PB Quilter’s Guild to finalize plans for retreat at meeting


The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church, 4200 Old Warren Road.

Final plans for the guild retreat will be discussed. This month’s program will be the second set of blocks in the sampler quilt. Three different quilt blocks will be demonstrated with members sewing along if they desire. In the afternoon, members who are planning to attend the paper-piecing workshop March 24-25 may start some of the preliminary steps.

Show-and-tell, along with fat quarter and door prize drawings, will be held after the business meeting. Members with a birthday during the month of March are asked to bring a door prize, 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. Members are reminded to wear their name tag. Lunch will be brown bag.

The fat quarter choice for March is green. At any time, white, white-on-white or beige or beige-on-beige fabric is accepted. Everyone is encouraged to bring a fat quarter (18-by-22 inches) of 100 percent cotton.

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. Membership is open to all who are interested in quilting and no prior experience is needed.

The purpose of the Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild is to ensure the continuity of the craft by teaching the techniques of quilting, and to encourage, and promote an interest in quilting to the public.
