One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

Helen Robinson Program - November 16

 

Helen Robinson of Mesa, AZ presented a lecture and trunk show entitled “Sew Kind of Wonderful.” Helen taught herself to quilt from from the Quilter’s Complete Guide by Fons and Porter in 1997 when she wanted to offer an after-school sewing class to Jr. High students and needed an affordable teacher.  The first quilt block Helen sewed was a Log Cabin Block, and she was hooked on the entire process!  Learn more about Helen and combining straight and curved pieces at her website.
