Guild Meeting - Thursday, June 14th - Patsy Thompson: Thread Power

Patsy Thompson

Patsy Thompson first learned to sew in a six-week sewing course at the local Singer store, and she's been hooked ever since! Patsy was a hand quilter for her first 25-plus years in quilting and struggled to learn the art of free motion machine quilting. It wasn't easy! Her work has been exhibited in quilt shows and juried exhibitions across the United States, including the American Quilter's Society show in Paducah, Kentucky.

Patsy says of the Free Motion Quilting workshop, "This class is geared to creating a good foundation of free motion skills that will serve you well as you continue practicing and move on toward more challenging designs. Let me help take the fear out of free motion quilting so you can discover the fun of it." For all the details and the supply list, see the Programs page.


Upcoming Guild Activities

  • July 12th Guild Meeting – The big reveal of our Ugly Fabric Swap Challenge. At the January Guild meeting, 24 Guild members swapped almost 300 Ugly Fabric squares. As expected, the most overheard comment was, "But, I like this fabric." Thank you all for participating, and now for the challenge: You can make any quilted item you want to make, but check out the details, available on the Challenge page...
  • August 10th–11th – QUILT PLANO (how fast will this be here, right?)
