We held our first meeting of the new year on Jan. 4 with guest speaker Debra Kay, regional rep for the Studio Art Quilters Association of Arizona (SAQA). Debra shared many of her beautiful art quilts and explained the techniques used to make each one special. It was an educational and inspiring presentation.
Our next meeting will be held on Feb. 1 at 1 p.m., in the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club, at 25601 E. Sun Lakes Blvd. N., in Sun Lakes. We are fortunate to be hosting local Sun Lakes quilt designer Penny Sturges as our lecturer and trunk show presenter. Penny is well known for her many bags, pouches, totes, and pin cushions, to name only a few of her many original designs, and we’re excited to see what she has for us.
We will be raffling off two opportunity quilts at our March 1 meeting. It’s not too late to purchase raffle tickets. They are $1 each or $20 for 25 tickets (which is five free tickets!). For additional information on where to purchase tickets, please contact President Betty Bogaard at [email protected].
