November Meeting -- Saturday, November 10, 2018


Meeting begins at 10am

Presentation begins at 11am



Paper piecing has been around for a long time, but the “Judy Niemeyer” (Quiltworx) paper piecing technique has been refining the process for over 20 years, and the result is an array of patterns and designs that often feature beautiful, long points and stars.  A small number of certified instructors teach the technique all around the world, and we have the rare opportunity to see a Quiltworx trunk show by one of Judy Niemeyer’s top instructors.  Catherine Wilson, a quilt designer and certified Judy Niemeyer instructor, started Queenie Quilts in 2010 as a means of providing quilters with world class instruction and custom-built kits to assist them in making their own Judy Niemeyer masterpiece.   Visit Cat’s website at www.queeniequilts.com

Ronald McDonald Camp


Mary French and Linda Blake, members of our Friendship Group Quilting for Good Times, La Quinta, went to Ronald McD Camp in Idyllwild and gave away 7 Quilts. (5 to children and 2 to the Nurses) Chad, the camp director, accepted them on their behalf. They had a very rewarding day. The families were very appreciative and gave them many hugs.
