October 14, 15 & 21 – Tina Curran
October you ask? How is this year passing so quickly? It will be here before we expect it and we are prepared!
Tina Curran will be with us in October. Tina is an art quilter and teacher, showing and selling her quilts worldwide. She has won numerous awards for her wonderful work. You may want to check out the galleries on her website, tinacurran.com.
Here’s what Tina says:
My interest in making art quilts was jump-started by seeing my dear friend Sara take a variety of patterned fabrics, cut them into pieces, and combine them in such an artistic way. One of the great thrills with this art form is that my options are as infinite as those of a painter working on canvas – landscapes, portraits, geometric patterns, abstract impressions, etc.
Tina will be joining us via Webinar on October 14 at 10 am. She’ll be sharing “My Excellent Adventure as a Quilter Trunk Show”. She’ll share dozens of quilts with the goal of encouraging us all as we see how her skills evolved and realize she, too, was once a beginner.
Like our other Webinars, it will last about an hour and will be totally free to our members. An email with the Webinar link will be sent to our members Monday, October 12.
Tina’s adorable “Whimsical Garden” will be our workshop project. We’ll be learning techniques for creating the background and using fusible applique to create our gardens. Our finished wall hanging will measure 24”x24”.
Thursday, October 15, Tina will bring us the first half of the virtual workshop via Zoom. We’ll learn techniques for piecing our backgrounds before adding our flowers. Tina will be teaching us from 9 am-12 pm. Attendees will receive an email with a link to the workshop.
Thursday, October 21, one week later, we’ll meet again to work on the flowers for our gardens. Again, we’ll Zoom from 9 am-12 pm. Again, a link will be provided.
I’ll email a supply list to all attendees.
The fee for this workshop is $30, which includes both days. It will be limited to the first 30 members who email and send me their payment. In the event we fill up, there will be a waiting list.
Please join us for a great time of watching, listening, sewing and fun.

November 11 – 12 Cathy Van Bruggen
Our own Cathy Van Bruggen will be our guest in November. Cathy is a wonderful applique designer and teacher. She’ll walk us through the needle-turn process teaching us all the skills we need for her “brand-new-for-us” Baltimore Spring design.
Wed, Nov 11, at 10 am, Cathy will be teaching us, “All About Applique”. Guild members will receive a link to the event on Monday, Nov 9.
At our workshop Thurs, Nov 12, Cathy will teach us all we need to know for the lovely Baltimore Spring block. I haven’t done much hand applique myself and I’m really looking forward to learning all the different skills in this class. Here’s what Cathy says:
“In this class, we will learn the basics of needle-turn applique and so much more! The Baltimore Spring class project will offer unusual embellishment techniques such as ruched flowers, yo-yo flowers, 3-dimensional highlights, and how to create little creatures. This class is for all skill levels. There will be a class kit that includes the pattern, fabric, and embellishments.
Join us for a day of fun and inspiration”
The workshop will be from 9 am-3 pm with a lunch break at about noon. All the supplies we need to complete the block will be included in a required kit. The workshop is still at our reduced price of $30 and the required kit is $20.
To enroll, you should first email me, email@example.com then send me your check, made out to OGQG, for $50. For your convenience, you may pay by credit card. You just need to call me with your credit card info to be instantly enrolled in the class. Note that there will be a $2 convenience charge on each transaction.
