The class, led by Anne Hall, will be using the Quiltworx Desert Sky paper piecing pattern. It can be made with either a light or dark background. The workshop fee will be $60.00. In addition, each student will be required to purchase a pattern at approximately $30.00 each ($26.00 + tax). The quilt will be 44” x 54” (can be extended with purchase of expansion packs at approximately $16.00 + tax). Kits (which will include the pattern) can be ordered for $155 + tax).

The deadline for registration for the Ann Hall workshop will be at the June meeting, Tuesday June 11.  This is necessary because of time needed to order the patterns and/or cut and make up the kits.

Got UFOs, (unfinished objects), this is the class for you. Have the problem that halted your project and made it a UFO, solved, so that you can complete the project or just come to sew with your Tribe for a convivial day.  I have been quilting since the 70s and am an avid collector of quilting knowledge, have studied the principles of design with various prominent art quilters and am a beta tester for Electric Quilt, (quilting software program). I will bring all these skills and tools to help you solve the problem that stopped your project that consigned it to the UFO heap.


Improv is one FUN approach to quilting.  Join me for this fast paced workshop that will have you using up scraps in a hurry.  If you prefer a more planned approach – pre-select  your colour scheme. Create your own original Improv art work or you may prefer to make a small quilt.  Included in the workshop are fun scraps to share!

As part of the Guild’s mandate for education, it has traditionally held Workshop Saturdays in the fall and the spring as a benefit to the members.  These sessions are subsidized by the guild and are a way for members to get together, to learn something new and to have fun. For new members it is a way to become acquainted with fellow members. Spring Fling and Fall Frolic are usually held at the Salvation Army Citadel.
