Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild to meet Tuesday


The Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild will meet at Trinity Lutheran Church located at 4200 Old Warren Road, May, 21st. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and guests are always welcome.

This month’s program will be presented by Debbie Teague. She will give a demonstration on how to color on fabric and present various tricks to this process.

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 May 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 name tag. The noon meal will be a sack lunch.

The fat quarter choice for May is green, aqua or teal. 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, no prior experience is needed.

The purpose of the Pine Bluff Quilter’s Guild is to insure 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.
