    Have you ever finished a quilt, only to find it's wonky and out-of-shape after quilting?  Award winning quilter Audra Rasnake will show us how to get a quilt into shape again by blocking it.

    Have you ever wondered how our wonderful guild was 'hatched?"  What were the catalysts that brought several quilters together to create what has grown to be an amazing quilt guild?   What inspired them and what made them think twice?  Charter member Barbara Swinea will tell us her story.  Maybe then we will finally know what came first, the chicken or the egg!

    Please note:  Our meeting is on THURSDAY night in April due to a scheduling issue at AB Tech.

    Please note:  This workshop is the week before the regular meeting.

    Registration opens on February 15 for AQG members and March 15 for non-members.

    Learn to use traditional batik (beeswax resist dyeing) tools like Indonesian tjanting tools, metal Malaysian stamps, and hand carved Indian woodblocks to print, drip, draw, and paint with natural beeswax on cotton cloth.  Discover the beauty of a single layer batik dyed in the low-water immersion (LWI) style with fiber reactive dyes.  Each participant will make 1 yard of fabric.  During the workshop, you will wax and dye your fabric.  Each student will learn to apply the wax with a variety of tools, then learn to create a LWI dye bath for a single-color dye bath that has varying shades in it.  Instructions for dye washout and wax removal will be given for students to do at home.  Or, for $20.00 per yard, Waxon Studios will handle the removal for you.  This is an exciting and hands on workshop that will have you wanting to make lots more batik fabric!!

    Have you ever wondered about where all those quilts we make for Project Linus go?  Who gets them?  Who decides who gets them?  How do they get there? How many do we make locally?  Nationally?  Well, Ellen is the one who can answer all those questions and more for us.  She works tirelessly for Project Linus.  Ellen runs our monthly workdays at Nativity Lutheran in Arden and is the Coordinator for our Western North Carolina Chapter.  She is a hardworking, delightful and always cheerful person and I am sure you will enjoy her program!

    Marcia Layton is a pattern designer and quilt teacher from Tampa, Florida. Marcia began her adult life as a preschool teacher. She began making hand print quilts for school fund raisers and they sold well.  This was the first step of her very successful quilting and pattern-making career.  Marcia is a wonderful designer and teacher.  I know you will enjoy hearing about her journey!

    Our July Program is by Cindy Page and Patti Cline of the Quilter's Gallery. They are also known as "The Pizza Girls," a nickname they picked up because of the way they package some of their fabrics.  They will show us roughly 50 quilts and tops, some from current patterns and some that are original designs.  As they display the quilts, they will discuss color usage, fabric choices and border treatments. We will also hear some tips and tricks they have picked up over the past 25+ years!  Patti and Cindy are both a lot of fun and I am sure their program will be very entertaining!

    Cheryl Brickey's day job is pretty impressive!  She is an engineer and patent agent for a private textile and chemical company!  Somehow, she found the time and energy to take those skills and combine them with her "craftiness" to create her own quilt pattern company, Meadow Mist Designs.  Cheryl's story reminds us that sometimes it's those little things we do that set us off on an entirely new and rewarding path.  I believe you will enjoy the story of her journey!

    We welcome Candy Grisham back from Missouri!  Her program for us this month is about our "Tools of the Trade" for quilting and sewing. Have you ever needed something on a Sunday and your quilt store wasn't open?  Did you know that some of the tools we use are available at Big Box stores near you that are open 7 days a week?  Candy will tell us about what she has found out there and where it is.  This information could certainly come in handy and could even save us some money!
