Suzi Parron, Quilter, Author

Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement

I travel full time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations–whoever would like to hear more about Barn Quilts!  My talk will take you on a journey along the quilt trail, beginning with the very first bar quilt, which stemmed from Donna Sue Groves and her wish to honor her mother’s quilting art. Suzi’s presentation will feature over one hundred stunning photographs of bar quilts, some of which rival cloth quilts in their intricacy.  You will hear stories of some of the individuals who have painted quilt blocks to honor loved ones or their local culture, along with a few humorous anecdotes.

The presentation is both informative and entertaining, as we explore the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as the movement continues to expand.

Magazine Labels!  Guild Awareness Campaign and Decluttering for You!

 

These labels are ready for you to print at home and clear your stacks of quilting magazines by leaving at locations where magazines are shared such as a doctor’s or dentist’s offices, nail or hair salon, or even the place you get your car’s oil changed!

A terrific idea from Margaret Natof. Our thanks to her.

Not so interested in printing yourself? Pick up a packet of 10 or more at the next meeting–in the foyer as you come in.
