Welcome to February, Nimble Thimbles.

Our next meeting is tomorrow, February 1.

6:15 – Block of the week sharing

6:45-7:00 – Member connection

7:00 – Start of meeting

 

Program – Our featured speaker is Lyric Kinard with a program on Quilting Portraits.  From her website (https://lyrickinard.com/), My goal as an artist is to remind humanity of the strength it possesses. In a world where too often, the images we feed ourselves are full of violence and fear, I strive to uplift. In a many layered process I gather intriguing materials both old and new. I marvel as plain cloth is transformed as it absorbs dye and paint. The meditative process of mark making with thread allows me to truly see and understand my materials and physically connect with my subject. Slowly order emerges from disarray, beauty from chaos.

Other business information –

·         Exciting new upcoming challenge from Melissa

·         Announcement about Spring camp

·         Update on board positions for 2021/2022

·         Presidents Challenge

·         Member highlight

·         And Show and tell.

October 20th, 2020 Meeting

Join us for our next ZOOM meeting on October 20th featuring, Kate Collearn seamslikeadream.com.


Kate started seams like a dream quilt designs in 2003. In 2012 she and her husband moved from Connecticut to Colorado and she decided to take a break from 30 years of nursing.
From day 1 the goal was to help people make a quilt. And  to have fun. To Kate, quilting is about creating, about learning, and having fun and about community.
Her lecture will be on Modern Traditionalism. The designs are fun, fresh, and a mix of traditional elements with a modern twist. 

Meeting time 7-9.  Join early and see what our block of the week club is finishing.
