About nine years ago, a call was put out to TVQG to anyone interested in working with Art Quilts and the formative meeting was held at the home of Heather Pregger. As of today, we are a gropup of eleven artists/quilters/journalers including: Heather, Pregger, Jay Dodds, Susan Garay, Kay Scheffer, Rhonda Weddle, Bethany Rowland-Reed, Beth Garber, Nancy Kinser Mecaskey, Wendy Hook, Dyanna Lawson, and Lynn Medlin. We meet once a month, either at members' homes, or at the meeting room at Cabbage Rose. We enjoy getting together to experiment on new (and old) techniques; from dyeing fabric, batiking, stamp making, etc., to sewing techniques and design possibilities. We like to keep ourselves energized by taking turns coming up with new challenges which might develop over several meetings.
