ACQ Monthly Quilt Guild Meetings

Join us on the second Thursday of each month as we gather for inspiration, education and friendship. Meetings feature national and local speakers who inform and inspire us with a wide range of quilting topics. A highlight most months is Show & Tell when we share the quilts we've made.

See General Info below.

Upcoming Guild Meetings

    • April 16, 2020
    • 6:20 PM - 9:00 PM
    • First Plymouth Congregational Church, 3501 S. Colorado Blvd., Englewood, CO

    We are planning a virtual meeting through video chat. This will include Show & Tell and a presentation from Sherri. Very exciting! Details to come. 

    Improvise! Creating, Quilting and Living Courageously with Sherri Lynn Wood

    NOTE: We are meeting on the third Thursday in April, 2020.

    Improvisation is at the heart of living creatively. Music, dance, theater, drawing, cooking, conversation, play, child rearing, and even science benefit from the flexibility of mind that improvisational process engenders. Leave with mind tools, tips and a fresh perspective on how to apply improv skills learned in life to your patchwork – and vice versa!

    Doors open at 6:20 and the meeting begins at 6:50. 

    ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

    Modern quilters probably all know Sherri's name and her teaching methods and theory about improv quilts. She was the featured instructor at QuiltCon in 2019. Cindy, ACQ's VP Programs 2020, saw her tape The Quilt Show and learned of her healing social work practices—this makes her work and improv practices even more meaningful. Those who get into her 2-day workshop will be very lucky.
