    This is why I join guilds - today's speaker Zena Thorpe

    Today's speaker at Mid Valley Quilt Guild in Salem OR was Zena Thorpe. Her web site - http://zenasquilts.com/pictures_of_quilts

    Seeing those beautiful quilts in person, up close, was worth the entire year's dues. One of the quilts won Best of Show at Houston. All were amazing.

    Tomorrow night I go to another guild's meeting and learn about local barn quilts. Such fun!

    As I recall it was the middle picture on the left. The quilt is modeled after a ceiling in one of the Queen's buildings in Windsor Park. Here's another picture of that quilt, although it doesn't really do the quilt justice.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I am going to a quilt guild today. For the first time in years I have no obligations to keep me from joining. Hope they have programs as good as this one.

    Have fun at your guild. I now belong to 3 - one very small, one medium, and one very large. The speaker yesterday was at the very large guild - over 300 members, a morning and an evening meeting, over 150 people at the morning meeting yesterday. You can get lost in the crowd, but it's a crowd of quilters, so that isn't so bad. The very small guild seldom has a speaker, and never a nationally known one, but we all know one another and can spend time looking at each show-and-tell quilt, asking questions, etc. Every guild has its own unique personality and reasons for joining.

    You are very lucky. Those quilts are awesome. No wonder she won a prize with them. I keep thinking I will join a guild, but it seems like I'm always busy on the day they meet. Maybe this winter will be quiet and I will be able to go.
