Title: Celebration of Color and Design

Website: ​ https://sheilacollins.us

Description:

I like to think of my art as a celebration of color and design. My artwork came to be by combining my backgrounds in fashion design and graphic design with my love of sewing, and the results are bright, cheerful, and fun  This lecture describes how I’ve been moving forward with my creative journey from juried art festivals to quilt challenges and commissioned pieces. In my pursuit of trying new things I share techniques I’ve learned while exploring “what if.” For your viewing pleasure I have over 20 pieces of art to share with you. It’s filled with stories, tips, and oodles of inspiration.

Holiday Party

Location: San Mateo Garden Center

Activities: 

*Catered Lunch

*Homemade Ornament Swap

*Best Holiday Sweater, Shoes & Head Attire

(Raffle Baskets

**Singer 1953-54 Featherweight Raffle

Description:

 

There will be a *catered box lunch, beverages and a sweet treat. 

 

We’ll have a fun and creative quilt activity that everyone will enjoy.

 

This year, as a gift exchange, we’ve decided to hold a *homemade ornament swap. Participation is not mandatory. If you would like to get in on the fun please bring a homemade ornament as your entry into the exchange. Everyone who brings an ornament will be part of the exchange. 

 

There will also be a contest for *best holiday outfit, best holiday sweater, best holiday shoes and best holiday head attire. So, dig through your holiday fare and wrap yourself in your most festive threads!

 

Along with all this frivolity, we will have oodles of lovely *raffle baskets to bid upon.

 

AND… the pièce de résistance is we have a beautiful, pristine *Singer featherweight that will be raffled off at the end of the party. The owner/donor of this lovely machine will be revealed at the day of the drawing. She is eager to share the wonderful history of the featherweight to the lucky recipient. 

 

If you would like to take a chance to win the **Featherweight, the tickets are $10 each. Please send your check, payable to Peninsula Quilters, and mail it to P.O. Box 2423, Redwood City, CA 94064. Checks must be received by December 6, 2021. As my adorable Italian sewing machine repairman would probably say, this is a bella macchina 🤌🏼 don’t miss-a you chance-a to win-a! And it’s a great way to support our wonderful guild. 

 

So, be sure to mark your calendars for December 15th and get started now on making your homemade ornament for the exchange. You will not want to miss this party!!

 

Any questions, please feel free to contact me, Nancy Krosse: nrkrosse@me.com or call/text  650-281-8174.

We have all purchased those wonderful pre-cut packs of fabrics; 10" squares,
5" squares, and 2 1/2" strip sets. These packets provide a variety of
fabrics without having to purchase multiple yardage.  Colleen Granger will
show you how you can make several of her designs using these packets.  She
will also show you different settings that are sure to get your creative
juices flowing as well as how to make her "drunkin border."  \
