Monday, April 10, 7 pm – Speakers from the South Bay Modern Quilt Guild
The meeting will be Downtown at The Center for Non Violence, Ocean Street, Santa Cruz. The South Bay Modern Quilt Guild will bring lots of small Modern Quilts and, sitting around round tables, you will get to handle, admire, discuss and choose favorites from among them. They will lead a discussion of the different aspects of Modern Quilting, as you get to play with all the different samples, and vote on favorites. It should be a very interactive, unusual and fun night
Saturday, April 29, 10 am-3 pm – Quilting Bee.
Bring whatever you want to work on, and have a great day sewing with friends. The Quilting Bee is free, and will be at Community Foundation in Aptos. Betty Whitman will also have us working on the blocks for the 2019 Opportunity Quilt, “Hugs and Kisses in the Garden.” The blocks are very easy and will go together quickly. More info will be available later as to what fabrics you should bring to help with this project. Come join us as we get started on this quilt. Contact Meryl Selman to sign up for the Bee.
Monday, May 8, 7 pm – Christine Barnes.
“Color: A Step-by-Step Tutorial” Lecture. How, exactly, do I plan and make a quilt? Which comes first, the design idea or the fabric? How do I “hunt and gather” fabric for a quilt? How does pattern affect color in fabrics? ” Digital step-by step images demonstrate the process, and a trunk show of quilts and wearables follows.
The guild now has a presence of Facebook. Facebook is useful for getting information out to local members of the community. If you are on Facebook, please like the guild, so that we can get more exposure to those new to quilting or those looking to join.
