We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and tell bits of information about how they were made or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild meeting.
Our Show & Tell quilts are posted on Facebook. Type in your Facebook account Mountain Stars Quilters Guild and you'll see the latest Show & Tell.
If you are planning on bringing a quilt or quilts for “Show & Tell”, a sign up sheet will be provided in the Dining Room. Please give your name and the name of your quilt on the list. Then have your quilt photographed by Robyn Skinner and Marley Sharpe. That’s all there is to it. During the actual Show & Tell time you can enjoy seeing everyone’s quilt and hear their story and not be interrupted with photo taking. Your quilt will be posted on Facebook.
