MVQG Mystery Dinner Theatre "Sold Out"

          If you didn't purchase your ticket early, you are out of luck. The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild production of "Shop Hop on the Paducah Star" is officially SOLD OUT!

          This is the guild's second dinner theatre presentation. The first play was presented in May 2017 as a fundraising effort  to supplement guild resources on a scale with the annual Quilt Show held in even numbered years and was a tremendous success. Rather than pay royalties for a commercially available play for this year, a group of guild members wrote their own mystery script with a quilting theme.  Following months of writing, casting, and rehearsals, cast and crew are ready for an audience.

          The play will be performed for one night only at the Fairborn United Methodist Church, 100 N. Broad St, at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, taking the place of the regular monthly meeting.

           In addition to enjoying a tasty meal and an exciting play, one member of the audience will also go home with a gorgeous quilt that was designed and constructed to be a significant part of the mystery.  Audience members are invited to put their names on the back their tickets and drop them in the appropriate container when entering the dinner theater. and some lucky person will go home with a gorgeous lap quilt. Additional chances the drawing, may be purchased for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00 at the entrance to the dinner theatre. You must be present to win.

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 250 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.
