Lincoln Quilters Guild 

August Speaker - Monday 8/8/22

Are you ready for our August program and workshop?  Dana Jones will be presenting Pagtinabangay: The Quilts and Quiltmakers of Caohagan Island.  You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quilt makers of Caohagan Island. You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts - plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quilt makers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. 

More information about the speaker

August Workshop - Tuesday 8/9/22

Dana's workshop will be held on Tuesday morning (1/2 day) at the College View Seventh-Day Adventist Church - 4801 Prescott Avenue (Hartland Hall A).  (NOTE: location change).  The title of the workshop is Fabulous Freeform.  This improvisational cutting and piecing technique created by Pam Rocco, formerly a columnist for Quilters Newsletter, is fun and quick. Each student’s quilt will be a unique creation.
