It’s time to update those quilting skills in mini classes taught by fellow guild members. Several people made a special request for these classes. Generous guild members have offered to share their expertise with you.Our quilt judge for the quilt show commended Sue Jacobsen’s binding application, so Sue will teach Applying Binding to Your Quilt. Ilana Jaffe showed a friendship group the method of Disappearing Pinwheels. It looked like so much fun that she agreed to teach it as well. Karen Stenback was thrilled with a class she took at Road 2 California learning to paint quilts with InkTense Ink Pencils and has consented to share her knowledge with us. Foundation Paper Piecing is a skill that many of us
(myself, especially) need reviewed frequently and Marietta Irvin volunteered to teach it. Lois Johnson’s technique for Embellished Silk Flower Wall Hangings has won numerous awards at quilt shows. We’re lucky enough to have her show us this technique. 

In lieu of a workshop, Philanthropic/Open Sew will be held at Trinity Community Church, 45361 N. Trevor, Lancaster -- from 9:00 am to ~3:00pm on Saturday, November 11. The philanthropic sew will be free, and we’re asking a $10 donation if you’re participating in open sew (not philanthropic) to defray the cost for the use of the facility. 

Meet for camaraderie with your fellow quilters at Cali Café, formerly Camille’s, at 44140 20th St. West, Lancaster. See you at 5:00 pm prior to the general meeting onNov. 9th. We hope to see you there!
