February 20, 2013 Karin Tauber presents Creative Playtime with Visual Texture. Visual Texture is important in the creative process of each textile artist. This fast paced and fun play time approaches a variety of patterns and designs. Short work sessions will help participants to overcome their “fear of placement” and perfection. Let’s walk together with others on the path to creativity and give ourselves permission to “Play”!

Supply list:
Choose 5 -10 fabrics (or the more, the merrier) with different colors, pattern or texture, for example: large prints, small prints, abstract, flowers, lines, bold prints and subtle prints… Make 1 BLACK & WHITE copy of each of your fabrics (8” x 10” = page size) on a copy machine. Check if your copies “read” light, or medium or dark. A variety in values is helpful. You do not need to bring the fabrics, just the copies. Make a few extra copies if you want to swap with others. 5 or more pages of white paper, glue stick, paper scissor s(not too big or too small, one you feel comfortable to cut with)

March 18, 2013 Silent Auction. Calling all members! Get into those sewing rooms and clean out your treasures that are no longer of use to you but may be coveted by fellow guild members. We will have our semi annual fund raiser at this meeting. We will also have a table of home made goodies for you to bid on. These items can have a minimum bid and if it is not met, you keep your item or donate it to the boutique. Items for this table might include homemade jams or baked goods, items like table runners, place mats, potholders, etc. or perhaps you would like to auction off a service such as binding a quilt or making a quilt label. Of course, remember to bring your mad money as well so you can take home some treasures yourself. Always a fun meeting with lots of time to socialize and get acquainted. Please bring guests!

**** Workshop Policies ****

Your place in a workshop is secured once you pay the workshop fee. A minimum number of paid registrations must be reached before a commitment will be made to the instructor. There will be a deadline for this decision. If the workshop is not held for lack of registrations, all class fees will be returned to those members having paid. Once the commitment is made to the instructor to hold the workshop, no refunds can be given. However, you are free to sell your space to another person. Please make out all checks to the Old Church Gallery Quilters Guild. Thank you.
