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.


 

Barb Willis  Program: January 15, 2018

 

Barb Willis is a Prescott residence who has had her quilts all over Europe and Asia.  She is truly a International Instructor and lecturer.  She quilts and dyes a lot of silk, velvet and unusual fabrics for her  pieces. Barb discussed how she  creates the fabrics for her quilts.

Bar led a class after the January 15 meeting on dyeing a silk scarf.

February 19: Debbie Sullivan

In February we have from Minnesota, Debbie Sullivan.  She has such different quilts that she has designed, dyed  or created a background.  She was the  Featured Artist of the guild in Sun City West.  How amazing her work is.  And, all the way from Minnesota and we are so lucky she will be in the Phoenix area for 3-4 months.

 

March 19: Nancy Lee Chong

In March we have Nancy Lee Chong from Washington State.  She will be doing a program on her Hawaiian Quilting and a workshop the next day on the Hawaiian Quilting method.  I don't think we have had an instructor at the guild teaching the Hawaiian Method.  I hope to have the pattern decided and (maybe) an example by the general meeting.
