February 13 Guild Meeting

Knoxville's Merikay Waldvogel will be joining us to share details of her trip to "The Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival."  To describe this show as "large" is an understatement -- it's held in the Tokyo Dome baseball stadium! For the last 3 years, Merikay has been the only American invited to judge this show along with a panel of six Japanese judges. Most of the quilts were submitted by Japanese quilters and the workmanship is impressive.  Can't wait to see and hear all about Merikay's adventure!

Also at our February meeting:

* LAST CHANCE to pay your 2015 dues. Bring a $25

  check made out to Village Quilters.

* Pick up a Village Quilters 2015 calendar for $10. It

  is filled with pics of winning quilts from our show.

* Sign up for the bus trip to Paducah.

* Sign up at the Block Exchange table for the next Fabric

  Exchange of 7" square jewel-tone batiks, due at the

  March meeting.  See sample, below.
