Since our January meeting has moved to a virtual format, we will not be sharing our favorite tools and go to quilt patterns this month but will push that out to our February meeting (hopefully in person) so please hold off until February to share your favorites at that time.
We have exciting news about a speaker now scheduled for our January meeting. Jane Hauprich, award winning quilter and longarm ambassador, will be speaking at our January meeting! She will be sharing her journey from beginning quilter to longarm specialist. Please make sure that you are logged into the meeting before she begins speaking at 7pm. You will not want to miss her presentation. After her presentation we will be having our normal business meeting and introduce our new board slate (please remember that we have several positions still open) as well as some old and new business to discuss.
Watch your emails on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning for your Zoom invitation.
Our meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. The meeting location is Zion Lutheran Church, 11007 Book Road, Naperville, IL. Guests are welcome to attend any program meeting for a small fee. Social time begins at 6:30pm with the meeting beginning promptly at 7:00pm and ending at 9:00pm. The evening includes a business meeting, a lecture, and Show and Tell.
The Pride of the Prairie Quilters was founded in 1984 by a small group of women who shared an interest in quilting. The purpose of the organization is to develop and promote an interest in the art of quilting. The guild presents programs of interest to members, educates through lectures and workshops and encourages philanthropic activities. The guild is open to all who share this interest in quilting. All levels of experience are welcome!
