme for this year is “Something New, Something Different”. It is my hope this year to present new and different programs and workshops for members to expand their quilting knowledge and to encourage each and every one of you to participate in the guild’s various charity and out-reach activities. As part of this emphasis, we will have presenters from new and different areas such as Michael Cunningham on quilt design and fabric dyeing, Beth Dix on ‘redwork embroidery, and Sherri Aycock on the ‘modern’ quilt movement. During three different months, we will have programs on our charity/community outreach efforts — nap blankets (August), senior lap blankets (November) and preemie quilts (April). I hope members will attend all of our meetings and programs this year and participate in our workshops. It is important that we continue to grow as quilters and as benefactors of our community, and I hope that as your president, I can be a small part.
