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.

May Program Recap Thank   you   to   Tina   Somerset   for   her   inspiring   program   and   trunk   show,   Color   and   Design:   My   Journey,   where   we   discovered   another   color   wheel   with   24   color   families,   each   filled   with   light,   medium,   and dark   values.      Tina’s   presentation,   supported   by   her   beautiful   quilts,   has   given   quilters   other   ways   to look at the quilt design process and ideas on how to select colors that work well together.
