Sun Peaks Quilters and Barriere Community Quilters would like to invite you to join us at Sun Peaks on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 for a day all about quilting.
Merchants Mall is open 9:00am - 5:00pmGathering of the Guilds takes place 10:00am - 4:00pm
The theme is ‘Flowers in the Mountains’. With this theme, we have selected a ‘snowball block’ to create our charity quilts. If you want to help us create lots of quilts for women and children in need, cancer patients and victims that have lost their possessions to fire, please bring your 9 inch finished blocks (9 ½” unfinished, instructions attached) with you to the Gathering. We hope to have some of the quilts, or pictures of the quilts made from the donated blocks to Rivervalley Quilters in 2012, on display during the Gathering. If you have any questions during the event, you will see each of the organizers wearing a flowered hat if you.
We can confirm that one of our feature speakers is Susan Purney Mark, Designer, Teacher and Author (www.susanpm.com or www.fabricimagery.com). Susan has taught in many different areas and at many different events, including at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. Susan has promised some really exiting quilts in her trunk show. Trunk Show: 'Just Do It! - a Quilters Journey'It's said that the journey of a lifetime begins with a single step...find out how Susan Purney Mark fell off the cliff! Fron the humble beginnings making Barbie clothes (Ken went naked!) to designer, teacher and author, it's been a fun filled bumpy road strewn with fabric, pins and thread. As quilters, we never tire of the journey... but where are we headed?
Gathering Registration is open to all interior quilt guilds and registration is limited to 250 people.
