From the President’s Desk…

Thank you for stopping by and visiting Prairie Star Quilters Guild’s website! It is the start of a new month, and I would like to share some Guild events with you. . . .

PSQG has more than fifty Bees with varieties limited only by our members’ imaginations – hand quilting, wool, art, long-arm and so on! We love our Bees and our Bee sisters! If you are looking for a Bee or more information on starting or joining a Bee, visit our Beekeeper, Cindy Krelle at cindykrelle@aol.com.

Prolific quilter Nancy Mahoney is visiting our Guild Chapter meetings on August 25th and 26th. Yes, we have 2 Guild meetings each month. Members of PSQG have the opportunity to attend one or both Chapter meetings. And, many do attend both meetings as the lectures often times are different and our Show & Tell always has different quilts and wonderful stories. If you find you are curious about PSQG, come and visit us at one of our Chapter meetings! You will find more information regarding our meetings on this website or contact Chris Berry at cberry1022@att.net about joining the Guild. Nancy will host a full day machine applique workshop on Monday, August 25, and will debut her new workshop, Twirly Swirly, on Tuesday, August 26. For more information on this and other workshops we offer, please visit the Programs and Workshops tab, again, on this website.

Thanks for visiting with me, and do stop by anytime for more PSQG news!!
