‘Quilts – Tree of Life’ program at Sew-ciety

The Central Iowa Quilt Sew-ciety will meet Tuesday for its regular monthly meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church.

The group is excited to have Valorie Bonk, AQS certified quilt appraiser, as the guest speaker. Bonk will present a trunk show with old and new quilts relating to trees and how they have changed over time. She will be sharing where the tree designs came from, when the earliest pieced tree quilts were found, who designed them and why they are important. Bonk will present how “Family Trees” can be shared in a quilt.

Central Iowa Quilt Sew-ciety meets at 5:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at Trinity Lutheran Church located at 1011 S. Third Ave., Marshalltown. The guild is for anyone with an interest in quilt making from beginners to professionals. Informational programs are held at each meeting with extras such as sew-ins, retreats, mystery quilts, president’s challenges, shop hops and workshops. The group hosts small groups such as paper piecing, appliqué and machine quilting.

The public is invited to attend this program.
