Our program for February’s Guild Meeting will feature our very own Guild’s Divas (Dames Inventing Various Approaches). Learn more about what our 2020 Divas – Pat Sanderson, Catie Gynn and Vicky Price – will be sharing below.

We will then finish the Guild Meeting with Show and Tell, in which members will share and showcase their quilts or quilted projects. Remember that if you got a Rewards Card at the January Meeting, bring it to get a stamp for anything you show off. If you didn’t get a card in January, you’ll get one at the first meeting you participate in Show & Tell!

Quilt Tips, Techniques & Tools from Our Guild Divas

Our Divas will be entertaining us with fun demos and showing us new techniques or tools. The year’s Divas are as follows:

  • Pat Sanderson: Pat will be showing us how to make a darling zippered bag from a quilted placemat.
  • Catie Gynn: Catie will be showing us all about thread painting.
  • Vicky Price: Vicky will be showing us techniques for two-sided binding and flange binding.

Everyone will get to see all three techniques, as our Divas will rotate and teach a new group every 20 minutes
