What is Going On Here?

 Yes, these are the wonderful women of IHQ.  Today they are taking a class. So, why are there no sewing machines, or fabrics around?

Quilters learn new techniques every year, from professional teachers and talented members.  Monday’s class is both professional & member taught. Our scheduled instructor, Terrie Kygar, fell ill and could not travel last year. Candy Gutierrez was taught by Terrie Kygar and became qualified to teach the technique.

The technique?  Crayon Applique. Ms. Kygar, and now our Candy, does a no-iron version called “Brush & Blend”.  I haven’t been able to take either class, but I have seen these breathtaking images created by everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aren’t they luscious with color?

 


Candy stands, supervising the coloring. I wonder if she ever taught Kindergarten?

 

Concentration and focus this class is commanding.  Not the usual banter or giggles are heard in the room.  Yet, each student I spoke with assured me they were having a lot of fun.  Some were even smiling as they colored – like Kindergarteners’ do.

Renewal of the Quiltesses

It’s January, so that means membership renewal starts today.  $40.00 and a completed form will renew your membership in our fabulous Quilt Guild.  If you have not joined yet…  what are you waiting for?

For y’all who doubt that Quiltesses is a word – it is.  According to The Book of Words that Should Exist, 5th Edition, this is the definition:

Quiltesses [‘kwilt-ess-es]  noun.   1. Members of a Quilt Guild  2. Goddesses of quilting.

I really like the second choice.

No photos today, due to my drive-by to register and go back home to jammies and a warm fire.  Maybe a nap if I can.

Gearing Up …

For the big show -> October 11-13!

Don’t be surprised if a quilter asks you to support a scholarship program by buying a raffle ticket. The quilt we are raffling off this year is designed by Lynn Wilder and worked on by Guild members, under Lynn’s expert tutelage of course!

Our energetic member, Dana, has been selling tickets for the quilt, and the American Girl Doll. We also raffle off the Doll, including a wardrobe of Haute Couture fashions.  No Kidding!

P.S. Last day to submit an application is Monday, September 9th
