Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild
Our next evening Membership Meeting is April 26th at the Venice
Community Center. This is also our Annual Meeting so we will be
voting on the 2017-2018 Budget and electing Officers and
Directors for the coming two year terms.
Our guest speaker will be Karis Hess, founder of Clobird Designs and
owner of The Modern Sewist with "The Flavors of Fabric - Today’s Moderns
Quilting 'a la Karis". Join us to learn all about the journey
Karis has taken from kitchen table to sewing circle. This engaging
entrepreneur has stories to tell from her experiences as a traveling
chef and handbag designer - both of which ultimately led her to open
Sarasota’s newest Modern Quilt Shop. Guest fee $5.00.
Doors open at 6:15 for socializing, visiting the
library, signing up for
classes and other
guild activities. If you have scraps for pet beds to drop off,
please read the article in the April Newsletter before bringing them.
There are still a few openings in Barbara Plough's April 26th class on
Machine Applique. You can make unique towels or use the
technique on other projects.
are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 9-2 at the Venice Community Center.
On April 12th, bring your own work or you can help make items for the
2018 Quilt Show Boutique.
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.
