    6:45 pm Show and Tell, 7:00 pm meeting

    We interact with our fellow quilters at this meeting – and not our regulars!  The room will be set up with round tables and everyone will be assigned a table number at sign-in.  After Show ‘n’ Tell and a brief business meeting, we will do handwork and get to know our tablemates. 
    Some icebreaking  suggestions will be provided!

    You probably won’t need them -  we’re all quilters, after all!
    Some refreshments will be provided!  Bring more if you like!

    Bring your handwork and plan to have fun.  You could color or just relax and chat if you don’t have any handwork.  The goal is to make new connections.

    During the meeting we will have a trunk show of Kelly Hogan’s sister’s quilts. ellen edith was a fabric designer and quilter who created a series of fun story quilts illustrating events in the Hogan family.

    Keep it Simple Fall Retreat

    Registration opens July 10th for non-members.

    Every quilter longs for hours of uninterrupted quilting and time for sharing patterns, quilting tips and conversation with some great quilting friends. That is what you will find at an AAQG Retreat.

    Participants bring their own projects to work on during the retreat, and everyone works at their own pace.

    The retreat fee covers room, board, supplies and administrative services required to coordinate the retreat. Confirmation letters, maps and suggested supplies to bring are sent out approximately one month prior to the retreat.

    If you have any questions, email or call Laura Saegert,  retreatfall@aaqg.org or 512-736-2976

    Black and white fabric is prevalent in most quilt shops and is a very creative option to thread paint some amazing designs. Thread painting on commercial fabric is as easy as 1.2.3. In this workshop you will learn how to blend thread to make the finished flower look realistic. With the design printed, it is easy to begin your thread painting adventure. Once you have taken this class, you will never look at black and white fabric the same.  A required kit fee of $10 contains items that promote your success.

    The Journey of an Award-Winning Quilt

    6:45 pm Show and Tell, 7:00 pm meeting 

    Come join Nancy as she takes you through the journey in making an award winning quilt. On This Winter Day took over 2,000 hours over a 7 year period to make and as you can imagine there were days of extreme highs and days of “What have I gotten myself into?” So come see the process and how the quilt evolved.

    When you mix quilting with art you get Thread Art. This is a great class for those who want to explore an innovative way to make beautiful art quilts but have little or no experience with quilting.  The techniques the students will learn can be used to produce an art quilt of anything (person, place, or thing). Students will learn how to design and stitch out a whole cloth art quilt using thread and colored pencils as the medium.  Creating their own landscape, portrait, or still life art quilt seems intimidating to most.  Lola has taken the fear out of the process using her seven step approach.  The techniques learned can be easily transferred to make a purse, or sweatshirt.  Students will leave with a completed 11 x 17 thread art quilt. Optional Kit is available.  Kit includes all the fabric, batting, pre-wound bobbin for most machines, instructor’s notes and a 90/14 topstitching needle
