August Meeting Reminder

August Meeting Reminder

August Program:
Dyeing to Quilt with Mary Dittenber

Mary has been quilting for 17 years and also teaches. Her interest in fabric manipulations started her on the path to dyeing fabric to use in her works.
Mary will talk about her adventures in dyeing fabric and will share examples of her work. We hope you can attend! 

Are you interested in becoming an LMQG officer for the upcoming year? 

We are looking for individuals who are interested in being on the executive board, as well as committee chair positions for the Holiday Party and our Quilt Show at Bernina. If you are interested, please email or speak to any of the current board members.

August Sew Day Reminder

August Sew Day at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, 
August 13th, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Kristie Jarchow will give a quick demo on how to sew a wonky house block. If you want to make one house or a whole village, you will need to bring enough background fabric and several patterned fabric scraps to make an 18" house block. Aren't these houses fun? Can't wait to give it a try! As always, you can bring whatever projects you want to sew and bring show and tell to share.
Hope to see you there! 
  • Just a reminder that the 13th is the last day of the county fair. Volunteers may be needed to take down quilts at 7:30 pm. Quilt pick up times are Saturday night, August 13th from 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm and Sunday morning, August 14th from 9:00 am - noon.
