2021 Upcoming Programs to date
From Diane Murtha: “An informative and humorous perspective on my quilt challenge experiences, including a trunk and slide show. Most importantly, I'll discuss how challenges can expand your quilting skills and inspire all of your quilting!
I started as a traditional quilter in the late ’90s, gradually modifying patterns and gravitating to art quilts, specifically participating in art quilt challenges. An early retirement allowed me time to open my creative aperture to explore quilting on even more new levels!
Challenges are an excellent opportunity to get out of your comfort zone. I embrace it fully and encourage you to do the same and experience the joy and personal satisfaction of challenges!
So why do you want to listen to me? Because I am you! My point is – if I can do challenge quilts – so can you! I’m not fancy. I only recently started entering juried competitions. However, I’m super excited to share what I have learned with you.”

Barb Eikmeier will give a program entitled “Just Solids.”
Historically, solids appeared in Amish and Hawaiian quilts, and quilts form the 1930’s. Today they are popular in modern quilts. Some quilters love solids. Others don’t. There is something for every taste in this collection of quilts made with “Just Solids.” See contemporary and traditional examples, and international textiles as you hear Barb speak about her love affair with solids.
Jane Bromberg will present “Finishing Up!”
This will be a trunk show featuring ideas and inspiration for edge finishes that include bindings, facings and edge trims. Everything you need to know to make the edges of your quilt your own!
Things are in the works! Stay tuned.
