Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild

for more information!
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

Jacquie Gering and to see her work.
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.
