Coming Attractions

So far, 2008 has been good to us, and the Museum Quilt Guild is expecting the rest of the year to only get better!

Several workshops are already on the schedule, with several more in the planning stages. The after meeting "sit and sew" may never have another opportunity to gather!

In March, one of our members, Martha Lorshbaugh, will be teaching members to make fabric postcards! Several members have been showing off postcards they have made and or received in online swaps, which has generated enthusiasm for this class. (See some of Martha's postcards !)

In April, we are pleased to host Joan Ford, with her "Scrap Therapy" lecture. A class will follow, where members can learn how to cut, sort and organize scraps for future projects.

In June, members of the Museum Quilt Guild will be taking a road trip!! A bus has been reserved to transport interested members to "Quilter's Holiday 2008" hosted by the Quilters Consortium of New York State. The trip, on June 14, will cost members $125.00 and includes admission to the show, a lunch with speaker Kaye England, and dinner with speaker Ami Simms. Two locations have been arranged to meet the bus- at the Valu Plaza in Batavia and the Park and Ride in LeRoy. Contact Elaine Ross at elainejr@rochester.rr.com for more information, or to sign up and arrange payment. Reservations must be made before March 31, 2008.

Other upcoming workshops include a wool felt project and a fun dimensional applique class! Check back later for details!

Great job, Martha!!-)

Thank you for setting this up. I didn't get to see the Challenge quilts, so it's nice to see the ones you posted.

Martha, You did a nice job setting up this site. I didn't see all of the challenge quilts either so it was nice to be able to view them online. It is very organized and user-friendly.
