Florida Quilt Network - Newsletter #29

July 5, 2000




I'll be heading out in a few days for a 3 week odyssey in our Odyssey (Honda).  I plan on hitting lots of wonderful quilt and fabric shops and I'm REALLY looking forward to finally getting to Mary Jo's in Gastonia.  Any other quilt shop suggestions for the SouthEast??


Feel free to continue to email to me your news, I'll gather it all up and mail it out in August.


I received this post recently:


Our quilt club is not interested in holding a quilt show

and is having a hard time supporting speakers/teachers. 

Any suggestions as to how our guild can make money

to support our programs?


I'd like to suggest that if you would like to discuss this and other timely Florida Quilt topics, there is a list service just for you.  Check out http://www.egroups.com/community/FloridaQuilters to sign up.  The quilter who sent me the above post will be looking forward to your suggestions.  How does your guild make money?


If you picked up SSQA business cards at the Gainesville meeting, on the SSQA business card, Betty Slaughter's area code should be 863....


Here's a website that not only lists quilts that are lost or stolen, but also has an incredible index of links to other quilt related sites:  www.lostquilt.com.  Check out "Link Categories" on the bottom left side.


This next website is handy; it allows you to print out pages that you color to plan your next quilt.



I just received a great looking Seminar brochure from Jinny Beyer.  If 5 days of quilting with Jinny at Hilton Head sound like your kind of vacation, check out www.jinnybeyer.com/seminar. They will be putting the 2001 info up on the website soon.  (It's Jan 31-Feb 4, 2001)

Do any of you have a quilt made before 1990 that is either a lemoyne star or variable star pattern using pastels, preferably solids? Of particular interest are quilts with NO sashing (stars are touching), set in straight blocks (not on point), and each star is a single color.  Pictures or the quilt itself will do.  An importer is claiming this pastel design is hers, and has taken it to court.  If this person wins, this creates serious problems for us as quilters as we will have limitations placed on our color choices.  If you or anyone you know has a quilt that fits this description, pleas contact Bonnie Browning at AQS, Phone # 270-898-7903 or email at <showchm@aqsquilt.com>.


Pass the word for the search for this type of quilt.  Since pastels do not photograph well, there are not many pastels documented in the literature.  Quilters throughout the country will appreciate the help. This issue goes to court in October 2000, so quick action is needed.

        Thanks to everyone for your help.


If you know of lists in other states, pass this on...thanks a lot.     Kathy Ward

Our local Chapter, "The Heart and Hand Chapter" of The Applique Society in Crystal River, Fl. have been invited to display some of our work at the Citrus County Central Ridge Library,524 W. Roosevelt Blvd, Beverly Hills, Fla.

We will be showing a variety of wall hangings and two quilts (these will change each week during the month.)

On one of the quilt listservs I belong to, a quilter told us about the Smithsonian in DC. 


"Twice a month they take a limited number of people (I think either 8 or 12) behind the scenes into the storage room where they keep the quilts on a private tour.


To call and sign up for the tour, call (202) 357-1889.  If you can't get in, but are in DC on a Tuesday, try going to the Museum of American History, find the information desk on the Constitution Avenue side (the north side), and ask about the behind the scenes quilt tour.  We only had four people signed up, and I think there might be a good chance you could get into the tour."
