Rob Appell To Present at MVQG Meeting

       Rob Appell, described on schmetzneedles.com, as one of the hottest tickets in the sewing and quilting world, will be the presenter for the October 9 Miami Valley Quilters' Guild meeting.  The Guild meets the second Tuesday each month at the Fairborn Senior Center, 325 North Third Street, Fairborn. Guild meetings are open to the public.  There is a $10 speaker fee for non-members at the October meeting. 
      A textile artist and designer with nearly twenty years in the sewing and quilting business, Appell first worked in his mother's quilt shop, The Cotton Ball in Morro Bay, California.  Today he designs quilts for Michael Miller Fabrics and has published original quilt patterns, created quilting rulers and tools, and is author of several books.
      Appell's blog, ManQuilting.com, covers a multitude of sewing and non-sewing topics and tutorials. Every Monday his Man Quilting YouTube channel, now in its second year, presents a new quilt pattern tutorial produced in conjunction with the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
A workshop scheduled in conjunction with Appell's presentation is completely filled.

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.
