Programs - Events
Beginning Monday, May 17, we are planning in-person monthly gatherings at Pottawattomie Park in Grand Haven. This will be a chance to see each other face to face (well, really, mask to mask) in a socially responsible way, as we hopefully move our way towards more “normal” social gatherings. These gatherings on the third Monday of each month will be in addition to our usual guild meetings on the second Monday of each month.
We have rented Shelter #1 at the park for the following days, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
–Monday, July 19
Monday, August 16
Monday, September 20
Parking is free and there are tables at the covered picnic shelter. You are welcome to bring your own chairs and non-alcoholic beverages. We envision this as a time to get re-acquainted with each other, to have some “show and tell” time, to check out some of our library books, and to just have fun.
The park is located on 15600 Comstock Street, east of the airport. From US 31, turn east onto Comstock Street which runs between Meijer’s and Walmart. More details will be available in the May newsletter, but for now, please put these dates on your calendar – rain or shine!

This lecture presents an overview of my approach to designing quilts and the how differing choices can influence the look of a quilt. A series of examples illustrate my design process, from creating a pattern to unusual fabric choices. I am happy to answer questions from the audience during my presentation. (1 hour)
Below are some examples of her patterns, with her freezer piecing technique. Her workshop will also be the same week. Sept. 14th and Sept. 16th. we will be working on learning her technique with the leaf patterns. For more information on the workshop see the workshop page.

Flying Colors Trunk Show
Timna is known for making fun, colorful, award-winning quilts. Join her for a trunk show of her quilting journey. She talks about her design and color choices, as well as the personal stories behind the quilts. This should be a very lively fun lecture.
Please check out her website and also she has 4 online classes (pictured below) that you can do at your own pace. I did the Stitched Mosaics, very easy to understand her videos and directions. I really enjoyed this new technique. (Wendy)
