WSQG Featured Quilter!

A few months ago, Wyoming State Quilt Guild “Patchwords” newsletter editor Virginia Ohr asked if I’d like to be a featured quilter. I said sure. I’ve been a member since the guild started in the late 1990s. As I wrote answers to Virginia’s questions, I realized how much of my quilting story happened in Wyoming–as far back as 1980!

Quilt care class at Quilt Wyoming July 13

QW2019-742x1024The Wyoming State Quilt Guild’s Quilt Wyoming annual event will be held in Cheyenne, Wyoming, July 11-14, 2019. Besides national teachers Kimberley Einmo and Kris Vierra, there are 19 regional teachers offering classes.

I will be teaching a half-day class Saturday, July 13, 1-4 p.m., at Laramie County Community College. It is described in the brochure as:

#22 Quilt Care, Barb Gorges. Skill Level: All. (Half Day class – p.m.) Get advice for making strong quilts, caring for them (cleaning, use, display and storage) getting appraisals and insurance and safe shipping. Students may bring a quilt to share and we’ll look for “clues in the calico,” to quote Barbara Brackman. The booklet, “Quilt Care, Construction and Use Advice,” by Barb Gorges, is required or can be purchased at class for $10.

General registration for Quilt Wyoming is $30. Half day classes are $20 for WSQG members and $25 for non-members. Find the complete list of classes and information about housing, meals, quilt show, vendors, etc. in the brochure available at http://wsqg.org/quilt-wyoming-2019/.

Registration begins April 15 (registration forms with earlier postmarks are held back until May 1) and a late registration fee of $10 is charged starting May 31.
