WORKSHOP in Panama City


The St. Andrew Bay Quilters' Guild has a workshop scheduled with Kris Hebert on 15 April, the dreaded TAX day.  Kris Hebert is a shop owner/teacher.  The workshop will be in Panama City at the Best Western across from the mall.  She will teach a foundation piecing class, several different fish designs.  A few spaces are available.  Anyone interested should contact me (pweg@aol.com) for more information.






Our regular meeting of TAS in Crystal River will be April 24, May 22 and June 26. Contact Mabel Toth   mjtoth@hitter.net.   Phone 352-746-9861.




TRUNK SHOW in Crystal River


Judy Niemyer's trunk show will be in Tomorrow's Treasure's Quilt Shop the first three weeks in April.  This is to celebrate our second anniversary of opening the shop.  The quilts include A Garden for my Wedding Ring, A Wedding Star and Shattered Glass.  She may be sending more.


Tomorrow's Treasure's Quilt Shop is at 650 N. Citrus Ave., Crystal River, Fl. Hours are M-Sat 10 to 5.  Phone 352-795-2600.  Bayfest is the 8th and 9th and the street will be closed.  So people will need to walk in on those two days.






In January 2001, the Art League of Marco Island will have a gallery show of quilts made by the Tennessee Valley Quilters, a guild of 700 members in east TN.  There will be four daylong workshops given by their members, from January 3 through January 6. (subjects will be announced shortly). There will be a reception and lecture, open to the public, on Sunday, January 7th. Lois Brater, chair of the event has asked me to contact our guild, since she does not "do" e-mail.  She will be happy to talk to anyone needing more info, and will gladly send along any more information you might want.


Lois, who lived in Oak Ridge for many years, has a longtime relationship with the TN Valley Quilters, and has planned several trips for the guild. This summer, they are going on a two-week tour of New England to see quilts and to shop. The trip will leave from Knoxville, TN, and there are a few vacancies on the bus,  if anyone is interested. I just decided to add this info, I do not know the dates until Lois is back in town.  They can contact Lois Brater at 941-394-1829. (She is currently out-of-town, will be back 4/08)
