Learn something new!

From time to time there has been interest among guild members to explore various ideas in quilting.  The Education Committee is continually working to see what new interests are out there.  Below is a list of the new groups that are in the process of forming.  Details of the group's focus and meeting times will be added as they become available.

The Mona Lisas (formerly Art Quilts) meets on the second Tuesday of each month.  The next meeting will be September 11 after Show and Tell at the morning gathering.  Please bring a lunch.  Vicki Barlean is going to do a demonstration on using colored pencils on fabric, so bring a piece of fabric and join the fun!  The group will also discuss new techniques they are interested in learning, and set specific techniques to be demonstrated during upcoming meetings.  If you have a technique you would like to share, or a technique you are interested in learning - please bring that information.

A project for the Quilt Show was decided on at the August meeting.  "Black Hills or Bust!" will be a display of things to see and do in the Black Hills.  Each quilt will be individual, but will have a road through the quilt that will match up with the other quilts.  A specified size will be decided on next month, as well as other details for the project.  If you would like to take part in the project, please plan to attend the meeting or email us through the "Contact Us" page.    

Creative Stitchers (formerly the Wool Applique' group) will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month after announcements and Show and Tell at the Tuesday morning gathering.      

Modern Quilts and EQ meet on an irregular basis.  If you have any questions, please contact Carol (Go to "About Us", then "Contact Us")"  

Machine Embroidery is an open meeting to discuss embroidery problems and offer hints and suggestions (no need to bring your machine: laptops are optional).  The group meets after the Tuesday morning gathering on the 4th Tuesday of the month.
