Plans for Quilt Show to be finalized at meeting Tuesday

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

Kay Herrin and Charlene Lybrand, two local long-arm quilters, will present a program on “Preparing Your Quilt for Long Arm Quilting.”

Plans will be finalized for the Quilt Show, hosted by the guild and held in conjunction with the Home and Garden Show on Feb. 8. In addition, sign-up for projects half done will start at this meeting.

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 January 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 January is “brights.” 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, which is due in January. 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 anyone 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.
