There are some sewing days scheduled for the summer, check it out in Special events section.

Our meetings will start up in September with a new executive

See you in September!

Gloria made 2 graduation gifts for a niece and nephew, there is a little pocket
on the back for a monetary gift to hide in.

Lori is hiding behind this cute quilt.

Reneta has been busy as usual, the above pictures feature a new quilt pattern from Highway 10 Design "Simply Dashing", fancy patch quilt and pillow, which there are 4 of the same, a great Star Wars R2D2 quilt that she made on a smaller scale, and then this spectacular quilt made of 2" blocks.  There are over 5000 block in that quilt!

Eleanor said she barely made a dent in her scrap bin with this fancy scrap quilt.

Amy made this adorable quilt as a wedding gift for her brother.  You can't see it in the picture but the sir name "LONE" is stitched in the heart.

Karen made these 2 quilts using a simple block.
She is kind to donate them to the guild donation quilt stash.

Karen made a cute machine cover for her vintage feather light Singer sewing machine.

May 2, 2019 Guild Meeting and Annual Challenge Reveal


This month is always exciting for our guild, each year we have a challenge presented to our members for those who want to participate.  This year 2018/19 our challenge was called "Panel Perfect"

This challenge will involve starting with a 'Panel'.  There are so many wonderful panels in the marketplace (or perhaps in your stash).  Some panels will not fit the size specifications of the challenge, but many contain four or more smaller blocks within the purchased panel.  It is perfectly okay to cut these apart and use only one (or more) of the blocks if that suits your plan for constructing your challenge.  (A fabric that you fussy cut motifs from, does not qualify as a panel).  Now it is your turn to embellish the chosen panel and make it special - whether through sashing, bordering with patchwork blocks, pairing  with alternate blocks or thread painting etc. - you do what you think will enhance your work, but staying with in the size restriction of 120".  Challenges will consist of three layers, quilted, bound and finished!

And here are the piece submitted!!!

These works of art will hang in the Dauphin Public Library for the months of May and June.

And the Views Choice Award goes to................


She won a small monetary award & she will have the pleasure of coming up with the next years challenge idea and guidelines. 

We had a few people that had time to finish some other projects to show us as well.
