Remembering Donna
Donna Vander Broek, the oldest member of LQG, died in December while visiting
her family in Alabama. She had been a member of the guild for many years.
Many of us got to know her better this summer when she and her daughter
Marcia attended many of our gatherings at Pottawattomie Park. Donna also
brought along boxes of fabric to share with members.
Here are Donna, our oldest member, photographed at the park with Jemma
Norkoli, our youngest member.

Upcoming Events

MARCH 14, 2022 ZOOM

March 14, 2022 (Zoom) Speaker: Gemstone artist MJ Kinman, talk and trunk show. The most beautiful gemstone captures light and reflects it back to us with Unique brilliance, revealing its fiery personality. These are the divas and drama queens of the gem world. Every one of them has a story to tell…just like people. This slide lecture and trunk show chronicles my story – my 20-year adventure in learning how to create the biggest diamonds in the world in cloth. 

Workshop/class will be Saturday March 19, 2022 Please check out the workshop page for more information.

Class will consist of making a one of a kind gem block that MJ has very graciously offered to design just for our guild., using her Freezer Paper technique. 

  Please note that we are able to get these professionals from out of state and country because they are doing zoom and we do not have the added cost of travel expenses.  Also many are still not traveling.

The program people have tested zoom out at the church and the program can be projected onto the screen so that if members would like to be with others they can come to the church.   We have the technology and we are going to use it.
