The cost of the workshop is $15.00 and includes the book “15 Minutes of Play” by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. It is suggested that those taking the workshop bring their lunch so that we can begin as soon as possible. The workshop will be over by 4:00.

June 26 – Picnic at Goettel Park in Central Square – Bring a dish to pass, a place setting, a beverage and, optionally, a lawn chair. Directions to the Park appear below. There is a pavilion at the Park so light rain should not interfere with our picnic; however, if there is heavy rain we will hold the picnic at the church where we normally meet.
Note: If you have a favorite professional quilter who you would like to have come to our Guild and give a presentation and workshop, let me know. Also let me know if you have any suggestions for future programs. Some suggestions for demos include binding inside and outside curves, utility quilting, domestic machine quilting using rulers, easy gifts to make and machine qulting.
Directions to Goettel Park: If you were leaving the church, you would take a right and follow Rte 11 through Central Square. The park is a little bit past Rte 49 on the left hand side, across from Reymore Chevrolet.
From north of Central Square: Take rte 81 south to exit 32. Turn right onto 49, then right onto rte 11.

More and more Guild members are transitioning from traditional quilts to modern quilts. We are planning on having a few workshops in the future that appeal to both traditional and modern quilters. In October, Heather Kojan will be teaching a workshop on a quilt that can be made to look traditional or modern bases on your selection of fabrics.
