Laura Sutthoff- “Surrounding Yourself with Inspiration and Creativity"
Laura will help us discover our happy, inspirational moments by sharing with us where she finds her inspiration for designs and color. She’ll give us a glimpse of her creative space which helps her develop ideas for her artwork and give us tips on setting up our own creative spaces to optimize our inspiration. She’ll teach us how to organize our ideas so they are accessible, without having to dig them out of our closet or retrieve photos and/or notes years later on an old camera or computer.
Wednesday evening May 3, 2017:
Mark Sherman - “Man Quilter”
Join Mark for this hilarious look at what it’s like to be a man quilter. He will take you to guild meetings, quilt shops and more where it’s only him surrounded by hundreds of wonderful lady quilters. Mark discusses how he started quilting, what quilts he’s currently working on and where he’s going with all of his art in the future. This lecture includes showing you actual quilts (no slides) that he has made. And Mark promises you will have more fun than a barrel of “quilters.”
Join us in our love of quilting! We have much to offer you through our monthly programs, local and national quilt instructors and lecturers, monthly QuiltLine members only newsletter, social evenings, small quilt bees and multiple community outreach projects. All of these programs are planned by our members who volunteer their time on our various committees. We look forward to your joining us and becoming an active and supporting member!
Our Outreach projects supply hundreds of "Cuddle" quilts each year for infants and children at a local hospital, "Comfort" quilts for female cancer patients, and "Quilts for Soldiers" to the Veteran's Hospice Center as well as returning veterans through the USO of North Carolina, Charlotte-Douglass International Airport Center.
