September 2021 to June 2022
At our January meeting, we will hold a Garage Sale, and have 15 tables available. Sign-up began at the November meeting. Contact Roxane to reserve a table.
Our December meeting will feature Carola Russell as our vendor and our speaker. Carola’s presentation is titled ‘My favourite things: Tops, Tricks and Techniques for Quilters’. She will share a trunk show of ideas to inspire quilters to create and enjoy the art of stitch.
Catherine Nicholls, from Gibsons, BC, is our guest speaker for November. She works through painting, drawing and collage in sketchbooks, working on paper and fabric with discharge, dyeing, drawing, painting and printing. Textiles are then densely quilted either by hand or machine or both. Catherine has exhibited in North America and Europe. Amann Mettler thread sponsors Catherine’s work and various pieces tour Europe on an ongoing basis.
Alexis Schmidt, a Port Alberni bag designer, gave a presentation on her journey to creating Oro Rosa Patterns. She brought many beautiful bags to show our members.
In a live virtual event, an All-Star cast of 18 quilt teachers demonstrated some of their favorite quilting techniques over two different days. It was a showcase of a wide variety of styles and techniques, from traditional to modern and art quitting techniques with something to please everyone!
Kismet Quilts was the merchant at our September meeting. The Kismet crew presented an entertaining program in the form of an auction (‘money’ supplied) with great prizes.
