Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild

The Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild meets the second Saturday of the month at 10:00AM.
They meet at Saint Andrew Presbyterian Church at 8231 Callaghan Road, San Antonio.

I'll be there with my lecture Quilt Toppings;

Wanted quilters seeking new ways to express their creativity. This lecture taps into the strong emerging trend toward embellishment of quilt surfaces. Paint, foil, paint sticks, thread, crayons, buttons, ribbons and beads are all fun, easy ways to add that final design element to traditional and non-traditional quilts. 

The Friday before the meeting we will be playing with Decorative Thread;

Thread is no longer a ‘Plain Jane’ necessity - it’s now available in many luscious colors and types. Steering your way through the sea of threads out there can be a bit daunting. Experiment while you learn how to match thread to the appropriate needle, make the tension setting your best friend and troubleshoot your way to fun and fancy sewing.

Saturday after the meeting we will make Eye Candy Quilts; 
Quick, colorful and addictive, these stunning, joyfully embellished mini-quilts are so much fun to make they should be illegal! If instant gratification appeals, this is the class for you. Finished quilt will be about 2 ½” x 3”.

The Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild was organized on May 3, 1980. The current membership is 250 enthusiastic and talented quilters.I can't wait to meet them all!
