Award-winning Hand Quilter To Present Program

     Tim Lattimer, an award-winning hand quilter, will present his lecture/trunk show "Time Span Quilts: UFO to Heirloom" at the July 10 MVQG meeting. The program consists of a power point presentation showing the stages of work on various antique tops from start to finish, including repairs as needed, washing, batting, hand quilting, and finishing, followed by showing the actual finished quilt.

      Lattimer collects vintage and antique quilt tops and finishes them with his award-winning hand quilting. His goal is to preserve the fine art of hand quilting. He started quilting in "about 2006." He has had numerous quilts accepted for American Quilter's Society shows and for the show, “Male Call” at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. His "Tree of Life" quilt won the Best Hand Workmanship award in 2013 AQS show in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

      Visitors are welcome to MVQG meetings, but there is a $10 speaker fee for the July meeting. Additional parking will be available on North Third Street in the areas around the "No Parking" signs which are covered with white bags. Parking is not permitted in the driveway at the front of the Senior Center or in the parking lot at the adjacent apartment building.

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.
