Guild Prepares for More Great Quilting in 2019

            Our 2019 officers were  elected at the December meeting.  Amanda Bame, President; Karen Sipos, Vice President; Kim Gros, Treasurer; and Ed Chamness, Recording Secretary, were presented at the January meeting and a presentation on Quilting with the Internet was presented by Debbie Ginsburg, Beryl Binkard Collins and Karen Sipos.  Their remarks were printed for distribution and can be downloaded at Quilting with the Internet.

          Special recognition was given to Barb Hartings, Corresponding Secretary, and Ron Lundquist, Treasurer, who have served in those capacities for several years. A gift of fabric, donated by guild members, was presented to Mary Bergseth in appreciation for her service as President..

            Kim Gros, who won the Christmas Tree Block Raffle in December, provided a highlight to Show and Tell when she displayed her finished top to claim a $50 quilt shop gift card.  There were 70 blocks in the raffle and she made two additional blocks to complete her quilt top (see adjacent photo). Instructions for the Christmas Tree Block are available at the link below.

Crayon Challenge Projects Set for February

            A number of members have signed up for the February Crayon Challenge and the results of their creative efforts will be on display for the Guild's February 12 meeting.  Members will present their completed projects and comment on the challenge experience.  The projects will be put out for review, and all those in attendance will vote for their favorites with a prize going to the entry voted most popular. Challenge information can be reviewed in the December Newsletter (See Link Above).  

            Our March 12 meeting will feature the first speaker of the year.  Frieda Anderson will be coming from Elgin, Illinois. Frieda is an artist and has been quilting since high school.  She has been hand dying fabric for many years, and the colors she creates are wonderful.  For our meeting her lecture will be "A Walk in the Woods with George."  It is a fun presentation illustrated with Frieda's quilts. 

            Frieda also will be doing two workshops. On from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 3, she will present her "Lone Pine" workshop featuring appliqué featuring some of her colorful hand dyed fabrics,   On Thursday, March 14, Frieda will present  "Fun Free Motion Quilting" from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both workshops will be held at Knob Prairie Church of Christ, 203 West Main Street, Enon.

            Registration sheets, pictures and supply lists for the workshops will be available at the February meeting..

            Deb Geyer from the National Quilter's Hall of Fame will be our April speaker.  She will discuss the organization's activities which will include the induction of Marianne Fons and Liz Porter at the July 18-20, 2019, celebration at the Hall of Fame headquarters in Marion, Indiana.

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.
