QUILT RETREAT – Back by popular demand, we are having another quilt retreat. We will check in on July 27th at 11:00 a.m. and check out on the 29th at 10:00 a.m. The cost will be $120 per person. We will be going to Place of Grace Quilt Retreat in Clarkrange, TN. (between Jamestown and Crossville). There are five rooms available – 1 has 2 beds and the other 4 have 4 beds. That means there is room for 18 people. Each room has its own bathroom. There is a large kitchen and sewing area. There is also a seating area for our hand quilters. Our last retreat was lots of fun. I hope you can join us this time. There will be a sign-up sheet on the workshop table. We are asking for a $50 deposit. On the sign-up sheet, you will sign up by the room you would like to be in.

At the Quilters Roadshow, volunteers (SMQ members and others) spend time piecing quilt tops for Ronald McDonald House quilts while experts share their knowledge of the history of quilts the public brings to the roadshow. The Quilters Roadshow is held at the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Townsend, TN (http://www.gsmheritagecenter.org/).
The Quilters Roadshow has been moved from November 4, 2017 to October 28th. Hours are 10am-4pm. The usual potluck will be shared with all QRS volunteers. Please consider volunteering this year. Merikay Waldvogel, Becky Harriss, Jean Lester, Cindy Stuart and Jan Waas will be there to provide quilt knowledge, stories and fabric dating for anyone that brings in their quilts. Bring one of yours to share.
October 3, the guild will have the Fiber on a Whim. Speakers for the evening will give a class during the afternoon at the Messiah Lutheran Church from 2:00-5:00. The class is titled “Landscape Painting with Fabric”.
Step out of your comfort zone in this workshop where you will create a small scale landscape. When working in such a small size it is import to maintain the appropriate scale, as well as using “values” to create a sense of depth visually in the landscape. View your “stash” with new eyes wrong sides of fabric, fussy cutting to create nature’s elements or even using “bitz” of fancies to give shine or shadow. Your finished art can simply be framed like a painted landscape or sashed into a quilt.
This class will be taught by the ladies of Fiber on a Whim who will also be presenting our program at the meeting after class.
3 hour class
$30 class fee + $15 kit fee
