PB Quilter’s Guild to hold Christmas program Tuesday


The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church, 4200 Old Warren Road, for its Christmas program.

A special musical group presentation and ornament exchange will set the tone for the meeting. Prize drawings for show and tell and Works In Progress (WIP) will be conducted.

The regular show-and-tell presentations, along with fat quarter and door prize drawings, will be held after the business meeting. Members with a birthday during the month of December 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 also reminded to wear their nametag. Lunch will be a special potluck with ham provided by the guild.

The fat quarter choice for December is white. 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, 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. “Come and join us, what you don’t know about quilting, we can teach and what you know about quilting, we can learn,” a guild spokesman said.
