In February, WQG will host artist Christine  Martell.  She describes her work as follows:  "As a professional artist, I work in a variety of mediums. My current work involves photography and free-motion machine embroidery to create fiber artworks that bring to life my love of nature. Trees have been a lifetime love affair but as I travel, I find myself becoming attached to the all the natural images around me, the ocean, the sunrise and sunset, flowers, and mountains. Each place has its own natural backdrop of beauty. I spend as much time photographing and editing as I do sewing the images. My current work is cross-disciplinary allowing me to combine my love of photography, digital art, printmaking, and textiles to create truly one of a kind expressions."  Read more about Christine and see examples of her work at https://christinemartell.com 
Local professional quilter and pattern maker Kelly Cole will join us at the March meeting.  Kelly is inspired by all things vintage, from farmhouse kitchens to feedsack fabrics and everything in between.  Read more about Kelly on her blog at http://bluebirdsews.blogspot.com

Cynthia Brunz of Eugene, OR will be our speaker at the April meeting.  Cyndy is a long arm quilter, quilt designer, sewer and leader of a local effort called "Project Quilt," a group that meets under Cyndy's guidance to create items that are donated to various area organizations.  She will be teaching workshops to the guild as well.  See more at http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.com

Scrappy quilter, designer and author Tonya Alexander brings her unique style and designs to our May guild meeting.  Tonya's publications include "Stash Lab: Simple Solutions for Scrap Quilts," several different "Stash Lab" patterns and patterns in many quilt magazines and books.  Tonya's designs can be seen on her website at https://stashlabquilts.com

November is UFO (Un-Finished Object) month.  Watch for details, but start pulling those PIGS (Projects In Grocery Sacks) and PhDs (Projects Half Done) out of the closets, bins and boxes where they are hiding!

In December we will enjoy our annual holiday party.
