Front Range Contemporary Quilters (FRCQ)

Some of you have heard of the large group of fiber artists known as FRCQ, who meet in Westminster on the 3rd Monday evening of each month.  They have great speakers, show and tell, fiber art news and lots of members to talk to about their art.  More info on their website
  • 3rd Monday of each month      January - November    7 PM - 9 PM
  • Westminster City Park,  Recreation Center,  10455 Sheridan Blvd., Westminster, Colorado
  • Membership dues are $30 a year

Well...on July 16th, they are having their annual Desserts and Demos meeting which is FREE to guests.!  It's a good time to check out the group and learn something.    Here are some of the demos:
  • Margaret Abramshe-PhotoTransfer using images with a vintage feel or ephemera
  • Nancy Smith-Zentangles-a drawing technique that can be used for stitching technique.
  • Jane King-Painted and stamped fabric dryer sheets
  • Donna Mae-Inset circles plus other shapes
  • Moira Mallison-Tyvek-what to do with it!
  • Lea McComas-Blending threads to make realistic faces
Desserts and Demos start at 7 pm with socializing at 6:30 pm.  Also, FRCQ will host the 3rd annual SHOW & SELL at the same meeting in July.  This is an opportunity for any FRCQ member to sell handcrafted items, promote classes and workshops, or share information related to fiber art.  Starts at 4:30, finishes at 6 pm
