Next meeting...
Thursday, June 9, 2022
Doors open at 6:30pm for socializing, program begins at 7:00pm.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Please be advised we will be meeting in person at the New Garden Friends Meeting.  Currently the church requires we wear masks during meeting and no food or beverages are allowed.

PROGRAM:  It is June. Put on some old clothes. We are going to object paint on fabric. We have the paint and brushes. You bring pieces of light colored fabric from your stash and any objects with an interesting shape. A jar lid, a piece of bubble wrap, part of a toy, Lego? , plastic fork. Be creative. A quilt with leaf printing is below. Time for something different. Remember you get to create a quilt with your pieces. See you then. Keren.


























*********************************************
NEW SPECIAL EVENT:  We will host a Sit and Sew at the Trotter Active Adult Center at 3906 Betula Street the day after our meeting each month from 12noon to 4pm for members of the Guild.  There is a large room with tables and chairs and wall outlets all around.  There will be an ironing board and iron available.  You can work on your own projects, charity quilts, hand work or machine work.  It's a great place to put tables together and pin baste larger quilts.  There are many members who are reluctant to come out at night for various reasons.  Our hope is that this will fill a need for people who want the companionship of other quilters in a daytime setting.  Of course, we'd love for you to do both!  
NEXT SIT & SEW:  June 10, 2022
*********************************************
If you have an idea of a project we can do or start in 60 to 90 minutes please contact Keren Rotberg.  With a few exceptions we will skip the "speaker format" so we can do things together. Please join us as we start a new year. 
***********************************************
There are still open BOARD MEMBER positions.  Check the "Contact Us" tab for a list. Please contact Gail Lott about serving in 2022 or if you have any questions.

"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!"
Dose of Good from WFDD listener Michelle Owens, Greensboro, NC
