August 17, 2017 : Member Meeting

Thursday, August 17
LLCGS August Member Meeting and Program  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
First Lutheran Church, 1551 S 70th, Lincoln, NE
Our Monthly Business Meeting will begin at 7 P.M. and is followed by a presentation on Quilting.
 
Lois Cole will share her personal reasons for creating quilts as well as discussing why specific themes and materials are selected when planning a quilt. She will display some of her favorite creations as well. Quilts may be considered "Folk Art" or appreciated as functional comfort (actually used) but they also record history along with their other purposes. 
 
Phyllis Ericson will complete the program by providing information and guidelines on the preservation of quilts. It's important to understand what we can do to preserve these treasures for our descendants.
 
Hope to see everyone there!
