April 2017

Fifteen members and guests attended the April TAGY meeting.  Prior to the meeting several members hung this year's art quilt challenge called "A Place in Someone's Heart", which is about child abuse and neglect.  It  takes "a  place  in someone's  heart" to  report  abuse  and neglect  of  a  child, volunteer  for  at-risk kids, become  a foster  parent, establish a guardianship of a child or adopt a  child. These are the people that can change a child's  life forever.  This exhibit will hang in the lobby of the Cody Courthouse Annex throughout the month of April.  In May this exhibit will move to the Powell Branch Library, and in June it will be at the Sheridan Library.

Show and Tell is always a fun part of the program for this talented group of women.  Below are examples of some of the unique things the TAGY members are working on this Spring.

Pam and Ginger constructed some boxes and baskets for the Easter season.  They are shown in the photo on the left, along with the small beaded kaleidoscope by Linda M.

Ginger also took advantage of the latest snow to do some snow-dying (blue/yellow) and ice-dying (pinks) of fabric.  And she made a "Lifesavers" quilt, shown below.

Lorna completed two 12" x 12" architecture quilts for the TAGY first-quarter learning experience. And Carolyn brought her interpretation of a women juggling her many responsibilities.

Jan H recently discovered that her grandmother was a quilter, and brought an antique quilt top that she made, probably in the 1940s-1950s era.

In addition to these wonderful projects, Lili gave a program on Scrap Booking and brought many examples of Journals and Scrapbooks she has made, as well as materials so we could play around with the various techniques.
