Welcome to the Allen Quilters’ Guild!

Calling all quilters in the Allen area, join us for monthly programs, great friendships and all the creativity you can stand. AQG meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Allen, 605 South Greenville Avenue in Allen MAP IT.

June 2017 Meeting- Thursday, June 15th at 7:00 pm (socializing at 6:30)

Programs:

Our speaker for the June 15 meeting is MJ Fielek. MJ lives in McKinney, Texas and has been sewing and quilting for over 40 years. Her natural talent for selecting color combinations and her attention to detail are reflected in her many quilts. During the sixties she lived in Taiwan, where her already keen eye for fabric quality, color and design were sharpened.

MJ teaches beginners classes, a tips and techniques class, binding and advanced classes such as Double Wedding Ring, Feathered Star and Lone Star. Her binding classes have become the class to take. She teaches two color binding, stuffed binding and how to make perfect corners on all your quilts.

At our June meeting, MJ will talk about My Quilt Journey. She will present examples of her earliest quilts to more recent efforts. She will discuss early attempts and her progressive development in color and design of her quilts.

Community Service Items for June meeting:
Betty will have kits available if you would like to pick one up. This month the shelter could use few extra snack goodies (such as soups, cereals, tuna, mac and cheese, peanut butter) for our school kids at home.
