Our next evening Membership Meeting is March 22nd at the Venice Community Center.  Doors open at 6:15 for socializing, visiting the library, signing up for classes and other guild activities.  Our guest speaker is Modern Quilter Jacquie Gering.  Non-members pay $5.00.  Jacquie's lecture will be "Modern Quilting: You'll Know It When You See It".  Are you seeing the word "modern" plastered on anything that moves these days? Confused about what Modern Quilting really is? Jacquie will share her definition of Modern Quilting and directly address some of the misunderstandings and questions about the modern aesthetic. As always the best way to understand anything about modern quilts is by seeing examples and Jacquie will share lots of quilts and talk about what makes them modern or not.  Click HERE to learn more about Jacquie Gering and to see her work.

Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 9-2 at the Venice Community Center.   On March 8th, bring your own work or you can help make items for the 2018 Quilt Show Boutique.  This month's projects are tissue pack covers and hanging plastic bag holders.

Our ongoing Community Service project  is to make nap quilts for every child entering the Head Start program in south Sarasota County.  The quilts were delivered in August, but you can still turn in quilts at any informal workshop.   The Community Service committee is always looking for donations of fabric suitable for childrens quilts - bright solids and fun themes.
