About Us

President’s Corner April 2018

What a busy month we had in March with our meeting, Community Affairs Sew-In, TV spot with Dave Allgood of KREX, and the Navajo Wedding Basket Class with Jolly Stanford. 
Now that Spring is here, it looks like the busy times will continue. I am tormented by “voices” that are calling me to do some spring cleaning (not my favorite), working in my garden and roses, and quilting projects. Too many choices but it all needs to be done.
I do get to put all of that on the back burner for a few days and travel to Tacoma, Washington for some family time with my sisters and brother while we get to play with my three-year-old great nephew. So looking forward to having a great time and maybe checking out a couple of quilt stores.
Trust that as Spring rolls in, all of you get some great quilting done.

 TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts

At Sunset Slope Quilters our purpose is to perpetuate the rich heritage of quilting in America, and to promote the art and perfection of the craft.  We meet to learn from well-known and local speakers, to share our quilts and to conduct our business as well as enjoy fellowship with each other. Workshops are also held for learning skills. We have a number of satellite groups that meet to stitch for fun, to learn from each other and to work on community charity projects.
