Angee Turner

Angee Turner, an award-winning quilt maker, designer, and teacherwill share a variety of quilts that use different materials and show her passion for color. She draws inspiration from her feelings, surroundings, life experiences, and the quilts her grandmother sent to her all her life, “A good quilt doesn’t just tell a story; it also invokes a feeling, and a really well-made quilt — made with love — causes the person who uses it to also feel that love. It is hard to make a quilt if you don’t love it.” She is also influenced by mathematics and engineering in her quilt designs.

Angee has been sewing since childhood and began quilting over 20 years ago. Her quilts hang on walls and lay on beds in private collections across the country.

Join us for an inspiring evening of colorful quilts and stories.

Guild Potluck Dinner

Every September our guild meets for a potluck dinner to enjoy good food and great company. Bring something tasty to share, your appetite to sample lots of different dishes, your latest Show-and-Tell, and a friend.

There's no doubt that the food is central, but the most important ingredient is socializing. Each person is asked a "question of the year" that shares something about their quilting life. It's a lovely evening spent with old and new quilting friends.

The meeting (and dinner) starts early at 6:30 pm. If you can, arrive a little earlier (6-ish) to help set up the room. Make sure you bring a serving utensil for your dish. The council provides plates, flatware, napkins, glasses, and drinks.

2018 Quilt Challenge

This year's quilt challenge is to make a small wall quilt that symbolizes your birthday month. It may be any size, but no larger than 20” x 20”. We’ll hang them and vote on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. We can guess the months depicted in the quilts.
