MCQ Spring Quilt Camp - 2020

April 16-19, 2020 (Thursday to Sunday)

   

Join other fun-loving quilters for YOU-time at this Quilt Camp held at YMCA Camp Reed north of Deer Park. No cooking, no responsibilities except to YOU. Sew on your own projects in the spacious and well-lit work area with an incredible view of Fan Lake. Join in on fun exchanges and games if you'd like, or not! Lodging is in shared rooms in the lower level of the main building, or stay in one of the many rustic cabins nearby. (Cabins do not have their own bathroom but there is a shared bathroom facility within walking distance.)

MCQ Spring Quilt Camp is April 16-19, 2020 (Thursday to Sunday). $50 deposit (check, cash, or credit card) holds your spot and is refundable until 3/13/20. Final payment is due 4/1/20 and no refunds given after that. Total cost of Camp depends on number of Campers, and ranges from $150-$175. Fee includes 3 nights lodging and 6 meals. Credit card payment accepted for deposit (pay under tab SHOP / CLASSES) or send check. More information and signup form available by email: send to Terrie at "moosequilts @ hot mail.com" 

Pictures above are of the lodge, a couple of the many cabins, and me! Below is a photo from inside the "workroom" in the lodge where all the fun happens, plus a look at the bunk beds in one of the rooms in the lower part of the lodge, and some of the fabrics and things I brought last time. Everyone gets a complete bunk - top and bottom. We need a place for our stuff!!




Artists' Studio Tour of Sandpoint - 2020

August 14-15-16 and 21-22-23, 2020

2019 Tour is already over, but plan for a fun couple weekends with friends next year! Yes, I will be part of this wonderful tour again. Mark your calendar for next year's Tour: August 14-15-16 and 21-22-23 and 10-4 each day. My classroom area will again be transformed into a gallery of fabric art, a mini quilt show if you will.  Enjoy the beautiful drive on your way here and plan a day out with friends. Pay studio prices for beautiful art!



What is the Tour? 

The Artists' Studio Tour is a self-guided tour in and around the Sandpoint, Idaho area where local artists invite the public into their personal studios. Brochures and maps are distributed around Sandpoint and local communities, and the most recent brochure can be viewed online at Art Tour Drive.

POAC Activities 2019 

I am honored to be chosen as the Artist of the Year by our local arts organization, the Pend Oreille Arts Council (POAC). The brochures and posters from this year's ArtWalk featured one of my quilts!


As Artist of the Year, I will be having a solo show in December and January. See below for details, and for the opening reception. Exciting!

PLATEAU? NO!

Ongoing now and until November 27, "Plateau? No!" is on display at the Columbia Bank Plaza at 231 North Third Street, Suite 101. This is downtown Sandpoint, in the old bank building north of the old Merwin's. (Sounds like I'm giving you directions from 100 years ago..... sorry if you are new the area, go by the address.) I have three pieces on display here and am one of 5 artists selected to participate. You will be intrigued by the three pieces of each artist, showing an example of their early works, something newer, and one piece that is current. Mine are from around 1991, 2005, and 2019 - so you can see a big change and growth as an artist. Check it out weekdays when the businesses are open!

THE FABRIC OF OUR LIVES

Ongoing now until January 31, 2020, The Fabric of our Lives is a contemporary fiber art show at the Power House at the south end of town. I have five items on display here, along with the art of other local artists.

INSPIRATION IDAHO


An upcoming show with its opening reception on December 6 at the Columbia Bank Plaza, continuing through January 31, 2020. This will be my solo gallery show which is one of the many benefits of being the Artist of the Year with POAC. I will feature pieces from my "Shadows" series, and snippet wreath and tree designs. Mark your calendar and celebrate with me at the opening reception!!

ArtWalk


ArtWalk will resume again next year in July and August. This huge annual event is coordinated by POAC with displays throughout Sandpoint and in many businesses.

ArtsGrowLearning Exhibit

This museum-quality traveling exhibit has taken a tour in our area, continues traveling to venues around the state of Idaho. If you happen to see it, check out the examples and text from students I worked with from Valley View Elementary in Bonners Ferry, entitled Fabric, Fact & Fiction. So far, the display has been to Bonners Ferry, Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene, and Boise - at the Capital!! 

As described by the Idaho Commission on the Arts, "...This presentation highlights the depth and relevance of arts learning for students and teachers, and celebrates the creative energy and expertise of Idaho's artists.       Professionally presented visual artworks, interpretive text, photographs and video vividly tell the story of ArtsPowered Schools residencies during the 2016-2017 school year."
