Informal Workshops

Informal workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesday from September through April and on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from May through August.  They are usually held in Room G in the Venice Community Center.  We meet from 9 to 2.  Participate in guild projects or bring your own work.

At the October 11th workshop, our Boutique projects will be wine bags and tea bag caddies.  In case you missed them, patterns from earlier workshops are also available.

2017 Earlier Summer Informal Workshop Boutique projects:

July 12: More place mats.  There will also be bib materials available if you want to do a little project.

July 26:  Scrap or thread catcher project available

August 9: "Feelies" or "Fidget blankets"  Bring fleece fabric if you have extra, we will be making them at 24 inches square but they can be pieced.  Also bring trims, ribbons and such to put into the edges or on the mat itself.  What is a Fidget blanket?  Click here to find out more.

August 23:  Heating Pillows - make some for the boutique and one for yourself.

If you have any ideas for items to make and sell in the 2018 Quilt Show Boutique, contact Pinky Stewart or Kathy Casey.

We ARE making a difference:

"Dear Venice Are Quilters Guild,

I was recently admitted to Sarasota Memorial Hospital for surgery, a mastectomy due to breast cancer. When discharged, I received some lovely gifts. Included were some things made by your group. Thank you very much for the lovely tissue holder and the padded seat belt cover. They are both so lovely. I appreciate the thoughtful gift. It is touching to think about your group working hard to reach out to me during this time as I battle breast cancer. May God bless you for your thoughtfulness and kindness. I appreciate what you’ve done and what you are doing for others.

Press on in your service to others, using the gifts and talents you have to bless others."

 Come to mingle and have fun!
