Welcome to Quintessential Quilters!
Welcome to our site. If you have questions, please contact us.
Quintessential Quilters in-person meetings have been cancelled due to the pandemic and health department guidelines. We ARE having monthly meetings online!
Our special guest speaker at the October 8 meeting is a lecture/trunk show by Cassandra Ireland Beaver from Urbana, Ohio. Cassandra is an award winning quilter, teacher, and designer. She was featured recently in an exhibit at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. For more information about Cassandra, see her website at TheNotSoDramaticLife.com.
We are planning several activities to keep us connected even though we are not gathering monthly. A mug rug swap in November and a holiday ornament swap in December. In October we are also beginning a 9-month mystery quilt with clues delivered monthly by email. The mystery is open to all current members and it’s just a one-time, $10 fee. We are hoping to continue our quilt retreats later in the year, and possibly organize virtual sew-ins between meetings just to keep in touch.
