A Brief on Upcoming Programs for Spring 2018

2018 Guild Programs will kick-off with the second part of the 2017 Hoffman Challenge Quilt Trunks at the January meeting. Forty beautiful challenge quilts, including 5 ribbon winners, will be on display, similar to those shown during our October meeting.

Thread and embroidery – hand and machine – are the themes that will play out through the Spring Programs for our Guild.

In February, we will host Judy Moore Pullen from Marble Falls and our nearby Highland Lakes Quilt Guild. Judy will take us on a journey through wool applique and many of the interesting embroidery stitches that enhance this fabric art. There will indeed be a workshop, so plan ahead!.

March will blow in with Linda Bratten from Armstrong, MO – hopefully her plane ride won’t be bumpy! Linda is an accomplished thread painter who will present both a lecture and a fun-filled workshop using thread as an intense embellishment.

The flowers of April will be a colorful backdrop for the redwork embroidery of Rosie deLeon McCrady from Austin. Her lecture will focus on redwork, its history and evolution with a workshop where attendees will enhance their embroidery skills with a wonderful small redwork project.
