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.
September 2016 Program – Thursday, September 15th at 7:00 pm
This month’s guest speaker is Jen Eskridge of ReannaLily Designs. Her lecture is called “If a Person Werta…” Jen has developed a quick and easy facing technique to prepare shapes for machine applique designs. The technique can be added to any shape, including hexagons and curves. You will leave this lecture entertained and motivated to use up your stash and create quick, interesting quilts. You can visit her Web site at: www.reannalilydesigns.com.
Don’t forget to bring:
Baby Items for community service
Mystery Quilt (whatever stage it is in)
We are saving quilt magazines for TAG next year
September is National Sewing month and our guild has been blessed with lots of wonderful fabric to make a wide variety of quilts. Just pick your favorite kid’s quilt pattern and come shop at Betty Matthews’ house. The fabric is free. There will also be quilt kits available at each meeting.
Community Service this month is baby items from diapers, onesies, socks or baby food.
