1. Next Guild Meeting - Tuesday, February 19th -  6:30 pm at the Cedar Hill Recreation Center.

2. Program - Leo Ransom - Portrait Quilting and Workshop. Leo was here a few years ago and gave a most interesting presentation of his applique portraiture. He also talked of his journey from making quilts to the artistry of the portraits. It will be most interesting to see where his journey has taken him to today. He also will be doing a workshop at the rec center from 2-5 before the meeting. Workshop is $35.


  • Small pair of tweezers
  • Ink pen or Fine point Sharpie
  • 4’’ pointed embroidery or applique scissors (Leo uses the ones with a curved tip)

  • 1 yard Heat N Bond (Leo prefers the Heat N Bond Lite because it is easier to sew through when quilting
