Susan is passionate about fabric, thread, texture, imagery, pattern and colour, and all
their myriad possibilities.

Stacked and sliced fabrics combined with bold, contrasting strips create visual
excitement in your quilt. Students can work with a planned colour palette or make it
scrappy, every fabric is perfect for a Shattered Angles quilt! Finished size and layout is
flexible, make it big or small, students will be given lots of options for quilt design and
(20 quilters only) There are a few spaces still available.

We are hosting our three local quilt shops!!
Garden Thyme, Stitch by Stitch and Wilton Creek
will each present some of the new notions, gadgets and gizmos they have in stock.
There will be a short explanation of how to use each item, as well as a short discussion.
You will also have the opportunity to browse
and maybe buy the gadget to make your life easier.
The library will be open, 50/50 tickets will be sold
and there will be a short business meeting.

Have you started the sort and de-cluttering of Spring?
Bring all of your old Quilting/Needlework magazines to the Guild Library.
They will sell them cheaply to build a “buying” budget.
The funds raised by selling Susan McLean’s magazines will go to something on Reproduction or I Spy quilts. They were two of her special interests.
Remember the Guild as you Spring Clean.
I hope you all enjoyed the meeting with Martha Schellingerhoud.
She had a wonderful trunk show to share with us.
Her work is just exquisite.
Then, some members shared their work in progress BOM quilts.
They are going to look amazing when they are done.
There was a magazine sale from the estate of Susan McLean.
On Thursday, fun was had by all, at the guild workshop.
It was “Machine Quilting” with Martha Schellingerhoud.
This workshop was held in the new huge classroom at Stitch by Stitch.
Looks like a lot of fun!!
