The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 19, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 4200 Old Warren Road.
The June meeting will be the guild’s annual White Elephant Sale. Members are encouraged to bring any items that are useful, but not wanted by them, according to a news release.
Lunch will be brown bag to allow more time for fellowship and to work on community service projects.
The fund-raising committee will report on the recent yard sale. The first group of mug rugs made by several guild members were presented to the American Legion for distribution at the Veteran’s Hospital at Little Rock. Show-and-tell, along with fat quarter and door prize drawings will be held after the business meeting.
Members with a birthday in June are asked to bring a door prize, which should be 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. Patriotic prints are the choice for June but at any time, white, white-on-white or beige or beige-on-beige fabric is acceptable.
The guild’s annual membership fee is $20. Anyone interested in learning the art of quilt making is welcome to visit and become a member, according to a club spokesman. No prior experience is needed.
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. “Come and join us, what you don’t know about quilting, we can teach and what you know about quilting, we can learn.” A guild spokesman said.
