July 9 Meeting - Art of Appliqué

with Kathy K. Wylie

Appliqué quilts are among the most beautiful, jaw-dropping, crowd-pleasing and award-winning of all quilts. This lecture is all about appliqué. Do you marvel over beautiful appliquéd quilts and wonder how they were accomplished? You might be surprised at the number of techniques and methods that can be used to create these masterpieces. Kathy's lecture will give you some insight into the various types of appliqué along with stunning photographs and real-life examples. This will be a Zoom presentation at our Guild meeting, no recording, no broadcast.


In addition, Kathy will be teaching an appliqué class via Zoom on Thursday, July 8, and space is still available. Click here for complete information.

Dues Increase Proposal


From July 9 - July 30, we will be voting on a proposal to raise Guild dues to $50 beginning in 2022. On July 9 (next Guild meeting date), there will be a link at the top of this page to take you directly to your ballot. Please vote promptly. Thank you.
