Wednesday evening October 5, 2016: Syncopated Ribbons
Lecture/Trunk Show: Syncopated Ribbons
Beth Helfter is a quilt designer and instructor from Massachusetts who has been quilting for 20 years. Her work has been featured in Quilters World, The Quilter, Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Quilts From Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, and she was a member of the 2014 Quiltmaker “Scrap Squad.” Her style tends toward the scrappy and her designs mirror her company tagline: Inspired Designs, Relaxed Attitude. Quilting is supposed to be fun, and with every pattern she strives to keep you as far away from your seam ripper as possible, with every lecture she works to keep quilting light, fun, and motivating. Lecturing and teaching is still her very favorite part of this career and she can’t wait to meet us in Charlotte this October!
Wednesday evening November 2, 2016: Quilter's Gallery
Cindy Page and Patti Cline, from The Quilter’s Gallery, are very traditional quilters. They work with basic shapes like flying geese and nine patches to make scrap quilts, and use patterns and rulers from many sources. Some of the quilts are original; all can be reproduced by the average quilter.
Their Show and Tell at our Guild Meeting will focus on scrap quilts. They will discuss border treatments and ways to utilize and organize your stash. They will make available fabric packs, patterns and rulers, used in their quilts, for purchase.
