In keeping with our purpose to promote and advance quilting through the education of our members and the public, AQG offers programs through the monthly meetings, Friendship Groups, and workshops. Non-members are welcome to attend. AQG meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. (6:30 for fellowship) at First Presbyterian Church of Allen, 605 South Greenville Avenue in Allen. (See map below.)
Join us in 2017 as we work on a collaborative project. Each participant will receive a pattern of a small dress based on a template by Sindy Rodenmayer. Use your imagination and embellish to your heart’s delight. Only requirement is that the dress should be red and placed on a white or offwhite background (9″ by 13″). Next February we will assemble the blocks in honor of American Heart Month, supporting healthy habits for a healthy heart. Pattern available here: http://www.fatcatpatterns.com/freepatterns/fcp_RedDress.pdf. Thank you Sindy (fatcatpatterns.com) for sharing your pattern with us!
2017 Block of the Month
Our Ways and Means chair, Kathy Scott, has put together a Block of the Month project. For only $5 per block, you will receive fabric and instructions and by the end of the year, you will have an entire quilt! Cathy promises the patterns will be fun – first block was distributed in January “Square in a Square.” Colors will coordinate (red, black and white).
This Fall, September 23,24,25 we are going to The Best Little Retreat Center in Texas down in Richardson/Dallas border. Come for one, two, or all three days. It is going to be about $15 per day, from 9am to 9pm ( yes you get to sleep in your own bed) depending on how many days you sign up for. If you sign up, and something happens to where you cannot come, you can redeem your time later( Our guild just wont be there then…) Meals are on our own, but there are many restaurants around or you can bring your own. You leave all your sewing stuff, and it is locked up overnight – safe and secure. Sign up will be online at www.BestLittleRetreatCenterInTexas.com.
Come When You Can, Leave When You Must. Conveniently located on the Northwest side of Coit and Beltline, we wanted to create a one of a kind retreat getaway for all …
Next Spring, April 26-29, 2018, Thurs thru Sunday, We will be back at Sunset near Decatur. It is the last weekend in April. I will start taking deposit for this one in August.
Mark your calendars and start saving your pennies!
