March 2016 Guild Meeting

Barbara Pershing and Mary Hoover from Fouth & Sixth Designs helped take the fear out of sewing curves with their discussion of using templates and just 2 pins to make Drunkard’s Path quilts. Their presentation included a trunk show of their curved-pieced quilts. Not to be outdone, guild members also presented a ‘truck show’ of their own fabulous quilts.

February 2016 Guild Meeting – Annual Tie-In for Kids

The February Guild Meeting was our annual Tie-In for Northern Rivers Kids. The Tie-In began at 4:00 so we could get an early start on tying quilts. Those members who were able to come early enjoyed salad and pizza. After a short business meeting, the tying continued throughout the evening. There was no show & tell at this meeting.

A special thank you goes out to Gloversville Sewing Center, who graciously donates the battings for these quilts each year.
