Many members of the guild are retired and don’t have trouble getting to the regular meetings during the day. But Tish Rudd, who will be leading the class, said that they had talked about branching out for people with day jobs for a few years.
Debbie Clark was one of the people who had asked for while about an evening group. Clark said that since she moved back home to Trigg County in 2000, she was always interested in the guild’s annual Ham Festival show. One year, she submitted a purse and a jacket to be judged in the show, but had not submitted any actual quilts. She said she looked forward to being in the group not only to improve her skills, but for the fellowship as well.
“When you share what you’ve been working on with others, it keeps you motivated,” Clark said.
Rudd said that the new group would be meeting the second Thursday of every month at the Cadiz Christian Church Fellowship Hall and would be open to anyone from beginners to the more seasoned quilters.
“Beginners don’t need to feel intimidated and I guarantee that the experienced quilters won’t be bored,” she said.
