10:00 A.M., January 28, 2023
Hope Church, Manchester, Maine
Brooke Biette of Dust and Waves Textiles

The January Members’ Meeting will be held at Hope Church, 728 Western Avenue, Manchester, Maine, beginning at 10 a.m. with the business meeting, show and tell, and lunch, followed by the speaker, Brooke Biette of Dust and Waves Textiles.

Brooke is a Maine native who moved west, landing in Arizona for a few years, and is now back in Maine. She has 30 years of quilting experience and 5 years of self-taught ice and snow dyeing of fabric. Brooke will talk a bit about her dyeing process, how and why she got started, how she mixes dyed fabrics with contemporary and vintage fabrics in her projects, where her project inspiration comes from, and more. She has a few quilts that she will bring and a bunch of fabric examples.

You can check out her website at www.dustandwaves.com.

We will also be voting on the budgets for PTQG and for Maine Quilts at this meeting—you can find those documents on pages 11-15 of December issue of Patchwork Press.

Please note that there will not be a snow date for this meeting. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for good weather and hope.

Special Events at the January Members’ Meeting 

Have you ever made a Red, White, and Blue quilt? Do you have a special shirt with Stars and Stripes that you wear for the Fourth of July? How about a headband with sparklers? I bet you have something patriotic. Bring or wear it to the January 2023 Members’ Meeting. If Maine Quilts 2023 Special Exhibit can be Christmas in July, our January Members’ Meeting can feature Summertime in January!

Let’s beat the cold!
