The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 4200 Old Warren Road.
Dianne Graham will give a demonstration on flanged bindings for the program. Members will also discuss plans for the guild’s participation in the Jefferson County Home & Garden Show, Friday and Saturday, April 3-4, according to a news release.
The French braid quilt, pieced and donated by Arleen Parsley, will be on display and the raffle tickets available. The quilt will be raffled at the Home & Garden Show.
During the guild meeting, participants should bring brown bag lunches, thus allowing more time for fellowship and time to work on various community projects.
Show-and-tell, along with fat quarter and door prize drawings will be held after the business meeting.
Members birthdays in February are asked to bring door prizes, 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.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a fat quarter (18 by 22 inches) of 100 percent cotton. Green is the color choice for February, but at any time, white, white-on-white, beige or beige-on-beige fabric is acceptable.
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, according to a club spokesman. No prior experience is needed.
The purpose of the 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.
