Program: My Eclectic Quilt Pageant
Join one of the world's most enthusiastic personalities for oooh's, aaah's and laughter to learn a plethora of tips to increase accuracy and add fresh and interesting details with piping, prairie points, heavy threads and embellishments. See how to take show pieces to new levels and add charming surprises to simple pieces. Susan Cleveland will share real live quilts with close ups through the projector so you're sure to see oodles of detail. You may recognize many quilts as winner's in AQS Paducah Shows and International Quilt Festivals in Houston. She is a very popular speaker and teacher and her schedule fills up years in advance.
Speaker: Susan Cleveland
Susan's enthusiasm for quilting is said to be contagious! In classes she keeps an upbeat and sometimes wild setting. Her quilts have received many awards in International competitions since 1997 where judges have commented on the workmanship and original stye with unique designs. She is thrilled to include charming, unexpected elements such as special threads, prairie points, piping and creating binding techniques. She invented the Groovin' Piping Trimming Tool which is used to trim piping seam alliances, and the Prairie Pointer Pressing Tool. In 2010 she was named Minnesota Quilter of the Year!

We collected over 100 pounds of food, children's shoes and over $260 for use in three of the food pantries in the area; Beaufort HELP, Bluffton Self Help and Sandalwood Community Food Pantry. Thank you to everyone who participated and to the member leaders.
Community Service also provided 20 quilts to be distributed at Bluffton Self Help.
Sandalwood Community Food Pantry said " Your support allows us to keep focused on feeding the Hungry as we move closer to our Dream of building a Safe Resilient Pantry to call home."
