April 2020 Meeting

  • Date: February 20, 2021
  • Program: Valentine’s and Welcome Back Meeting
  • Location: Countryside Christian Church, 1919 S. Rock Rd.  Wichita, 67207 (located on the west side of Rock a couple blocks south of Harry Street)
  • Might Want to Bring: Welsh Quilting Styles and Techniques for Today’s Quilts

Well, folks, we are finally getting together!  It’s been a long time and don’t feel like you have to come if you have reservations about meeting, but here’s the plan. (DISCLAIMER:  This is all subject to change.  You will be notified if there are any changes)

We will not be meeting at our usual location. Instead, Anita Brozik  has secured Countryside Christian Church (location above) with seating and tables spaced at least 6 feet apart for our safety.  MASKS ARE REQUIRED! Upon arrival at the church, enter though the third door from the east on the south side of the building

Activity:    Please bring a fat quarter (FQ) with a Valentine’s Day theme.  We will have an exchange for all who want to participate by bringing a FQ.  Fabric will be placed in plastic sandwich bags and placed in a large gift bag we will provide.

Two Gift Certificates will be raffled.  Tickets are $1 each or $5 for 6 tickets.  Bring a visitor and you both get one free ticket!  

Bring your quilts for Show and Share.

More announcements coming!

:  The Board has decided not to charge dues for 2021.  We all paid for 2020 and know how that turned out.  We do encourage you to support any speakers or Zoom meetings for the year that may cost money.  We feel our speakers and workshops should be self-supporting and the more participation we have, the better.

We are looking to fill two Member at Large positions on our Board.  Please think about helping us out.  We need new ideas!

Tia has been featured in numerous quilting magazines, including Classic Modern Quilts, Fons&Porter’s Love of Quilting, Modern Patchwork, and Quilt Mania, just to name a few.

Morning Presentation

The morning presentation includes her process for creating one-of-a-kind quilts that range from traditional to whole-cloth to ultra modern pieces. Expect at minimum of 20 custom quilts to be featured during the presentation. 

Afternoon Workshop

Tia will conduct a workshop from 1:00-4:00 p.m., Welsh Quilting Styles and Techniques for Today’s Quilts, covering:

  • history of Welsh quilting
  • acrylic templates for design
  • simple marking techniques

Students will leave class with marked and quilted samples and a handout filled with mix and match designs to try out on their next quilt.

The cost of the workshop is $45.00. If you haven’t registered and are interested contact brozikanita@gmail.com.
