Several interesting events in June worth checking out!
Come check out the quilt bombing on the Iron Horse Trail in Danville. Hosted by Wooden Gate Quilts, quilts will be hung on the fence of the Iron Horse Trail that runs near the shop. The viewing area is between Prospect Ave. and Linda Mesa from 9:30-5:30, weather permitting.
KPFA Summer Crafts Fair
Craneway Pavilion, Richmond
This is a free arts and crafts fair with a “Quilts and Quilters” Exhibit and Sale.
What are we up to?
Two of our members, Darci and Amelia, are working on a sister sewing group that focuses on garment sewing. I have to say, we love seeing the garments our members made at our quilt meetings! However, if you want a more focused garment group, contact us and we will put you in touch with the new East Bay Stitchers group!
Many of us are interested in a Bay Area – wide modern quilters meet up! Stay tuned for more details for a possible Fall meet up at the de Young. Which incidentally, will coincide with an exciting upcoming exhibit, On The Grid: Textiles and Minimalism.
As always, Show and Tell was a real treat and super inspiring. I didn’t end up taking any pictures (low phone battery, dang it) but you can always check out our Flickr page, the Instagram hashtag #ebmq, or come to our next meeting on June 28th from 6:30-8:30pm at A Verb For Keeping Warm!
