Unless otherwise noted, Zoom will open at 6:45pm with Programs beginning at 7pm.
We are almost done contracting with speakers for 2021 but still have openings for a speaker and class in October and a speaker for November. Soon we will be contacting speakers for the 2022 year. This is your guild and we would like to present speakers that would be of interest to you. Remember, they need to be able to present over zoom for this year and we anticipate that the beginning of next year may also be over zoom. If you have any ideas for the Program Committee please send us their name and contact information or if there is a topic of interest  we have resources to find speakers by topic.
Any ideas should be sent to: Rebecca Kramer  or Pat Gibbon

Sue’s lecture and trunk show highlights her quilts and their stories.

 www.sueshermanquilts.com 

Class:
Wild Animal Applique with Sue Sherman 
Class Fee:$30 plus cost of pattern. You may use your own fabric or purchase a Kit

May 22 (Part 1) and May 29(Part 2), 2021 from 9:00 to 12:00 on Zoom.
One $30 class fee enrolls you in both days.

May’s “Wild Animal Appliqué” workshop offers three different creative wild animal designs for you to choose from.

  •          Bashful Honu (30x22”)
  •          Turtle Encounter (22x 28”)
  •          Giraffes Duo (26x28”)

All these designs use a raw edge applique technique.

In the first day of this two-day class, you will learn how to make the quilt top using Sue Sherman’s jigsaw puzzle method of cutting and placing pieces. In between the first day and the second day, students will review the class videos and make specific changes as needed. On the second day, students will learn the quilting techniques to finish the quilts. 

Patterns and material kits can be purchased from Sue. A special price will be given to the guild if enough students sign up. People interested in taking this class, must sign up ASAP because of the amount of time it takes to ship materials from Canada.

For more information about this workshop and to view the patterns, please see her website  https://sueshermanquilts.com/  scroll down the home page to view the patterns available for this class. 

Contact Pat Gibbon to register ASAP or ask questions.

 Trunk Show via Zoom


Class “Blueberry Buckle” Quilt

June 19, 2021 9:00 to 12:00 p.m. on Zoom
Class Fee: $30 plus cost of Pattern and materials

June always reminds me of fresh fruits – and nothing is better, well at least in my opinion, than fresh blueberries! Learn how to make this blueberry buckle quilt in a half day class. This couch – size quilt (58x73”) looks totally different depending on the material you use. 

The pattern is available on Patti Laird’s Etsy store or by downloading a digital version from:  here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/788168640/blueberry-buckle-quilt-pattern-fast-easy  

Or, by purchasing a hard copy that Patti will mail you: https://www.etsy.com/listing/947850203/blueberry-buckle-quilt-pattern-fast-easy 

Students can use code WSQG2021 to get 10 percent off the pattern.
