November 18 – Guild Meeting – THIS THURSDAY!!

Our guild meeting night is this week!

Our Zoom guild meeting is 11/18/21 & the meeting is wherever YOU are.

We’ll open it up at our usual 7pm for a quick visit & we’ll start at 7:15.

We’re excited to share with you – we’ve got a guest speaker this month!

Cindy Gristela will be joining us.
From her studio in Reston, Va her abstract quilts are designed improvisationally without a preconceived pattern, a little bit like jazz music. She does all of her stitching on a machine, but it is entirely hand driven. There is no computer program or marking ahead of time. She stitches the motifs freehand using the needle and thread of the machine like a pencil or brush.

She is a self taught fiber artist but comes from a long line of women who have expressed themselves using needle and thread. She has a BA in Fine Arts from the College of William and Mary and an MBA from George Washington University.

She is the Author of Artful Improv: Explore Color Recipes, Building Blocks & Free Motion Quilting, and a new book, Adventures in Improv Quilts: Master Color, Design & Construction.
