A Note from Our President

Want to learn to quilt?

Well, you're in luck, because we want to teach you!  Grayson Country Quilters has a fun and productive 2017 planned, and we'd like to start the year with a class for beginning quilters.  It's free! You provide the sewing machine and supplies, and we'll provide teachers and enthusiasm.  If you'd like to know more, come to our first meeting on Wednesday, January 18, at 6:00 p.m. in the conference room of the Arts and Events Center in Blanding. Or call me at 678-3305 (Kathy Hurst) for details.

If you decide to join, dues are $20 per year, and we meet on the third Wednesday of most months. (Sometimes we do sew weekends)  Our meetings generally consist of lots of visiting, door prizes, birthday gifts, demonstrations, show and tell, quilting trips and refreshments.

This year we have fun plans that include classes for beginners, weekend sew-in's, a youth quilt camp, the July 4th quilt show, a summer luncheon, a 3 day quilting retreat in a beautiful cabin, and a Christmas dinner and party.  There will be demonstrations and visiting experts and a year-long charity project.  Quilters of all levels of expertise and ages are welcome and needed.

We'd love for you to join us and bring a friend.  Mark your calendars for January 18 at 6:00 p.m. at the Arts and Events Center.  Visit our Facebook page also!

2017 GCQ President
