February 10th Meetings

The newsletter, Prairie Points, is now available to Saskatoon Quilters’ Guild members.

Afternoon Meeting:

The Afternoon Program will feature local fabric artist Monika Kinner, who will talk about her journey over the past 10 years. Check out her web page here: https://www.mysweetprairie.ca/

In her words, she is a “juried fibre/embroidery artist living in the heart of the Canadian prairies. All my work is original and inspired by the world around me. I use my own photos as the basis for my work. I am smitten by the land and sky around me and I hope my love for my homeland shows in my work.”

Evening Meeting:

Crepe Paper Flowers presentation by Brenda Downing.

Come and be amazed by the look of these beautiful life-like botanical forms. Brenda will demonstrate for us how to create some of these very unique petals and leaves to form a beautiful bloom to be used in an arrangement of paper flowers. Hear some of the history and different types of paper and their uses.

It’s Valentine’s week. We invite you to bring a Valentine-themed piece for show and tell. Let’s share those hearts and flowers!

January 13th Meetings

Afternoon Meeting:
Happy New Year to all.   The January 13 Afternoon Program will not be a Garage Sale as previously indicated.  We apologize, but the committee discussed the feasibility in the current meeting room and decided that since space is very limited, having a garage sale would be difficult.  
BUT… We are excited to tell you that Patti Erickson Reynolds will be with us to talk about what makes their store unique.  She will talk about the special classes they have coming up: Building a Better Relationship with your Machine, Easy Precision Piecing,  Machine Applique using Apliquick, and others.  She may even bring the Tobisch Team (husband and wife instructors)
Don’t forget we still have Happy Hour at 12:30.  Come and visit with your fellow guild members

Evening Meeting:
Southwest weaving, Navajo Textiles and Western Canadian ethnic textiles.
This is a presentation you will not want to miss. World renowned sculptor Doug Bentham has been collecting and researching textiles for over 45 years. He will share with us some of his collection and a wealth of information on the history and creative process of the talented women who created them.
