Something special follows almost every General Meeting
One of the many benefits of being a part of Sunset Slope Quilters is the opportunity for members to learn new skills and grow their talents through exclusive Programs and interesting Workshops, all year long. Sometimes we take a break, for instance, in December for our Christmas party, but most months we’ve done the homework to find a guest speaker or teacher who can enliven, engage and entertain our group.
These guests don’t simply lecture, they often help put their knowledge to practical effect at a Workshop.
You can access our upcoming Programs & Workshops by their month (and review prior programs) in the menu at the top of the page.
SSQ SUNBONNET SUE OF THE MONTH
President Crawford announced that this month’s Sunbonnet Sue is Diana Sheldon was award the Sunbonnet Sue for the month of April. Diana is a faithful volunteer at nearly every event. She quietly pitches in when and wherever needed. Thank you for all you do, Diana.
Block of the Month Program
Each month a new Block of the Month is presented with the challenge to all members to try a new technique or block style. Those participating in this challenge bring their new block to be placed on display. It is amazing how a single block pattern can change with a change of color and fabric style. At the end of the 12 month period you can have enough blocks to make a wonderful new quilt project. Patterns are provided to members only. Come join us and put your creativity to work. Your final challenge is to create a completed quilt top to present at the April, 2019 meeting Show and Tell. For more information about the Block of the Month: Take me There.
Winter is closing in and we all need a break. Try a three day “Retreat” with quilting in mind and join your friends for a trip to Moab, Utah. A little time to learn, laugh, and relax without interruptions.
It’s Rendezvous Time. A tradition for Sunset Slope Quilters.
Rendezvous features classes taught by the talented members of our guild, providing an opportunity for learning as well as a chance to get to know others in a relaxed atmosphere. After all, the social aspect of quilting can be very relaxing as well as inspiring and it occurs at a time of year when you are itching” to be stitching outside of the home.
It’s our Birthday Bash! Get together for a wonderful celebration and lunch.
Barnes and Noble Book Fair and Quilt Show
Barnes & Noble has sponsored this fund raising event with Sunset Slope Quilters since 2006. The Barnes & Noble book fair is a great place to do a little shopping, have a cup of coffee or tea and spend a little time finishing up on your last minute sewing while spending time with other SSQ members. It is a great opportunity to show the community the artistic and charitable things we do as quilters.
