Dear Fellow Quilters,
Hopefully everyone enjoyed the last of the warm weather. Cooler weather is on the way and with that, for me anyway, there is more time for sewing.
There was a survey conducted last year in which a report was compiled and recently delivered to the Board. The members of that committee, Anne Wilson, Joan Mosley, Ruth Bertaccini, Mary Serpa, Jean Pincha-Tully, Marjorie McConnell, and Barbara Ceresa. They did a tremendous amount of work and research on some of the activities suggested in the survey. The one major outcome of the survey was that Guild members overwhelming want a quilt show every year. There were a lot of comments related to the quilt show operations and general guild operations. The comments on the quilt show will be reviewed by that chair. There is now a committee in place to go over the comments on the general guild operations and make recommendations to the board for changes. More to
The speaker for October is Sandra Mollon. She does beautiful hand applique. Please join us at the meeting to hear her speak and sign up to attend her workshop the next day. Her workshop promises to be lots of fun.

October Workshop: Appliqué Landscapes
Sandra Mollon, our October speaker, considers herself a quilt maker, textile artist and teacher. She has enjoyed all forms of this art since 1987, but believes her specialty is hand appliqué. She will be holding a "Speaker Workshop" on Wednesday, October 5 from 10:00-4:00. Here is a chance to create one’s own fabric landscape from a personal photo or one provided by the instructor. The sewing and assembly is very easy. Hand dyed fabric appropriate for sky, water, and land can be purchased on the day of the workshop. Spaces are still available, contact Margaret Vodka to save a space.
Email Margaret Vodicka (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know you are
interested. The cost is only $30 (nonmembers $40).
Workshop: This is a class for students who love the artistic look of a landscape painting, and wouldlike to make one from fabric. Students can choose to bring in a photograph or drawingand make their own original art, or use a pattern provided by Sandra at the workshop.Learn to go from a photograph to a line drawing, and then to fabric. Hand appliquéd.This is a single day workshop.
Be sure to visit Sandra’s website http://sandramollonquilts.com. She has some wonderful pieces of work in her gallery on the site. Her workshop will be on hand appliquéing landscapes. She leads retreats at Zephyr Cove in Lake Tahoe.
The Pixeladies program in November is a Trunk show of some of their amazing quilts and then some time "wrapping" (the holiday season is coming). They will be doing a fun thing with us from their Furoshiki Fabric Wraps book (will also be available to buy). Please bring a 42”x42” piece of fabric for some wrapping fun! The Pixeladies are Kris Sazaki and Deb Cashott. They are such a delight and so much fun.
The Pixeladies are artists who tell stories in cloth. When they're not creating art, they teach courses on Adobe Photoshop Elements for fiber artists and sewing enthusiasts. There will be no workshop in November.
