July
Guild Meeting: Monday, July 13, 2015
Speaker: Donna di Natale

Donna di Natale
Donna’s passion for quilting is also her livelihood. When she is not quilting she’s editing quilt books for Kansas City Star Quilts, which has given her the opportunity to meet and work with talented quilters from around the world. She also collects quilts and studies quilts and quiltmaking. Donna is the author of Anna’s Quilts: A Classic Design for Modern Quilters.

From 1931 to 1940 the Omaha World-Herald encouraged readers to make quilts from patterns published in the paper and then enter them to be exhibited and judged at local department stores. Quilts came by the hundreds and viewers came by the thousands. It was the Great Depression, and valuable prizes, such as furniture, refrigerators, bicycles and linens, enticed people of all ages to enter this prestigious contest. Donna will tell us about this event which is also the subject of her latest book, Prized Quilts: The Omaha World-Herald Quilt Contest.

July Class

Class: A Few of Our Favorite Tips and Tricks from CTG
Instructors: Contemporary Textiles Group
Date: Monday, July 13, 2015
Time: 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

We are pleased to announce our July class offering will be presented by a group of very talented local quilters/artists – The Contemporary Textiles Group. This group has been creating beautiful works for many years and we feel fortunate they are willing to share their expertise, experience and knowledge with us. This promises to be a relaxing and enjoyable day where everyone can learning something new!

There will be five sections throughout the day, each by a different member of the group. One project will be a mini-art quilt taught by Roxanne O’Hare. Information about the other presenters and their topics will be announced at the June LQG meeting.

No Sewing Machine will be required. You will need basic sewing supplies, small scissors, a sketch book or 8 ½ x 11 inch paper, and a small baggie of embellishments (buttons, ribbon, trim, beads, etc.) Fabric for the mini-art quilt will be provided at no cost. Information about any additional supplies you may need will be sent to you when you register.

There may be a minimal supply fee for some sessions ($3-$5) that will be payable at class.
