JANUARY
Tuesday 01/12 Community Quilts

Community Quilts chair Becky Siva brought loads of fabric from the Guild's 'stash' and the more than 70 members and guests who attended spent the evening cutting out and packaging quilt kits for members to sew in the coming weeks. Kits will be available at each meeting and members can piece tops and quilt and bind them, if they choose. The growing number of members with new long-arm quilting machines is a boon for Community Quilts as members volunteer to quilt completed tops as they are learning or expanding their knowledge and skill.

For information on kits or finishing quilts, contact Becky.

Tuesday 07/09 Program Fundraiser: Quarter Auction

The July meeting featured a Quarter Auction for items donated by Guild members.  Here's how it works: Purchase one or more paddles for $1 at the beginning of the meeting.  Everything will be auctioned off $1 or less.  Each person bidding the item pays that amount and paddle numbers will be drawn to see which of the bidders gets that item.

     The Guild also has received the donation of a Singer Treadle Sewing Machine.  A Silent Auction for the item will be started at the July meeting.

An Ohio Quilt Guild for Quilters and Fabric Artists in Dayton and Southwest Ohio

Miami Valley Quilters' Guild

 

          The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild is more than just a club, we are a diverse group with more than 200 members from all areas of interest and all quilting skill levels. Members include quilters, collectors of quilts, quilting teachers, designers and those simply interested in the art and craft of quilting. Our members come from throughout the Miami Valley Region of Southwest Ohio – the Dayton/Springfield Metro area including suburbs and communities such as Huber Heights, Englewood, Tipp City, Vandalia, Kettering, Oakwood, Beavercreek, Xenia, Fairborn, and Yellow Springs in Montgomery, Clark, Greene, and Preble counties and beyond. Our members have varied interests: traditional quilts and fabric art - hand piecing and machine work - long-arm machine quilting, home machine quilting and, of course, hand quilting. 

           As do other quilt guilds, clubs, and groups in Ohio, the Miami Valley Quilters' Guild  provides quilters with education and instruction through classes and workshops; inspiration and growth through meetings featuring accomplished quilters, quilt designers, and quilting teachers; fellowship and support through meetings, retreats, shows, programs, our newsletter, and our website; and encouragement and recognition  through quilt shows, show-and-tell sessions, challenges, charitable activities, and other events. We join other Ohio quilt guilds in promoting the history and tradition of quilting and embrace all quilting techniques, styles, and methods. 

         The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild proudly presents recent examples of quilting by its members in a biennial quilt show.  One of the best quilt shows in Ohio, the show is held in May even-numbered years at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia. 

          We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at the Fairborn Senior Center, 325 North Third Street, Fairborn, Ohio.  Annual dues of $20 includes attendance at meetings, access to our monthly newsletter, electronic services through our website and e-mail lists, reduced fees for classes and workshops, library privileges, eligibility for our annual retreat, exhibiting your quilts in our biennial membership shows, and much more, particularly the fellowship of fellow quilters. Visitors are welcome to attend meetings.  There is a $10.00 fee for non-members at programs featuring professional speakers.
