March Meeting

The March meeting of the Vance Quilts R Us guild was a productive meeting.  March is membership renewal month.  We welcome two new members, Tammy Williamson and Monica Sleboda.  Two guests, Patricia Shepard and Pauline O'Neal, were in attendance. 

Guild members decided to move forward with a block for the Tar River Quilt Trail.  The block will look like our guild pin and will be mounted on the Perry Library, as the library was the first meeting place of the guild.  

Thanks to Kathy Solomon, we now have a portable sound system to use at our meetings.  The better to hear you, my dear!

Faith Smith lead the evening's program.  She showed members an English paper piecing technique.  How many hexies have you made?

Join us for our April meeting with Eileen Davison showing us how to "paint" a landscape with fabric.  You will need to bring a small canvas, fabric scraps and permanent fabric glue.
