Candace Kitner-Perry from the Schwenkfelder Library


Monday, April 10, 2017 - 7:00 PM

Candace Kitner-Perry from the Schwenkfelder Library will speak. 

The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center, with its internationally recognized collections and research facilities, engages visitors in exploration of the themes of religious freedom, tolerance, migration, and heritage in their own lives and the lives of their families through the stories of the Schwenkfelders and the Pennsylvania Germans of the Perkiomen region - people whose bonds of faith, family, and community tell a fundamental American story.

Show n Tell

Monday, February 13, 2017 7:00 P.M.

The program for our February gathering is "A Night of Inspiration". In an effort to revitalize the "show and tell” portion of our guild meeting, each member is asked to bring with them to the meeting one quilt they have made. This quilt can be a recent completion or a favorite from long ago. (We ask that you NOT bring a quilt the guild has already seen). You will have the opportunity to share with the group what inspired you to make the quilt. Was it color or fabric choice? The person you were gifting? perhaps it was a challenge you just couldn't turn down? Whatever the reason we want to hear "your story" of why you made this quilt.

Holiday Gathering

Monday, December 12, 2016 - 6:30 P.M

Lots going on for our meeting on December 12.  Don’t forget it begins a half hour earlier at 6:30 pm.  Can’t wait to sample all of the delicious goodies that everyone will bring and share.  If you are making something and think that others may want the recipe, please bring the recipe with you or email it to me and I will add a recipe section to the newsletter in January. 

We have many requests for donations to not only the church’s food larder, but also for Laurel House.  Please consider bringing something to the December meeting for both of these worthy causes.. See the newsletter for all the details.

Welcome

Tucker Trimmer? Wing Clipper? Is County Line Quilters Guild going into the exercise business?

Monday, February 8, 2016 14 - 7:00pm


Tucker Trimmer?  Wing Clipper?  Is County Line Quilters Guild going into the exercise business?  Heaven forbid!  No, these are just two of the Studio 180 tools that Ellen Cicak & Sisters will be demonstrating at the February 8th guild meeting.  And after they show us how to use these amazing tools, they will show us some of their beautiful quilts that they made using these techniques.  Then there will be a test (sort of!) and an opportunity to purchase these handy dandy tools.  Please join us at 7 PM for a fun evening.
