Beth Stanton - Confessions of a Quilt Class Addict
Making her first quilted item in an elementary school club around the time of the U.S. bicentennial, Beth Stanton has been quilting to some degree for about 40 years. Her interest in quilting became a passion (or maybe it's an obsession) after she joined her local quilt guild in 2003 where she began to see all the incredible possibilities. Beth Stanton will present the lecture, “Confessions of a Quilt Class Addict,” which features some of the quilts she has made in the many, many classes she has taken over the years. Each class has improved her skills and added to her quilting toolbox. She admits that she was lukewarm on some of the classes she signed up for, but now has an eclectic collection of quilts to share that illustrate a wide variety of methods and styles. In addition to class projects, Beth will include personal projects that grew out of those learned skills. She states that she is not married to a single style or technique; however, Beth really does like using Patt Blair's method for inking quilts. She loves paper piecing, too!
Prior to the meeting, please gather for camaraderie and to meet Beth Stanton at Camille’s Sidewalk Café, 44140 20th St. West, Lancaster. See you at 5:00 pm prior to the general meeting!

The workshop will be a Quilted Carry Bag taught by Corey Starkey from Bakersfield. The wallet class was canceled due to the teacher taking an unexpected job in Louisiana. She was willing to fly back for the class, but we felt it was an undue hardship on her to make that sacrifice. We’ll meet at Trinity Community Church, 45361 N. Trevor, Lancaster, CA.
Inspired by an article from "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" newsletter that Ilana Joffe shared with us. (See article at the end of this post.)
The Philanthropic Committee is challenging everyone to make a pillowcase from kids' print fabrics or bright and cheerful fabrics. The pillowcases will be collected at the September guild meeting (Thursday, September 14, 6:30 pm, at Lancaster United Methodist Church, 918 W Avenue J) and sent to Texas for distribution to Hurricane Harvey evacuees.
