Julia May, Ashe Library's Art Guru
During the month of October, the Library is featuring pieces from the “Small Quilt Challenge” in the upstairs display gallery. Please join us from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2013 for the official opening and enjoy the small quilts and refreshments.
"Small Quilt Challenge"
Each year members of the Guild are invited to participate in a “Challenge” project and each year the subject is different. This year the subject was “Things Found in the Attic”, a title chosen to coincide with the book written by Karen S. Musgrave. Musgrave was the Guild’s featured speaker in conjunction with this year’s Library and Arts Council’s “On the Same Page.” The number of participants varies from year to year but it is always fun to see individual interpretations of the chosen theme. Entries are displayed at the Guild’s Annual Quilt Fair.
The Ashe County Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild promotes the heritage of quilting, providing a source of information and inspiration to encourage excellence in quilting and the related arts. The Guild also donates quilts to A Safe Home for Everyone, Ashe County Senior Center, the Ashe County sheriff’s Department, The Heart Association, Victims of home fires, and Ashe Outreach “Backpack” Program.
The Quilt Guild meets on the 2nd Thursday each month at 1:30 p.m. at the Ashe Services for Aging Center off Ray Taylor Road in West Jefferson. Additional information is available by calling Irene at 336-982-3522.
