2018-2019 Membership Application
Taken from Pam’s website, https://www.mamapquilts.com/: “I have had an interest in sewing since I was 10 years old. I fell into quilting after it no longer became lucrative for me to make clothes for my children or myself. Traditional piecing was my comfort zone, but then I branched out into traditional cotton appliqué, then appliquéing with wool and enhancing it with embroidery stitches. I also love exploring art with pictorial quilts. My newest ventures are designing my first two quilt patterns, called “Red, White, and Bloom” and “Texas Strong.” I am currently teaching a Beginning Quilting Class at Saddleback College for Community Education in Mission Viejo, CA.
I have been fortunate to win multiple awards in our local quilt guild shows, Road to California, Nashville AQS, Grand Rapids AQS, and Paducah. My quilts have been exhibited in Houston International Quilt Show, with one being a red and white quilt that was part of the "Ruby Jubilee" Quilt Exhibit at Houston 2014 and traveled for more than a year to different venues. Two of my quilts have been published in "Quilters Newsletter," "Quilt Mania," and American Quilter Magazine.”


Pam’s workshop will be the Whimsey Wedge pillow, or you can do a table runner. It’s a really fun take on the Dresden Plate pattern. Contact Coral Brown or Kathy Green to assure your place in the class. The workshop will be at our new location at 44101 15th Street West, fourth floor, conference room 15. The building is property of and adjacent to the Antelope Valley Hospital. Class will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Prior to the general meeting, come join us for Meet the Teacher at Cali Café at 44140 20th Street West, Lancaster. See you there at 5:00 p.m.!​
