"We're Enchanted With Quilting!"
Join your NMQA friends for Thursday's Zoom Sew-In! Come and go as you please. Bring your own project or something you're working on for the Guild.
Time: Every Thursday, 10 AM - 2 PM
See you there!
This is our first business meeting of the year. After the business part of the meeting, Ilene will give a presentation on the History of the Balloon Fiesta Quilts.
We'll have Show & Tell at the meeting! If you're attending in person, bring your item with you and if you're attending through zoom, send your photos to Kris Lange, email@example.com at least 48 hours before the meeting.
After the meeting (from noon to 3:00 PM), there will be a Workshop on how to make bargello balloons. Register under the separate event at www.NMQA.org
NMQA's first Workshop in 2022 will be held following the January Membership Meeting. There will be a $5.00 class fee to cover the cost of the fabric. If you return the completed balloon to the committee for use with the crafts, the $5.00 will be returned.
Bring your own lunch and eat while you listen to a short presentation on making bargello, appliqué and special shapes balloons for our 2023 Balloon Quilt and other crafts. After the presentation, you will learn the techniques for making bargello balloons, such as the one pictured below.
WHAT TO BRING:
At this evening meeting, Karen Armstrong will give a presentation and trunk show of Temperance Quilts.
We'll have Show & Tell at the meeting! If you're attending in person, bring your item with you and if you're attending through zoom, send your photos to Kris Lange, firstname.lastname@example.org at least 48 hours before the meeting
