Like everything else in our lives these days, our programs schedule has changed.
Our new lineup has been influenced by previous speakers not being able to travel, and by trying to make the transition to virtual as easy as possible for our members.
We plan on virtual meetings at least through June 2021.
Programs are a member benefit. All programs start at 7pm

Japans Quilt History: The Story of an American Import
The three-layered quilt was imported from America to Japan. It was quickly adopted and adapted to become a favorite pastime for an estimated three million quilters in Japan today. By the 1990s, Japanese quilt makers were world renowned for their traditional had-pieced and hand-quilted quilts. As part of the fascinating journey of Japan from quilt importer to quilt trailblazer, Teresa will take us inside the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, the largest attended quilt event in the world!

Looking Great, Dresden Plate
Did you know that the Dresden Plate block pattern is 100 years old? She looks pretty good for a mature woman. In this presentation, I go over the history of Dresden's and other patterns that became popular about the same time. Even back then, there was controversy in the quilting world on a national level. We will see how things have changed and how they are still very similar.
