April 14 Guild Meeting

Suzanne taught herself to quilt from a library book in the late 70’s because her four children needed covers on their beds. Suzanne has chosen to make her quilts by hand, a process that she finds meditative using her own techniques. For example, she quilts without a frame or a hoop.


Guild Presentation: The Evolution of a Quilt Maker
For her guild presentation, Suzanne will take us on an adventure as she shares her evolution as a quilt maker and her triumphs and frustrations with quilt contests.

Quilts of Valor


In early March, Leslie Phillips, Rita Hollenbacher, and Linda Arbuckle had the honor or representing the guild at the Tellico Lake American Legion.  The Legion Post presented a check to us for the Quilts of Valor.  Our reps were touched to hear a few of their members tell the importance of quilts they have previously received.
