NEXT MEETING – October 28, 2014
Peg Bingham will present her “First Quilts to Last Trunk Show”. She shows her earliest and most recent work to illustrates why she quilts and how she evolved into a quilt designer and teacher.
Peg’s love of quilting together with her love of all things Celtic has resulted in publication of her own pattern line of pieced Celtic Knot designs, called Peg’s Patches. These designs are unique and like nothing else available, featuring simple construction with stunning results. Along with the line of pieced Celtic Knots, Peg writes other fun patterns including several Attic Windows designs. Peg loves to update, modernize, and put a contemporary spin on traditional blocks and patterns. Peg has been machine quilting since 1976. She has been teaching quilting and designing patterns based on pieced Celtic knots since 1996. Her Celtic designs are fabulous and beloved by quiltmakers all over the world! In August, 2010 she completed her M. A. in Clothing, Textiles, and Interiors at the University of Akron with her thesis entitled Professional Machine Quilting and its Impact on the Contemporary Quilt Movement. Peg is the director of The Quilt Camps at Cedar Lakes featuring two annual quilting events at the lovely and pastoral Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley, West Virginia. These events provide opportunities for education, growth, relaxation, and camaraderie for quiltmakers from all over the country. You can get more information about Peg’s quilting work and The Quilt Camps at Cedar Lakes at www.pegspatches.com.
