Blue Earth Valley Quilters

Love to quilt? Then join the Blue Earth Valley Quilters at their next meeting!  It’s open to quilters of all skill levels welcome. Program presenters are Jan Shaffer and Dorothy Ristau. Jan has just finished quilting a Dear Jane quilt made by Dorothy, and they will share some of the ideas, rewards, and pitfalls in creating such a large and complex project.

The Blue Earth Valley Quilters meet on the third Monday of each month (no meeting in July or December) under the umbrella of Blue Earth Area Community Education. Each meeting consists of a brief welcome and introductions, a quilt related demonstration, show and tell, a question and answer session and a few minutes to talk with other quilters. Those who are interested may stay after the meeting for the Block-of-the-Month project. The Blue Earth Valley Quilters has been referred to as a guild without all the rules.
