BROWN BAG AUCTION
Are your UFO’s getting out of control? Do you need to free up some space in your sew-ing room so you can buy new stuff? Wonder why you bought that great pattern that’s been impossible to figure out? We’ve got a great way to help you with all of the above, and all you need is a few good brown bags. Bring your bags of “really good stuff” and your checkbook to the January 14, 2015 meeting and let Auctioneer John Roy take those items off your hands while we all have a fun night bidding to buy items we didn’t know we needed. How great is that? You know John, that suave, smooth talking quilty guy who sits in the back row at each meeting. He is so smooth he could talk a cold Eskimo into buying another 50 pound block of ice in an ice storm! So fill up those bags, brave the cold January wind, and have a fun night out with your quilting friends.
Thanking the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation donors for supporting her educational aspirations at Parsons The New School for Design, where she is perusing her
BFA in Fashion Design with a minor in graphic design, Dakota “Koko” Clarke (second left) presented her 2014 scholarship donors with a print she created in her first year, second semester printmaking class. Clarke said, “This was the first time I had ever etched a copper plate using acid. These types of learning experiences are what really thrill me and I have never felt so excited to devour all bits of information and learn numerous techniques in regards to art. I
am so grateful for my awards and hope to make you all
proud.” In 2013, Clarke was awarded the Chelsea R. Bowen Memorial, Gilford Education Association, Bruce & Scott Shaw Memorial, and the Annalee Thorndike Art Award. She is shown with this year’s donors, Shirley Mento (left), representing the Belknap Mill Quilters Guild Award and Mary VanderNoot (second right), LRSF trustee and representative of the Norman C.& Mary M. VanderNoot Award, and Joan Cormier (right), LRSF Executive Director. On behalf of the Quilters Guild, Mento reminded everyone to check their website: bmqg.org for more information about their 37th Annual Harvest of Quilts on October 4 and 5, 2014, which helps raise funds for their scholarship awards
This guide provides the inspiration for a year's worth of quilts and table toppers: 24 projects that are perfect for all seasons and occasions.
Pam and Nicky bring you a fresh collection of 14 brand new quilt patterns, each with a beautiful variation design. Uses a range of Moda™ pre-cuts, including the new fat eighth bundle!
Can't find the fabric you need? Create it with paint! This choice gives the quiltmaker unlimited flexibility in execution. Each of these 15 original design projects may be appliquéd, created with fabric paint, or may combine both fabric and paint techniques. Even up close, you won't be able to tell if a quilt is painted or appliquéd without touching it.
Other Books Include:
Simple Circles & Quick Curves (Machine Applique)
Stitchin’ Retro (Embroidery)
Crazy Shortcut Quilts (Crazy Quilts)
