2018 NMQA State Fair Challenge Quilt Contest

The fabrics have been chosen for the 2018 NMQA State Fair Challenge Quilt Contest. There are 3 colors of the same fabric pattern this year. Come see what they are and choose your favorite! The fat-quarter of fabric is $3. The quilt must be your own design and you must do all of the work including quilting. Of course, you can get input from your friends and you can be inspired by other sources. The quilts will be due at the August 27 meeting. You will get a sheet with all of the details when you purchase your fabric.

See you at the monthly meeting! Please bring $3 to the meeting, either cash or a check made out to NMQA.

Greetings to all Albuquerque fiber art guild presidents!

The Albuquerque Chapter of the American Sewing Guild is hosting a very special program about the travelling exhibit of the clothing of Georgia O’Keefe.  (Who knew that this great artist also fashioned most of her own clothing?!? That might explain her unusual style!)  Carolyn Kastner, PhD of Santa Fe, the recently retired curator of the exhibit, will be providing the lecture and slide show.   The program will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 10th in the classroom in Hip Stitch, 2320 Wisconsin NE.  There is a $5 fee for non-ASG members at the door, but well worth the price of entry!  Extra parking may be had across the street in the small office park; those businesses are closed in the evening.  Get to Hip Stitch early, shop and get a seat for the program!

Please pass this invitation along to all over your members, as we think the program should be appealing across all our fiber disciplines!  We hope to see a lot of our fellow fiber artists and fashionistas at the program!
