The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at Trinity Lutheran Church, 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 15, and guests are always welcome.
The program will be a demonstration by Diane Craig on making “Cross Patch Coasters.” The coasters will be one of the guild’s community service projects. Lunch will be brown bag, thus allowing more time for fellowship and time to work on community service projects, according to a news release.
Plans for the annual rummage sale will be finalized for Friday and Saturday, June 1-2, at Trinity Lutheran Church. Show-and-tell, along with fat quarter and door prize drawings will be held after the business meeting.
Members with a birthday in May are asked to bring a door prize related to quilting or sewing. Door prizes are given out at the end of the meeting and all winners must be present. Members are reminded that the guild is continuing to collect items for the local food pantries.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a fat quarter (18 by 22 inches) of 100 percent cotton. Masculine prints are the choice for May but at any time, white, white-on-white or beige or beige-on-beige fabric is acceptable.
During the workshop Tuesday, May 29, Patsy Brown will give a demonstration on machine applique.
“The purpose of the Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild is to insure the continuity of the craft by teaching the techniques of quilting, and to encourage, and promote an interest in quilting to the public,” according to the release.
The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild has an annual membership fee of $20. Anyone interested in learning the art of quilt making is welcome to come, visit and become a member. No prior experience is needed, according to a club spokesman.
“Come and join us, what you don’t know about quilting, we can teach and what you know about quilting, we can learn,” a spokesman said.
