Have you been looking for a quilt guild to join? Check us out!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday May 16th. Our program will be Color Theory by Rebecca Lidstrom.  "Selecting fabrics for a quilt can be a challenge for many quilters. Understanding the color wheel and how colors relate to one another provides a starting point to help us choose color palettes that work nicely together to create beautiful quilts. In this lecture, Rebecca will give build a color wheel and share tips on how you can use this and other tools to help build your confidence in color." 

She will have items to sell including her full line of quilt patterns, a few quilt kits of her best sellers, and some fabric bundles. She is able to take cash, check, or credit card for payment.

Come join us!
