       How small quilts helped me find my artistic voice” by Cheryl Sleboda
  
       Time - 6:30 pm Social/7:00 pm Meeting 
             
Cheryl Sleboda is an award-winning fiber artist, author, and
teacher who creates original and contemporary designs for
her art quilts, using electronic components,  as well as fusibles,
yarns, jewels, sequins, beads, and various other media to
embellish her work.
  
Her quilts are all pieced, appliqued, and quilted by machine,
but her recent work has incorporated many traditional heirloom fabric manipulation techniques. Her themes and subjects vary, from simple shapes, abstracts, to realistic interpretations of still lifes and portraits.

SEPTEMBER


Sept 12  - Guild Meeting:  Lecture & Trunk Show: “Quilts to ‘Die’ for” by Ebony Love
                  Time - 6:30 pm Social/7:00 pm Meeting
   

Ebony created LoveBug Studios as an outlet for her creative
energy and to feed her soul. There are many facets to her
business, but she tries to focus around three major areas:
Cut. Quilt. Love. It's a tagline that really encompassed all
that she wants to do and be.
 
Ebony considers herself a traditional quilter who uses

modern tools and color palettes to interpret her artistic
voice, and of course, if it can’t be die cut, it isn’t getting made!
