Evelyn DePaolo is our Featured Quilter for 2024

Evelyn started quilting with Rose Shaw, a friend of 40 years, in the 1980s. She learned to hand-piece and hand-quilt with cutout cardboard templates. She still feels that hand quilting is her favorite. She enjoys quilting with her friends, the Bayshore Quilters.

Evelyn joined the Guild in 2005 and has been on several committees: Documentation, Community Quilters, Vendor. She has won several awards for her quilting: numerous blue ribbons, Golden Needle (best hand quilting) and Best in Show.

We all look forward to seeing her great display at the Quilts By The Sea Quilt Show on August 2-3, 2024.

Finishing School 

Finishing School is a great time to work on a project without being interrupted. You may bring your machine or hand work; we will have an iron there for you to use. You may come at any time and stay as long as you like. Bring a sack lunch or go out, whatever you would rather do. It is also a great way to get to know other Guild members and get help on a project that you need advice on. Fun time is had by all.  Meeting on February 22 from 10-4 at the Carriage House at the Lincoln County Historical Museum at 545 SW 9th St., Newport.
