Some of the quilts are made by our KPQG members. Here is only a sampling of what you will see. Visit the library to see in person all of the art quilts.
Another fourth Saturday of the month is soon here to have fun with others, quilt, sew, and snack. Open to both members and nonmembers!

Time: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
The featured activity is to make items for the KPQG Sale Table at the Quilts Along the Wildcat quilt show on October 5 & 6, 2018. Other activity is to bring your own project in progress, sew the KPQG BOM, ask for help with a quilting/sewing problem, etc. or stop by and check us out. Remember, there are Bernina Bernette model sewing machines available for you to use if you do not want to bring your machine.
See you soon. 🙂

Susan K. Cleveland is a quilter, quilt designer, author, teacher, and inventor. She will teach two half-day workshops, a one-hour program, and one half-day lecture/demo at our quilt show on Friday, October 5 & Saturday, October 6.
The 3 hour lecture/demo Susan is teaching is Simple Quilting with Style: Alternatives to Free-motion Quilting. With lively projected demos you will learn to prepare a quilt top for a successful finish; discover secrets of ditch quilting; learn when and how to mark or not mark a quilt; study stitching with heavy threads; get excited about big stitch hand quilting, bobbin quilting and couched quilting. These skills empower those whose free-motion skills are less than stellar but may be combined with free-motion quilting as well. Quilt your quilts with style and techniques you enjoy the most!
What is a lecture/demo?
- A lecture/demo includes up to four day’s worth of hands-on class material in only a few hours.
- Handouts are provided and students need to only bring paper and pen for taking notes.
- Breaks occur every hour to examine quilts and visit.
- The latest technology is used to incorporate a video camera and projector with lively demos so everyone sees each task in great detail.
Loads of info and lots of quilts! You will love it! Registration is open at guaranteevac.com. You may register for Susan’s lecture/demo that is scheduled on Saturday, October 6, from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm as well as any of her other events for Friday and Saturday.
