Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, see our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

New officers for a new year

We have a full slate of newly elected officers for the new year. Come see who's leading us this coming year. We have an all star year planned and there will be surprises galore.

We will be having another fun meeting in September with Cara Gulati who will be treating us to some of her beautiful creations. She has a website, DoodlePress, where you can look to your heart's content. Her workshop will be Ribbon Riot and it's gorgeous. Check with our workshop chair to see if there's still room for you.

We are starting, in September, to take our 2017 Opportunity Quilt around to various locations. We hope to have a list up for you soon. We will be at the Farmer's Market in September, don't remember the dates, but you'll love the quilt and want to buy tickets.

Upcoming meeting

Hello to all our fellow quilters! Annie's Star Quilt Guild will be having a very busy meeting on August 4th. We will be having our election off officers that night. We will be finding out who will lead us for the next year that starts in September. As a member, please make sure your vote is counted!

We will be hosting Catherine Wilson of Queenie Quilts for the evening. She has an exciting program lined up for us and will be teaching on Friday. Hopefully, you are signed up and ready to start stitching this beautiful pattern.

The meeting will start at 7pm, doors open at 6:30pm, and a good time will be had by all. So bring your show & tell, your stories to share, and your checkbook so you can buy some patterns. Catherine is a certified Judy Neimeyer instructor and has more than 20 years of quilting experience. Her quilts are vibrant and sure to please.

See you there!

Upcoming dates

We have lots of fun planned for the upcoming months. The calendar has been updated for the Guild meetings through December 2016. The workshops will be added once this writer finds the information.

Right now we are in need of members to help with the 2017 Quilt Show committees. We need help in a lot of places and while it is still out a little over a year, that time will fly fast. The sooner we get everything up and functioning, the easier the quilt show will pull together in 2017. Contact our 2017 Quilt Show chair, Teresa Yocum to volunteer.

Our nominating committee has indicated that they will be publishing the names of those who have volunteered to take offices next year in the newsletter. Please check it out and remember, we need to all work together to make our guild the best guild we can. Voting will take place in August so make sure that you are there to cast your ballot!

There are still some committee openings, so if you've always wanted to try one, grab a friend and do it together. Most of the committees can be shared with at least one buddy, or more.

Our guild dues are coming due as well. They are due in September and are considered delinquent in November. The forms were emailed out and you can get a copy on the web page as well. It will be in the newsletter, so there is no excuse to not turn it in.

See you at the next meeting!

Fun and laughter

For those of you who missed the treat of having Anelie Belden at our meeting April 7th, you missed a truly amazing treat. She has a way with words and kept us totally enthralled. She shared not only her beautiful quilts, but stories about herself that were a riot. As a guild, we laughed and then laughed some more. She told us what she did with dresden plates that didn't lay flat - or rather she showed us. This created more laughter.

Those who took the workshop on Friday will have more tales to tell come our share and tell in May. You don't want to miss the fun.

Our speaker in May will be Lura S-Smith who does the most amazing art quilts. This writer wishes my brain and hand could do the same.  You will have to see them to truly understand her talent.

Our June meeting will be our community sew night and I'm urging all to come and work. This night has been, in the past, a night of amazing quilt top production. I expect this year to be the same. Some groups have everything cut out before hand and get together more than one top. Some groups pull kits from community service and get tops together. Come join the fun - it's a portion of your membership requirement to make something for community service and this is a great way to share with the guild members and have a fun night.

July is our anniversary. This year we celebrate 35 years and hope all will join in on the fun. A potluck dinner and dessert is purchased by the guild. Sometimes we have games, sometimes we have silent auctions of items donated. We always have fun. So come join us and celebrate with fellow guild members.
