2022 Meetings, Programs and Fun Events:

July 18

Jenny Kae Parks, from Littleton, Colorado, a nationally-published designer, popular instructor and video host for Quiltmaker Magazine, Craft U and Fons and Porter will bring laughter and confidence to our guild as she presents a Zoom lecture, Color Courage for the Fabric-Phobic.

  • The meeting will be held at Tiara Yachts  (725 E 40th St, Holland, MI 49423)
  • Doors open to members at 6:30 pm for gathering time; program begins promptly at 7:00 pm.  
  • Parking is available in Tiara’s front/guest parking lot.  Because the spots are not marked, please be thoughtful when you park so that we can be efficient with the space we have. (When you’re parking, aim for that “just right” distance between cars…not too close and not too far, but “just right”.)
  • Overflow parking is available in the Tiara lot off of 40th Street.  There is a sidewalk from the parking lot around the building to the front, though we expect to have a very kind person at the back door to give back door access. Follow the path from the rear lot to the door on the east side of the building. Note:  Door will be open/attended from 6:30 to 7 and after the meeting for exit.  
  • Our speaker will be joining us via Zoom on the big screen in the meeting room.   We hope you will join us to take full advantage of the chance to participate in our business meeting, to share in Show ‘n Tell, to drop off your latest charity quilt project, but most importantly, to visit with fellow quilters and members of your Big Red Quilters’ Guild!
