QUILT North meets on the second Monday of the month in September and on the first Monday of the month from October to June. There are no meetings in July and August. See meeting dates and speakers below.
Quilt North will be meeting virtually by Zoom until further notice. We are requesting that members register for the meeting each month. Generally, a meeting will consist of a speaker, guild business, and “show and tell” by our members (it’s virtual now; read about it after the info about our November speaker). Block of the Month is continuing and is free to all members this year. It’s a fun way to try different blocks and end up with enough to make a project!

Meeting starts at 7 pm; waiting room opens at 6:30 pm
Link to the webinar will be sent in an e-mail prior to this event.
$5 guest fee
Our November speaker is the phenomenal Lyric Kinard from North Carolina. Her lecture will focus on her work with quilted faces.
From her website LyricKinard.com:
“Lyric Montgomery Kinard is an award winning artist with a passion for sparking the creativity that she knows each of her students possesses. With playful support and gentle encouragement she will take you through your first steps on a new path, seeing the world through the eyes of an artist. As an artist, author, and educator she transforms cloth into art in her studio and timid spirits into confident creatives in the classroom.
Lyric was recognized for her talents as the 2011 International Association of Professional Quilters Teacher of the Year and is the author of the book Art + Quilt: Design Principles and Creativity Exercises. She has written extensively for Quilting Arts Magazine, appeared on “Quilting Arts TV”, and [on] “The Quilt Show.”
She will be teaching her two-day Quilted Faces workshop via Zoom on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 – 6 pm – 9 pm (Election Day – please plan accordingly) & Saturday, Nov. 7,, 2020 –10 am. Fee: Members $50. Read more about it, and how to sign up, as well as see an example of Lyric’s work on the Workshops page.
