Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website

Our next evening Membership Meeting is October 26, 2016 at the Venice Community Center.  Doors open at 6:15 for socializing, visiting the library, signing up for classes and Quilt Escape and other guild activities.  Our guest speaker is Kim Eichler-Messmer, textile artist and fabric dyer.  Kim's lecture and trunk show will be "Color Theory for Quilters".  There are still openings in the Thursday, October 27th class.   Visit Kim's website to see her exciting work:  www.kimem.com.  As always, wear your nametag and bring your latest quilts for "Show and Tell". 

Don't forget to bring a contribution for the food pantry.  Here is a list of suggestions - you may not know that some of these are accepted.

The Winner Circle meets on October 3rd from 10 to 2 at the Jacaranda Library.  Details and the schedule of dates are on our "Circle News Page".

Don't forget our informal workshop on October 12th in Room F at the Venice Community Center.  Bring something to work on, get opinions from other quilters, meet members and have fun.

Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesdays of each month from 9-2 at the the Venice Community Center.   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.
