January 2018 Program

Mini Workshops

In my duties as your Workshop Chair, the January Program falls to me! I hope
that you will support, with your attendance at the meeting, the three members of
Prairie Quilt Guild who have agreed to participate in our “Mini Workshops”

Kendra McBroom, our Vice President, will be presenting a couple of short
presentations of Hints and Tips. Even experienced quilters may learn many tips they
are currently unaware of, to make quilting simpler, or more fun. Kendra, as you
know, is a wonderful speaker, and I know her efforts will be useful to us.

Linda Beachy-Hughes has agreed to do a short program on her Silhouette Cameo
machine. She plans to explain to us how she uses her machine for all her quilting
processes, from planning to completion. You have seen her delightful quilts during
“Show and Share”, and she has recently won an award for one of her quilts!

Lora Lagree will be presenting a program on old quilts and rescues. Lora has a
history of rescuing old quilts! A part of her presentation will include information
about a prolific quilter, from Nebraska named Grace Snyder. She has a huge quilt on
display at the Quilt Museum in Omaha. A book, written by her daughter, Nellie
Snyder Yost, entitled “No Time On My Hands” will be reviewed. I know that all three
of our members will keep you entertained or enlightened! Please attend the January
meeting, and support these members!
