Programs

Most months, our guild has a class or event in the afternoon after the guild meetings.  The guild meets once a month on the second Saturday of the month at the PLPOA club house and the classes and events are also held in the club house.

Soon we will have listings for our 2020 calendar year.  Our calendar can change so be sure to check often to see if something has changed or a class has been added.

Classes are $10 for members per class and $20 for non-members per class.  You can sign up for a class at the meetings in the months leading up to the class or you can email Susan Clark  suzyoutside@gmail.com  and make arrangements to pay for the class.  Most events other than classes are free!

If you are unable to attend class for any reason, you may sell your spot to another member, however, if that’s not possible, you will forfeit your class fee.  We will not be issuing credits for classes that are missed.  Any class materials or website links given out during the class will be emailed to all paid participants even if you did not attend the class.

If you have ideas or suggestions for classes or activities for next year or questions about programs for this year, please contact Cathy Montowski cjmontowski@gmail.com or Cookie Bouslaugh cookiebouslaugh@gmail.com.  Supply lists will be posted below as they become available.

Keep scrolling down below the class list for more program related information!

Challenge Quilt Competition 2020

The challenge this year is to create a quilt or wall hanging using inspiration from a movie, book or song.  Here are the rules:

  • The quilt can be any size from small wall hanging to king size quilt.  It must be finished and bound with your best workmanship possible. Make sure all your loose threads are cut, guide marks are gone, and the pet hair brushed off to the best of your ability.
  • The title of the movie, book or song does not have to appear in the quilt but you will give that information when you turn in your quilt for judging.
  • Judging will be based on how well your quilt reflects your movie, book or song as well as your workmanship and creativity.
  • Quilts will be turned in at the beginning of May for judging at the May Guild meeting.
  • You do not have to be at the May 2019 meeting to participate in the challenge. Just make sure you have your entry turned in by the submission date.
