On May 6th we welcomed a former Loose Threads guild member, Pam Chasen, to our meeting. Pam gave a very informative presentation and beautiful trunk show entitled Appliqué and Collage. Pam is an accomplished quilt artist who draws inspiration from her background as an émigré from South Africa and her Jewish faith. Pam shared some of her techniques and thrilled us with several of her incredible art quilts done in the technique of appliqué and collage. Many of her descriptions of how a quilt came to be were very moving, while others were quite amusing. We hope Pam will come back to the guild and share more of her quilting expertise and beautiful quilts with us. In the meantime, check out her website, www.treasuresoutofthebox.com, to be inspired and to enjoy learning more about her.
We have two meetings left in this season and it is hard to believe how quickly time has gone by. The dates and programmes are:
Over the summer you will be receiving an email with a file attached that will contain the original by-laws of Loose Threads. It is time to review these, and we hope people will take the time to read them and send any comments to me. We will update the by-laws, renamed Guild Guidelines, in the early fall.
