Welcome to North Idaho Quilters!
September 23rd GENERAL MEETING
her lecture Jean will share her work and discuss her tools and techniques for
producing such beautiful designs.
The following day, Tuesday, September 24th, she will present a workshop teaching different methods of painting and designing your own fabric. We'll be dyeing with paints; stamping - including making your own; using unusual materials to make striking fabric designs; Shibouri techniques; learning to mix colors using the three primaries; marbling on fabric; making your own printing plates; simple batik; and probably a couple more depending on time. Students will make samples of each technique to take home and refer to when making their own projects. The cost of the workshop is $45 for members, $55 for non-members, and some art supplies are included.

We invite you to come to join us. You’ll find us warm, welcoming and brimming with enthusiasm for our latest quilting projects. Our programs provide new learning opportunities and we share the joy of one another’s quilting accomplishments during our Show and Tell time. Our General Meetings are the fourth Monday of odd numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, and November) and are held at the Calum Shrine Club Event Center located at 1250 W. Lancaster Rd, Hayden, ID. Several times a year we host a nationally, regionally, or locally known speaker at our general meeting and often the speaker will present a workshop for guild members to participate in the following day. Guests are always welcome to join us at any meeting. A $10 non-member fee is assessed when a guest speaker is presenting to help defray costs.
We also have Activity Days where you can bring a project to stitch on (by hand or machine). These days are usually the second Saturday of even numbered months and are held at the American Legion Post 143 at 1138 E Poleline Ave., Post Falls, ID. We have an active Community Service group which meets on the second Tuesday of every month at Bear Paw Quilting, 600 W Kathleen Ave, #10, Coeur d'Alene, ID. There is no Community Service Meeting in July or December. Sometimes the meeting dates change, so check our calendar for current dates and time. The Guild hosts a Quilt Show for our community in June of odd numbered years. In order to encourage our youth and help them learn quilting skills, North Idaho Quilters offers a Kids Quilt Camp each summer.
The Guild is comprised of quilters from various communities located in Northern Idaho, Eastern Washington and Western Montana and has almost 200 members.
