February - Suzi Parron

Suzi Parron travels full time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations--whoever would like to hear more about barn quilts!

Her new book, “Following the Barn Quilt Trail,” is now available on her website along with details about painting and joining the barn trail movement.

Her presentation in February will take you on a journey along the quilt trail, beginning with the very first barn quilt, which stemmed from Donna Sue Groves in Ohio and her wish to honor her mother's quilting art. The presentation features over one hundred stunning photographs of barn quilts, some of which rival cloth quilts in their intricacy. You will hear stories of some of the individuals who have painted quilt blocks to honor loved ones or their local culture, along with a few humorous anecdotes. The presentation is both informative and entertaining, as Suzi explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as this movement continues to expand.

March - Mickey DuPre

“Let’s Get Hexed!”— March 17 our guild speaker, Mickey DePre

While known for years as an art quilter, Mickey Depre was secretly a dedicated piecer, at home making bed quilts for her family. If you look closely at her art quilts, you will see traditional piecing found its way into many of them in the form of backgrounds. After all, it is Mickey's saying that "There is enough fabric in the studio to make both art and traditional quilts."

We’re excited to welcome Mickey’s newest lecture “Let’s Get Hexed,” an interactive lecture/demo/audience participa-tion event that includes a small trunk show of English Paper Pieced quilts, some made by Mickey, some antique. She will take the audience thru basting a Hexie hands on as we actually baste one Hexie during the PowerPoint presenta-tion that will be filled with tips and tricks about English Paper Piecing! She will provide the EPP papers. The audience needs to bring two 3.5 squares of fabric, one pin, one needle, basting thread and small scissors. Thimble is optional. Let’s Get Hexed Together!
