Judy Niemeyer Paper Piecing Method with Roger Kerr from Quilting From the Heart, Camrose, Friday to Monday, November 8-11.Class participants can pick any pattern by Judy (check out quiltworx.com). Roger will put together a kit, on request or select your own fabric. The patterns are extremely well done and very clear, with all of the problems solved for you before you begin. It is a fantastic technique for paper piecing and extremely accurate. If you only learn one new technique this year, THIS is the class you should take. The class is also extremely affordable (at only $40), which is heavily subsidized by the Guild. If you were to take this class anywhere else, it would be a minimum of $150, so a terrific opportunity for all Guild members. Donna D has secured the Social Room in her condo for the class (thanks Donna!) and it is a lovely and bright room with plenty of space for each participant. Chris will bring samples to the next guild meeting so that people get a better idea of patterns available.
Learning opportunities for members are offered throughout the year. The goal of the Program Committee is to:
Note: Members get priority registration in classes. Remaining spaces may be made available to non-members at the discretion of the Programs Coordinator.
