News and Musings
As of January 2013 Athens now has its very own Modern Quilt Guild! Thanks to two remarkably able quilters, Mara Evans and Sylvia Schaefer, we now have an official guild that meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6-8 at the Jittery Joe's Westside. They have lots of fun planned, and the group is growing with every meeting. There are no dues - just an interest in modern quilting and a commitment to participate! For more information, meeting schedules and to see the fun go to ModernAthensQuilts on Facebook.
Saturday, June 2, I will be attending the Atlanta chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild! I am quite excited to see what they are up to. Should any quilters in the area of Athens be interested in starting our own branch of this guild please do contact me! I would be very interested to have a local chapter. For more information on the Atlanta guild, see their website at http://www.atlantamodernquiltguild.com/, and for more information on the Modern Quilt guild in general, see the Kansas City site, http://themodernquiltguild.com/about-2/. Please do let me know what you think.
Great news! In April Anita Heady Fiber Arts is opening shop RIGHT ACROSS THE HALL in Studio 5! No longer will we have to wait for shows to peruse her beautiful hand-dyed fabrics. WELCOME ANITA!
