MEETINGS AND WORKSHOPS
2020 - 2021
For the next 3 month we will have guest presenters during our regular Zoom meetings. Beginning in June, for the months of June, July and August we have secured an outdoor location where we can meet together in person.
Guild Meeting Dates
March 20th - Zoom lecture with Sue Sherman
Our speaker, Sue Sherman, lives in Canada and is an international award winning quilt artist, presenter and teacher. Sue’s lecture is a “Quilting Journey of a Renaissance Woman”, where we will be treated to a trunk show of Sue’s quilts and their stories.
Check out Sue’s website to see some of her quilts. She also has several YouTube Tutorials and an Etsy shop.
April 17th - Zoom lecture with Timna Tarr.
Timna is a national award-winning quilter, and has quilts in private and corporate collections. Her quilts are also in numerous exhibits, magazines, and books as well as on The Quilt Show and Quilting Arts TV. She lives in South Hadley, MA and works out of her studio in Holyoke, MA.
At our April meeting, Timna will present her lecture ‘Before and After: Repeating Patterns’. In this lecture she will show the utilitarian quilts from her life, and how they planted the seeds that became the contemporary works that she now creates.
Timna offers several workshops online for $35. The workshops are made up of pre-recorded videos, text, and photos. Once purchased, you can view them as many times as you like through June 2022.
Pictures of Timna’s work and details on her workshops can be found at:
