    Virtual Show & Tell - Locked Down and Breaking Out

    I'm guessing no one in the guild (or anywhere else) has ever experienced anything like the sweep of the pandemic. We could have curled up in a tiny ball and cried - and maybe some of us did - but then we all got going. Our guild sewed over 3,200 face masks for health care and emergency services providers. We've not slowed down at all on the Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project. We've supported our local quilting stores as they went entirely online. I'm guessing that many of us looked on our quilting as a lifeline, something to keep us grounded during these unprecedented times. Well, let's see 'em, guys and gals. It's time to share projects you've completed since November 2019. Big or small...pandemic-inspired or pure escapism...let's join to celebrate the unquenchable creative process we all love so much.

    Sincerely,


    Jean Smith

    Century of Women’s Progress, 1920 – 2020

    presented by Jennie Alexich


    Voices in Cloth 2020 celebrates the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with a special exhibit of story quilts highlighting progress toward equality since women obtained the vote in 1920.


    While acknowledging the reality that full equality for all women and girls remains an ideal and hard-won rights can erode or disappear without vigilance, this 100-year period includes important milestones, achievements, and changes improving our quality of life. The twenty-five original pieces in this exhibit illustrate some of the people, movements, ideas and events of the past century of women’s history in the United States.


    To stage this exhibit an open, nationwide challenge was issued seeking small quilts displaying a range of traditional and innovative techniques, accompanied by narratives providing additional information about the subject of the quilt. Entrants were encouraged to convey personal connections to the topic and its relevance to others. The entries were juried by a panel of three art and fiber experts, Inez Brooks-Myers, Patricia Guthrie and Rosa Valdez, supported by historian Melinda McCrary.


    Meet here for a Gallery Walk on Monday, December 28th at 6:30 PM. You can also find our online exhibit through February of 2022 at:  Century of Women's Progress

    Virtual Workshop  Design Journal - Unlock your Hidden Creativity

                            

      


    Pati will bring her training as a designer, and years as an art quilter, to walk you through a process to help you harness your own design esthetic, and understand how to use this as your creative voice. By embracing things that appeal to you, Pati will help you identify the shapes, patterns, colors and emotions that speak to you and then help you bring them together into a cohesive design. She’ll also show you how to integrate this process into your ongoing life through building a design journal.

    This is a great workshop for everyone from beginning quilters who want to be more self-assured in their color selection, and design choices, to experienced quilters who are looking to expand and latch onto their artistic vision. Come prepared to have fun and learn something new about yourself!

    Virtual Workshop - Home Sweet Home

                            

                   


    “Home” means something different to all of us. One thing we can agree on is that we have spent a lot of time in our homes these past few months. Let’s take a lighthearted approach to the endless possibilities of the definition of home.


    This will be a day to play with all the happy colors, shapes and prints you can find in your fabric stash. Pati will demonstrate a few techniques to piece, fuse and glue as our house construction, but the focus of the day will be on fun and letting your imagination be in charge.
