2020 Programs

Check back for possible cancellation/rescheduling information

Greetings to you all,

Betsy Muir, President, and the Board of the Big Red Quilters Guild wanted to let you know that our April and May meetings and activities are cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.  This includes the Tiled Backgrounds workshop scheduled for Tuesday, April 28.  The Board will make a decision regarding future meetings in early May based on public health guidance.

  • If you’d like to look forward, we are hopeful that June 15 will bring us together for a meeting with speaker Denniele Bohannon (Where The Poppies Grow) presenting a program, “Forty Years in the Making.”
  • We will advise on spring program and workshop rescheduling at a later date.

The following programming is pending future direction from state agencies:  

June 15/16     Denniele Bohannon –  Lecture – “Forty Years in the Making”  & Workshop – “Celebrate”

July 20          Laureen Searing – “Joy of Sharing” lecture and trunk show

Aug 17-18      Nancy Roelfsmema – Lecture – “Why We Quilt” & Workshop – Paper Piecing Basics 9-3

Sept 21         Sew In 1-9 pm in Lodge

Sept 22-24     RETREAT

Oct 19-20      Coleen Merte – Lecture/Trunk Show &  Workshop: Pink Grapefruit (making curves quickly & easily without piecing)

Nov 16           Sew-In – Holiday Project “Make & Take” and Finger Food Buffet

Dec               No Meeting

Beechwood Church has the policy that if the West Ottawa Schools are closed all events at the church are cancelled.   If in doubt calling a board member is your best option.


We welcome your suggestions for future programs and teachers.
