Annual Holiday Party.  We want you to bring the first quilt you ever made and what you feel is your best quilt.  We hope to do a display or show and tell that lets us each share our quilting journeys.  Sign ups will take place at our December meeting.


February 20, 2020 – Kathy Herbach

Kathleen will present a trunk show of her work. She has been quilting since 1993 when her mother introduced her to foundation flip and sew blocks. Kathy was hooked and started watching Simply Quilts and other shows for inspiration and techniques. She has sailed on a quilting cruise and taken two trips to Japan to study (and purchase fabric). Kathy has taught locally at Pieceful Hearts, Prairie Shop Quilts and Quilters Quest. She was also part of Debbie Caffrey’s winning “Iron Quilter” team at the Chicago International Quilt Festival.
Guests are always welcome at POP’s guild meetings, which are held at Zion Lutheran Church, 11007 Book Road, Naperville, IL 60564. The guest fee is $10. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the meeting begins at 7:00 pm.
On Friday, February 21, 2020 from 9am until noon, Kathleen will teach her Beyond Basic Bindings workshop. Learn how to jazz up your quilt with super skinny (straight!) borders, piping, scallop insert, 2 fabric bindings where the front and back are different fabrics/colors, machine applied flange binding, and custom decorative bindings.
There are openings in Kathleen’s class at this time. The cost is $35 for POP members and $45 for non-members. See POP’s website for workshop registration policies.
