The guild needs your donations of fabric! Please bring to the October meeting, a piece of fabric in ANY shade of purple, any size which is at least between a quarter yard/fat quarter to 1/2-yard. It can be any design, tone on tone, small print, or large print. We ask that it not be a plain solid or
have other colors not in the purple family (some blues leaning towards purple are
okay). Thank you in advance for your contributions!

October Program: Deb Strain

In October, we will be hosting Deb Strain, an artist and fabric designer from Ohio, who has designed over 100 fabric lines for Moda Fabrics since 1996. Are you looking for something sweet and gender neutral to make a baby quilt? You may like the darling forest animals in Ellie’s Woods by Deb Strain Moda. When you look at the raccoons, foxes, owls, toadstools, ferns, and woodgrain prints in this Deb Strain fabric collection, you can’t help but imagine that she was inspired by her twin grandchildren and the woods of her Ohio home. No matter what sort of novelty fabric you are searching for, we suggest that you peruse Deb Strain’s collections. She produces perfect designs for most every occasion! She will be bringing some of her products with her to sell and we will update you as to what payment methods she prefers. You can find Deb’s work on her website debstrain.com, the Moda Fabrics website (look under designers), her
Facebook page “Deb Strain Studio”, and her Instagram account #debstrain.

Rachel frequently uses hand dyed cottons, silks and non-wovens as well as Asian fabrics and kimono silks in her works. She uses sheers, couching and fabric paint to give a sense of depth and texture. Rachel will be lecturing at the December 4th guild meeting and teaching a workshop the next day, December 5th. Members will have a vote on which lecture and workshop combination will be presented from the following: Architecture Quilts, Couching, and Making it Pop.
