Cranberry Quilt Guild to meet Monday

Aug 20, 2023Aug 20, 2023

The Cranberry Quilt Guild will meet on Monday at Faith United Church of Christ off Airport Beltway in Hazle Township, with doors opening at 6 p.m. and meeting beginning at 6:30. This month’s meeting offers a trunk show hosted by Jo Garvin.

Jo, an accomplished applique quilter, will highlight her techniques to the group showing her collection of quilts. She will introduce members to this experience with many styles of this art form.

In the trunk show, members will have the chance to view the Baltimore Album style of quilt, which is appliquéd, along with other techniques of the applique style of quilting.

A members only workshop for those who have preregistered will also be held on Aug. 29.

At the workshop, Jo will teach the easy art of invisible applique. The book recommended for the class is, “Baltimore Beauties and Beyond, Volume 1,” by Elly Sienkiewicz. Jo will have copies available for purchase at the meeting.

Members are reminded to also bring the supplies from the materials list that was previously provided to the workshop.

Only one year to go until Cranberry quilt guild will host its next quilt show planned for September 2024.

At the July meeting, President Debbie issued the challenge for members to choose to make either a red and white or blue and white quilt or quilted piece.

Fabric samples were passed around so everyone could begin planning.

Cranberry quilt guild also donates walker bags, chemo care kits, fidget quilts, baby quilts, and Quilts of Valor. Members are reminded that they can seek information at the meetings regarding any of these projects.
