We will NOT be accepting book or magazine donations until next guild year, September, 2018. Storage space is a problem for donated books. We only have the library cart for storage.
Do you want a particular quilt or craft book? Please contact Mary, Linda or me with your recommendations for books for HAAQG. We would love to hear your suggestions.
The Fons & Porter magazine subscription form will be available for another month. You can renew your subscription or start a new one for $15 annually.
Book Review – Free Motion Meandering - A Beginner’s Guild to Machine Quilting by Angela Walters
I love Angela Walters, her Midnight Quilt Show youtube videos and her books. This new book does not disappoint. In Angela speak, the book starts with basics, then gets you quilting quickly. The Building Blocks chapter includes Angela’s theme chant – practice, practice, practice. (Yes, I know but why can’t I do it perfectly the first time???) Other chapters cover quilting patterns; Basic Meander, Loopy Meander, Swirl Meander, Swirl Hook, Paisley, Leafy, Feather and Improv Quilting.
Also, I’m looking forward to chatting with 3 or 4 of our HAAQG members who went on a quilting cruise with Angela Walters. What fun! Cruise adventures by day and quilting at night.
