QUILTS TO A TEE: USING T-SHIRTS AND UNIQUE CLOTHING IN QUILTS WITH BETH SULLIVANThis lecture is designed to provide inspiration and guidance for quilters who are thinking about tackling a T-shirt or memory quilt. Quilt samples and photos are used to show how quilters can expand the possibilities of the conventional T-shirt quilt to include anything that can be washed, sewn and made to lie flat. Using interesting items is a focal point of the lecture. Come to the guild meeting and learn more!
The meeting is free for ACQ members. Guests may attend for $8.Please register to attend the meeting online via Zoom.
ACQ VIRTUAL QUILT RETREAT
Come and join us for our second annual virtual retreat! The fun will begin on Friday, February 17th at 5 pm MST and last until 2 pm MST on Sunday, February 19th. Your admission includes events on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You are welcome to come the entire time, or pop-in on your own schedule. Space is limited - so sign up early. The first 20 registrants get a special surprise in their registration packet!
The retreat fee covers your registration, a pre-retreat quilt pattern and opportunity to participate in QUILT BINGO, supplies for a project, quilt block ideas, prize drawings, games and entry into the GRAND PRIZE give away.
There are two options for registering for the Retreat. Either sign up for $44 and have your registration packet mailed to you or sign up for $35 and pick up your packet at the February 4 ACQ pop-up event for $35. Mailed packets will go out in early February - so you will have everything when the retreat begins.
Last year we had a great time, so we decided to make it "bigger and better" this year. Since the retreat will be held virtually (through Zoom), you can invite friends from all across the country (and world) to experience a "winter get-away" in Colorado. The more the merrier!
Looking ahead to 2023
