First let me give a big "Thank You!" shout-out to the 23 modern quilters who joined us yesterday for the lecture and trunk show presented by Faith Jones. Look for a post here later this week that will provide minutes from our meeting as well as some great photos of both Faith's quilts and our own members' show-and-tell quilts.
And now here is a listing of some upcoming area quilt shows and events to help you get your quilting groove on...
July 19-21 (this weekend!) Batavia's "Threads from Past to Present" Quilt and Textile Show featuring 150 historic and contemporary quilts, vendors, and hourly quilt demos. Details here.
July 5-28 the Northwest Area Arts Council Fine Fiber Show at the Old Court House Arts Center in Woodstock. One of our members, Barb Freeman, has a handbag on display in this show! Details here.
September 5-7 Madison, Wisconsin Quilt Expo. It's a biggie! Details here.
September 14-15 Faithful Circle Quilters Guild "Seasons of Color" show in Woodridge features over 350 display quilts, a merchant mall, quilt appraisals and more. Details here.
September 20-21 Northwest Suburban Quilt Guild "Our Quilts in Bloom" show in Hoffman Estates. 300+ quilt entries and expanded Vendor Mall. Details here.
Put these dates on your calendar and get out there and see some beautiful quilts!!
