June Meeting To Feature

Linda M. Poole Lecture/Trunk Show

            Our June 13th meeting features a lecture and trunk show by nationally known quilt author, instructor, lecturer, and fabric designer Linda M.  Poole.

            Linda’s main focus is appliqué, and she has a new technique that she teaches students so they can learn to color, blend, and paint with ink pencils and ink blocks. Linda will be teaching a class on June 14th called “Paint. Doodle. Stitch.” This is an all day workshop, and the cost for guild members is $35 plus the kit fee of $35. The price for non-guild members is $50 plus the kit. Non-guild members participating in the workshop will be admitted to the June meeting without charge.

            The kit includes color photographic instructions, ink pencils, textile medium, paint brushes, fabric marker, water-soluble glue stick, Kosheki toothpicks, paint cups, uncoated paper plate, freezer paper, master pattern, design drawn on prepared for dye cotton fabric, water soluble appliqué sheet, and baby wipes. All you need to bring is a non-corrugated 8 x 10 cardboard, foam core or poster board for painting on, a pre-moistened washcloth inside a baggie to keep fingers clean, 6 Paper towels, a container with water, and fabric scissors. You can see this project at lindampoole.com by clicking on “classes.”

            We can only accommodate 20 students. The workshop is an all-day event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a break for lunch. The workshop will be held at the Xenia Community Center, 1265 West Second Street, Xenia.

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.  The 2012 show will be Friday and Saturday, May 4and 5.

          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 $5.00 fee for non-members at programs featuring professional speakers.
