Quilts Made New” Special Quilt Display
sponsored by Pam Clarke, Teacher, Quilter and Collector!
(Louisville - Lincoln)
Pam has been collecting vintage quit tops since she
started quilting in1970. She just loves the older
fabrics and loves finishing quilt tops whether by
hand or machine. In her collection she has tried to
keep the quilting in the traditional style of that
era. She uses her quilting talents and makes no
changes or re- sets the top unless it is in really
poor condition. Pam says, “I feel that every quilt
deserves to be finished, and it is my goal to
complete all the ones I’ve collected.”

Creative Crones and Chicks Art Challenge
Each month Fabric-Chicks Creative Oasis hosts a meeting with a group of women who love to challenge each other to think outside of the box and explore their creativity. Each month every member puts a word into the box - whatever word is chosen - each member goes home and creates a small project, inspired by the word that was chosen. The challenges are to create something about the size of a fat quarter (18" X 22"ish). Every month we demonstrate or explain the techniques we each used.
"We try new things…it's not about doing it right, it’s about exploring and finding new and different techniques!"
One member said, "The challenge is to do something new and different and stretching into new possibilities of quilting and art."
This group is open to all that would like to join. It meets the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30pm at Fabric-Chicks in Minden, NV
Fabrics Unlimited in Tahoe also has a very similar group…they were our inspiration!!!
Current members include Crones Judi Corrado, Lisa Du Coing, Becky Cozzi, Joan Costa, Norma Coffey, Beth Watts, Jodi Shumate and Gracie Watts the Chick.
