We have two great programs coming up with outside Guest Speakers.  Please Note that due to the rising cost of Guest speakers, Non Busy Bee Members will be charged $10 to attend meetings where there is a Guest Speaker.                                           

September 21st 12:00-3:00 and 6:30-8:30

Join us in September for our guest speaker,  Heidi Thauts',  Program called "Through the Eye of the Needle: A no-tech historical glimpse at key stitching and quilting influences from the 1600s to 1900s". 

Using seven quilted panels she designed to reflect each interesting historical fact, Heidi will take you on a brief journey of four centuries of stitching history ending with influences on the rise and fall of quilting popularity throughout the last two centuries. Heidi repaired and refurbished antique quilts as part of her former quilting business in Bend, Oregon, Sugarplum Quilts. She became obsessed with researching quilt and stitching history, grasping every textbook she could get her hands on including rare books from overseas. She is constantly learning and looks forward to sharing bits and pieces of her discoveries with you.  In addition, she has an education program called ‘Batting Matters”. She has batting samples to show us that give examples of how different batting and quilting can impact the design. Guild members can see and feel differences in the stitching to help determine what batting to use for what quilt or design.

 If anyone has antique quilts they want to show her during a break or at the end, you are encouraged to bring them to the meeting.  She can help advise about repairs, estimated dates, etc. 'I am not a quilt appraiser, but I can give a general idea'.


And….        Looking Forward to the October 19th meeting, we  have another wonderful Guest Speaker lined up so put both these meetings on your calendars..
