What We Do…

Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild opened its doors to Central Florida almost 30 years ago. Since then, our members have produced countless numbers of quilts for personal use as well as for community service. Our annual programs include a mystery quilt, a challenge quilt and an original 12-month block of the month program which we make available to non-members as well. Additionally, the Guild hosts a bi-annual quilt show at the Central Florida Fair Grounds in Orlando, FL. We host an annual retreat and as well as bus trips to a quilt shows and other quilt-related activities. We bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers have included: Ricky Tims, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and Karol Kusmaul– just to name a few.

Next Meeting – March 2, 2015

Joan Shay, an award winning quilter originally from Cape Cod, MA who now lives in Summerfield, FL will talk to us about her applique technique, Appli-bond©, which will allow anyone to easily create realistic 3-D flowers, birds and fish. Appli-bond©  involves creating dimension without turning any edges by fusing two pieces of fabric together. Whether you are a beginning quilter or an expert in appliqué, her 3-D Appli-bond© technique will allow you to add exciting dimensional appliqué to your quilts. See her website at www.petalplay.com for videos and more information.

Note from the webmaster

Our website will be undergoing some changes over the next month or two.  I appreciate your patience as we go through these “growing pains.”  A couple of things that will be added:  a list of our local quilt shops, links to quilting-related web sites (especially those that offer free patterns!).  Do you have any ideas of things to add?  Please let me know – help make the site interesting, useful and informative.
