We look forward to seeing you on Saturday for the highly anticipated program originally planned for September 2020.  We’re so happy Travis recovered and is ready to present:

Quilts Made by Men - The Men Who Quilt:  A Presentation by Travis Seward.

In 1992 The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum held its first show featuring quilts made by men.  Novel at the time because quilting had been considered women's work, and few men were known to quilt.  Since 1992, more men have emerged and are participating in the art and craft of quilting.  Travis will highlight the work-quilts made by men and discuss the community of male quilters today.

A Few Reminders and Bits of Information:

.  Sub-committee chair & help:

Looking for a volunteer to be the chair of a classified ads subcommittee to help establish policy for the Bylaws (what/whom to allow, fees, etc.). These classified ads would be shared on the blog or even Facebook listing items for sale or quilting services, for instance. The Board has some ideas and would like a member to assist in this endeavor.  Contact Brooke if interested. 


.  Show & Share/Quilt Quark Gallery: 

Send your photos of completed quilts to to be shown at the next meeting and featured in Quilt Quark.  Try to crop and make lighting adjustments before sending but if you cannot, don’t worry – we’ll do it!
