Monthly meetings offer: Activities:    block    of    the    month,    fat    quarter    drawing, Comfort Quilt, opportunity to sign up for workshops. A large lending library.  Show and Tell Program,   usually   with   a   special   speaker   who   shares quilting    wisdom,    tips,    a    trunk    show,    and/or    quilting inspiration.  Sometimes after meeting mini-workshops. The     club,     located     in     Rochester,     NY,     meets     monthly September    through    June    and    draws    members    from    the Finger   Lakes   region   and   even   as   far   away   as   Buffalo,   NY.      The membership   represents   a   wide   range   of   quilting   skills   from beginner    to    advanced,    all    types    of    quilting    and    interests, including   traditional,   contemporary,   modern   and   art,   both hand    and    machine    quilting.        Because    of    the    diversity    of quilting   interests,   Show   and   Tell   and   the   parade   of   Comfort Quilts   (turned   in   for   donation)   are   always   a   delight   and   an inspiration.         Although   a   few   of   the   members   have   been recognized     in     prestigious     juried     national     quilt     shows, members   enjoy   learning   and   sharing   their   love   of   quilting together.

April Program Highlights Linda    Poole    presented    a    delightful    program    at    the    club meeting    with    her    “Quilted    Journey    Around    the    World”    talk.      Her   workshop   students   absolutely   loved   the   time   she   spent with   them   as   she   taught   about   using   Inktense   pencils   and   inks to   creatively   design   single   pieces   to   use   as   applique.      One student   commented,   “I   was   definitely   out   of   my   comfort   zone as   I   have   never   possessed   any   skills   in   using   paint   in   any   form.     I     was     pleasantly     surprised     how     easy     and     relaxing     her technique was and thoroughly enjoyed the day.”
