CAQ February 2014 Meeting – Marilyn Weaver’s Lecture

Amaryllis, vote, CAQ feb meeting 091The Central Arkansas Quilters February 2014 meeting was changed to the 20th, because of ice and snow. Marilyn Weaver from AQG and Gravel Ridge/Sherwood was the guest speaker. I love Marilyn Weaver!!! She is some neat lady! For years when I had a sewing problem or a quilting question, she was the go-to gal!! She is one of the most generous and helpful persons I have ever been around. We sewed on the weekends for a couple of years untilCAQ 1 our life got in  way of our sew time. She showed some of her gorgeous quilts and then demonstrated several things. One thing she showed was the measuring, and the cutting, and the squaring of quilts with big rulers and squares. She explained why and showed the right way to clean a sewing machine. I loved her explanation on how to use the basting spray and baste a quilt together. We did the program first so Marilyn could get home early,CAQ 2 then we had a lot of business to take care of. Oh, show and tell was great!  We always have lots at show and tell. Great meeting and a great time with Marilyn! Thanks again Marilyn!!!CAQ 3CAQ 4
