The Blue Earth Valley Quilters will hold the sixth meeting of the 2016-2017 year this Monday, April 17, 2017, at 7:00 pm in the Blue Earth Area High School Choir Room. Please enter through Door V on the south side of the building. After introductions, the meeting will begin with show-and-tell, which is always inspiring!
The Gypsy Wife Quilt mini-group is finishing up on their project. There next mini-group project will likely be the Navajo Code Talkers quilt. Signup for the Art Institute of Chicago Challenge will continue. These projects are to be completed for the EXPO in August – all members are encouraged to participate. Booklets for the Minnesota Quilters State Show in Duluth are available at Michele’s in downtown Blue Earth.
This will be followed by a demonstration and lecture about fabric dyeing by Wendy Nickel. If you’ve been wondering what is involved in creating your own personal hand-dyed fabrics, this is the meeting for you.
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, a quilt discussion group, or a mini-class in quilting – it is open to everyone who enjoys quilts or quilting – quilters of all skill levels are always welcome!
