March 10 Guild Meeting

It has been said many times, if you hear laughter coming from a room, there is a good chance Charlotte is in there. Charlotte is known for humor, her way with color and fabric, her pre-cut kits, and now a new book, Surprise Yourself! She believes her hobby is quilt making and her job is teaching others to enjoy it as much as she does.She has been teaching nationally and internationally since 1991 and now lives in the Lafayette, LA area, moving there in 2016.


Guild Presentation: Your Stash, My Stash
Charlotte’s love of fabric has created the need for her to make more and more quilts. Using simple ideas and patterns, her stash has kept her busy for years.  And she keeps buying more fabric! Sound familiar? Learn how to use your stash to maximize your joy of quilt making.

Community Service at its BEST!
On Monday, December 5th, the Quilting Room at The Chota Rec Center was bustling with 43 quilters putting together quilts for the Gatlinburg fire victims. When the day ended, 60 quilts were ready to be delivered to a quilters group that is gathering quilts, afghans, and hand crafted blankets for distribution.  See picture below.
On Friday, December 9, when the Village Quilters guild met, more quilts were collected from the membership and some of those quilts went to Athens for victims of the tornado. 

This year Village Quilters have donated more than 400 quilts to charitable groups in the Loudon and Monroe counties.
