Next meeting: Thursday, June 8th
PROGRAM: Have you always wanted to paint a BARN QUILT BLOCK but been afraid to tackle a large piece of plywood? Then this is perfect for you! Lisa Martin, a Patrick County, Virginia, native and owner of The Wormy Chestnut, will be the guest speaker for our June 8 meeting. Lisa was instrumental in creating the Patrick County Barn Quilt Trail and has been hosting and teaching barn quilt classes for years. Besides talking about the history and nature of barn quilts, she will be bringing a mini patriotic barn quilt ornament project for the group to complete.
In addition, she will have 12" x 12" Barn Quilt Kits available for purchase for $30 each if anyone is interested. She'll be bringing a variety of popular designs and the kits contain the stenciled barn quilt, paints, brushes, and instructions for completion. These small kits are perfect to decorate a mailbox or house sign, to frame and show off in your house, or to adorn a porch or other outdoor setting. Please bring cash or a check to purchase any kits. *See photos on our MEETING-EVENTS page*
Lisa will also offer a BARN QUILT BLOCK workshop on Saturday, September 9th. The cost is $40 per person, but that includes everything - and she even brings extra cups so if someone doesn't finish, they can take them home. People can pay her the day of the class. *** The workshop will be from 9:30am to 12:30pm at the Trotter Active Adult Center (3906 Betula St, Greensboro). The room is available from 9am to 1pm only so be sure to be there set up and ready to go at 9:30 promptly. This workshop will take the place of our regular monthly meeting. Please let Betty Green or Michelle Owens know if you would be interested in attending this workshop or there will be a sign-up sheet at the June meeting. We must have at least 10 to 12 attendees for this workshop. You can also invite friends from other guilds or even your neighbor! We will open this workshop up to other guilds following our June meeting.

"DOSE OF GOOD" from WFDD on May 24, 2021
"Quilters love to quilt. We make bed quilts, throws, baby quilts, table runners, wall hangings, placemats and more. We make them for family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. When we’ve made something for everyone we know we make things for people we don’t know. The members of the Piedmont Quilters’ Guild in Greensboro NC have been making and donating quilts since 1980! We recently donated 22 quilts to Freedom House, a substance abuse recovery center for mothers and their children. They were so happy to receive this donation. The quilts will keep the mothers and children warm through the winter. We have already started on more quilts and look forward to donating again soon!"
