The York Quilters’ Guild Welcomes New Members!
Guild meetings are currently being held virtually via Zoom at 7 pm usually on the third Thursday of each month
The York Quilters’ Guild welcomes everyone who is interested in quilts. All are welcome, whether your experience level is beginner (you never quilted, but would like to learn more or you just enjoy quilts), intermediate (you have quilted, but would like to improve), or expert (you’re an accomplished quilter who may be willing to share that expertise with others).
Come to a meeting as a guest and see if you would like to join our quilting community. A visit is free, unless there is a paid guest speaker, and then we ask for a $5 donation. You’ll find more information about the Guild under tabs at the top of the website.
If you decide to join, annual dues are $30 if paid by the January 2019 meeting, $35 if paid later. (Members joining
for the first time after July 1 pay $15 for the rest of the year.) Exceptions to the Third Thursday dates are April 25, July 25, Dec. 5 (no meeting in November)
Meeting at Sunset Lane Park, 2458 Sunset Ln, York, PA 17408
Quilting with Panels — Sarah O’Sullivan
Thursday, June 17, 2021
Join us at 6:30 pm June 17 for a presentation about using fabric panels with Guild member Sarah O’Sullivan. The meeting is at Sunset Lane Park
“Fabric panels are everywhere! They draw quilters in with vivid seasonal imagery, compelling color combinations, and licensed characters that are the favorites of our loved ones. But once we bring those panels home, we sometimes get stuck: the sizes are awkward, the math doesn’t work, they’re printed off-grain or we just don’t know where to start. Hopefully, I can help! By sharing my approach to different types of panels, discussing common obstacles quilters face in working with panels, and displaying several of my own quilts that started as panels, I will attempt to inspire participants to move some of those precious panels out of your cabinets and onto your beds.” — Sarah
