Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild to meet Tuesday


The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 17 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 4200 Old Warren Road.

This month’s activity will be a “strip” game. Anyone wishing to participate should bring five strips of fabric, cut 2 1/2 inches by the width of the fabric (approximately 40 inches). The winner will go home with a pot of fabric.

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 June 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 provided.

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

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.
