QIS Member Wins Red Ribbon!!

Misty Mountain Quilt Show 

Blairsville, GA

We are so proud of our own Claudia Gray! She worked a long time to produce this beautiful quilt made from a One Block Wonder Pattern. Claudia named this Black Beauty. 
Black Beauty was quilted on a long arm machine  by one of our members Jerita Hunt.
You can see why she won a ribbon on this gorgeous quilt! We are so proud of this award!!

Starting a New Year for Quilters in Stitches!

Welcome to our Quilters in Stitches Blog. We have chosen this method of making our presence known in the quilting community. We are starting a new year (Oct. 1, 2015) with a whole new set of officers and committee chairmen (or chair ladies)! This blog is intended for all who love to QUILT and who want to be connected with those who share your passion for this art form. Each month we  publish a great newsletter for our members, but if you are interested in seeing more of what we do, email us and request a copy. We'd be happy to send it you. 
Our guild is a small group, but that just means you get to know everyone quicker. We do projects involving all active members such as Yellow Ribbon quilts for our servicemen, annual raffle quilt, and other donation quilts. We have wonderful guest speakers at most of our meetings, as well as offering great classes from some of the best quilt teachers in our area. We promise to put a smile on your face and some new ideas in your head when you see our monthly parade of Show and Tell quilts! See our photos on this Blog. We'll be adding to them each month, so be sure and stop by for some inspiration!! Again, welcome all that love to quilt and sew. 
PS Beginners are welcomed and encouraged! If you have a fabric addiction, you need our company!! 
We meet on the third Monday of each month. 
Fellowship starts at 6:30 PM, meeting at 7 PM.
