KMQG Happenings and Upcoming Color Theory Lecture

We've had an amazing response to our first quilt show. It was such an inspiring evening and day, and if you weren't able to make it down to Striped Light, we are happy to announce that the show goes on! Our quilts will remain on display through the Open Streets celebration in North Knoxville this weekend. You can visit Striped Light Saturday, May 14, 12-5 and Sunday, May 15, 12-6. Please come down and support our beautiful show. We're also going to make this a yearly event!

At our May 21 meeting, Ashley Pace will also be joining us from the University of Tennessee with a lecture on Color Theory. We have invited guests from the quilt show to attend this meeting and join in on the fun. We'll also collect payments ($75) for our July Workshop with Shannon Brinkley. All payments for this workshop are due at the May meeting (paypal to also accepted). We will vote on our favorite mini quilt from the TN mini quilt swap, and the winner will receive a gift card! Remember that the minis made for this swap need to shipped before the end of May, so show them off and then mail them out.   

During our meeting on June 18, Merikay Waldvogel will lecture on 200 years of Tennessee Quilts. You can find more about her here. Her lecture will be $6 per member and $10 for non-members, so bring your friends! The weekend of our June meeting coincides with the Smoky Mountain Quilters Quilt Show at the Expo Center.

And finally, July 16 will be our workshop, Scrappy Skyline with Shannon Brinkley. There are still spots available to all interested parties (click here to reserve your spot). The Knoxville Skyline pattern, available here for $8, must be purchased before the workshop.

We're excited about all of these amazing learning experiences coming down the line and hope you will take advantage of these great opportunities!
