Patoka Valley Quilters Guild Exhibit

Jasper Community Arts, with support from Bargain Barn is pleased to announce the popular summer exhibit of work by the Patoka Valley Quilters Guild. Many exquisite quilts and pieces of fiber art will be on display at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center beginning July 1st through August 20th, 2021. The work represents a wide variety of techniques from traditional pieces and appliquéd quilts, machine or hand stitched, to some cutting-edge art and decorative pieces.

Each meeting features a program on a quilting topic, which gives members the opportunity to learn new skills or brush up on traditional techniques. The Guild hosts quilting retreats and monthly sewing days. 

Community Service is an important commitment of the guild. Members annually host programs at the Dubois County Museum for Heritage Days for area fourth graders to learn about quilting and to design a quilt block. Members provide Komforts for Kids for distribution to youngsters in distress, totes and quilts for Crisis Connection, and quilts for area nursing homes. 

Annual dues are $15.00. Prospective members may attend two meetings before joining and are always welcome to be a guest at the monthly meeting. Anyone wishing to join may contact Ann Jorden at (812) 631-3919. 

The galleries at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center, located at 100 3rd Avenue, Suite A, Jasper, IN 47546, are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Sunday from noon to 3:00 pm. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free. Donations appreciated.
