2005 Program and Workshop Schedule

The monthly meeting of QUILT offers a range of activities for quilters and quilt lovers. Meetings begin at 7:00 at the Holiday Inn in Springdale, AR unless otherwise announced. Generally we schedule the Program first, followed by a short business meeting. We conclude each meeting with members and guests showing quilts at Show And Tell.
Prior to the meetings some people browse the guild library or shop with the local vendor invited to set up that month. Others choose to take advantage of the mini lesson offered at 6:00 before the meeting by a guild member. Everyone is invited to enjoy the buffet at the hotel.

You will be inspired by the talented quilt teachers, if you choose to participate in any of the workshops offered by the program presenters.

Jaynette Huff
Jaynette Huff�s interest in quilting began more than twenty five years ago when she encountered a group of women in an antique store sitting around an old pot-bellied stove. They were laughing and having such fun. When asked what they were doing, they responded, �we�re quilting! Want to learn?� The answer was an immediate �Yes!� Suddenly her life took a turn down another path as quilting began to take up more and more of her attention and focus. E-mail Jaynette at: [email protected]

Paula Mariedaughter
My passion for quilting as women’s art includes a variety of time periods and styles. My early quilting mentor was Lila Rostenberg after I discovered her shop Quilt Your Heart Out in 1994. I joined the Guild that same year. I have been involved in many Guild projects including entering a total of 53 quilts in the five quilt shows we have produced since 1994. Additionally I co-coordinated special exhibits for the last three guild quilt shows. Like most quilters, I make quilts for family and friends and special causes. Some quilts become part of my portfolio/permanent collection. Quilting allows me to express my aesthetic preferences and, at times, my political views. In either case I get to play with fabric!

Lerlene Nevaril
Lerlene Nevaril has been interested in needle arts since the age of five when her grandmother taught her to make doll clothes on a treadle sewing machine. She went from there to make her own clothes, and then to knitting, embroidery, and needlepoint. In 1979 she picked up a copy of Quilter�s Newsletter Magazine and has been quilting ever since. Lerlene published her first quilting book, Hidden Blocks Quilts, with C&T; Publishing in November 2002. She is currently working on a second Hidden Blocks book, due in the summer of 2005.

Lynne Hagmeier
Lynne Hagmeier, pictured to the right, learned to quilt about 15 years ago at a local quilt shop in Salina, Kansas, called The Quilting Bee, while working there part time. Her love of quilting evolved from other interests over the years; from cross-stitch & painting to home decorating & antiques. In 2000, Moda fabrics offered Lynne an opportunity to design fabric for their growing company. What a thrill to create a line of fabrics in exactly the colors you want & then make a quilt you’ve designed with that new fabric.
