February 2019

February 19th,   Your Quilt Guild brings to you our speaker, Marlene Sowatzke of Indiana.  Marlene has been quilting for over 40 years having learned to sew from her grandmother.  Not too long ago in 2011, Marlene was inspired as she saw her “Scrapbasket” overflowing with pieces of beautiful fabric from all those years.  Her scrap quilt techniques have become her passion and today she can take a pile of 2” and 3 7/8” squares to create an amazing quilt all the while reducing and using her scraps.  She even credits some of her inspiration to Pinterest.  She looks forward to sharing her techniques and passion with us Tuesday!

January 15th, Michael Stephens of Not Your Average Quilter in Fayette, IN will present his artistic quilts and give us a look into the processes he uses.
Michael will be conducting a workshop on January 31 from 9AM to 3PM at our usual meeting location, Messiah Lutheran in Brownsburg, to teach the technique he uses in his artistic quilts. The image chosen is a rooster, and it is necessary to purchase the kit from Michael. The cost of the kit is $55 and we will need to know the number of participants by January 24th. There is no other cost for the workshop, but a donation to the Messiah Lutheran Food Pantry is requested: food item, personal hygiene product, or monetary donation, please.
