Play Quilt-O, Enjoy Show & Tell in August
     The August 14 guild meeting is the designed as a fun evening playing a little Quilt-O and sharing all the work of our members in an expanded Show & Tell. You are encouraged to bring your latest projects to share with the group.
To play Quilt-O, bring a dollar for the Quilt-O card (or $2 for 2 cards or more if you wish). Each time we play a round it will “cost” one fat quarter. The first player with "Quilt-O" gets the fat quarters for that round. If there is more than one winner, the fat quarters will be split. We will play up to four rounds and have ample time time for Show & Tell and be able to have that as our primary purpose.
Cake, lemonade, coffee and tea will be available for all.
Guild Meeting: Kimberly Einmo
      Our September 11 meeting will be a fantastic presentation by the internationally known quilter, Kimberly Einmo. She will also present a workshop on Wednesday at the Xenia Community Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Because of a great demand for spaces in her workshop we scheduled a second workshop on Thursday at the Knob Prairie United Church of Christ in Enon. Check the sign-up list at the August meeting to see which day you are signed up for. If you signed up early you will most likely be on Wednesday. If you signed up later and were on the waiting list, you will be in the Thursday workshop. HOWEVER, although we have lots of people signed up for these workshops, very few have paid. REMEMBER, we need to have the workshop fees paid at the August meeting or mailed to me by September 1 at:
Karen Sipos MVQG
7232McKenna Place
Englewood, Ohio 45322

      If anyone is not paid when the September guild meeting begins that place will be considered open and anyone wishing to go to the workshop after hearing Kimberly’s presentation may take that place.
October Guild Meeting: Rob Appell - Man Sewing
      We have a waiting list for Rob Appell’s Wednesday workshop and some interest from people outside of the Guild. Be sure to check the list at the August meeting. Fees will need to be paid by the September meeting.
      Also, in October the 2019 Guild Challenge will be announced and sign-up sheets will be available. Stay tuned!!!

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 (January - December) 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.
