Stuart's A Quilters’ Journey is on April 18th at 7:00 pm. Trish
speaks with humor of her meandering path to the present and where she is
headed, providing motivation for your own journey.
Trish has been quilting, writing patterns, teaching both nationally
and internationally for over 20 years. The range of styles and
techniques she offers is very wide, including but not limited to
traditional piecing, appliqué, stained glass quilts, wool, and art
A frequent guest on network station quilt programs, she has also
been featured in national quilting magazines.
Trish has published over 10 books as well as over 50 package
patterns, created the Quarterly Clubs and is currently delving into
creating contemporary wool projects.
The Allen Quilters' Guild is a 501(c)(3) organization, promoting the
knowledge of all aspects of quilting including the heritage, education,
art and friendship of quilting.
Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at the
First Presbyterian Church of Allen.
There are several activities, workshops and community service projects

Help AQG do it's part for Rally Day! Meet at Ellen S's house at 10:00 on
Saturday, April 20 to cut and fold fat quarters. Each of the 38 member
guilds are contributing to the Rally Day goodie bags. Our goal is 500
fat, so just think how many new fabrics you will receive when you get
your goodie bag on Rally Day!
Thanks for helping AQG meet its goal.
The Community Service Work Night in March was a huge success. The
great support of our members helped complete over 40 catheter bags
to donate. They will be donated to the V.A. Hospital in Bonham later
in the month.
NOTE: Please bring any project you may have
taken home to complete to the April meeting. We do not want to lose
track of these items.
