Quilting and Fiber Arts Club invites new members

The group will host two open houses in October
by: Lisa K. Anderson The Quilting and Fiber Arts Club is hosting two October open houses at Sandy Historical Society Museum. Group members enjoy a variety of the arts, including quilting, crocheting, knitting, embroidering and braiding rugs.

Friendship and an opportunity to learn have kept Teri LaVoy an active member of the Quilting and Fiber Arts Club since the group began in 2007.

The club is hosting two upcoming open houses for potential members: 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, and 9 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, on the second floor of the Sandy Historical Society Museum, 39345 Pioneer Blvd. Those planning to attend after a day of work, or past 4 p.m., should ring the doorbell.

The Quilting and Fiber Arts Club is an organization that benefits the Sandy Historical Society Museum by providing volunteers to organize the annual quilt show, activities to benefit the museum and community, and a place for quilt and fiber artists to hone their skills.

At a recent club meeting, 10 women shared stories and refreshments while quilting, crocheting, knitting and embroidering. Sometimes, they even mend clothing.

Potential members are invited to attend twice at no charge to see if they'd like to join the group. Membership for the year is $50.

The club meets the second and fourth Thursdays of the month with three sessions each event: 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1-5 p.m. and 5-9 p.m.

Participants are free to work on their own fiber arts projects and bring their own sewing machines, supplies and equipment.

Extension cords and power strips are available, along with two tables with cuttings mats and two ironing boards with irons.
