January General Meeting and Program


     The fiber art group Fringe Sisters presented a trunk show for the Jan. general meeting.  Here a couple of guild members are enjoying the result of a group challenge to depict a woman’s form.

Another of their group projects combined with 2 upstate fiber art groups (Thread Heads and the Focus Fiber Arts Group) was “The Everchanging River”. 

The monthly challenge for January was to create an apron or kitchen themed block.  There were several traditional aprons and a couple of quilt blocks with aprons.   One unusual apron was pieced and quilted by Allie.

The miniature queen made an apron about 1 ½”, but I did not get a photo of it.

I only took a few photos so here they are.  For show & tell Anita showed a memory quilt she made for a mother from the child’s clothing, not just t-shirts. 

This quilt was made during a workshop at the Richland County Public Library when they hosted the ladies of Gees Bend.  This Feb. 4th they will have a workshop on string pieced blocks.  Participants will make a 12 inch string pieced quilt block with a heart theme to take home, hear about the thrifty tradition of string piecing and see a brief slide show of some beautiful string pieced quilts. Basic sewing skills required. To register call 929-3457.
