October Features Needle, Ink and Thread Studio

Jesy Anderson, owner and creative director of Needle, Ink and Thread in Beavercreek, will be the speaker for the October 10 meeting.  Needle, Ink and Thread is a fiber arts studio focusing on sewing education for the fiber arts. It includes, but is not limited to, sewing, textile design, surface design, screen printing, hand embroidery, cross-stitch, crochet, knitting, and weaving!

Jesy hosts monthly community building events such as CREATE which is focused for kids seventeen and up, and Kids Create, a monthly Friday night class where she feed participants pizza and they make a project in three hours.
In addition, Jesy also does alterations with a one week turn around for regular alterations and two weeks for formalwear.

Needle, Ink and Thread is a member of the American Sewing Guild - Dayton Chapter and the Craft Industry Alliance. Jesy is President of a non-profit, Infusion Art, and is a recurring guest teacher at Kettering's Rosewood Art Center.

            Jesy keeps up with the newest sewing trends and patterns by immersing herself in online classes, sew-a-longs, and year-long monthly courses to improve her classes and in turn uses newly gained information to teach her students.

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 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.
