Quilt guild to meet Thursday via Zoom

The Hi Desert Quilt Guild will meet via Zoom Thursday, Aug. 6, at 6:30 p.m. Guest quilter Mel Beach will present a virtual “Dare to Dye” trunk show.

Beach is a quilter-teacher-lecturer based in San Jose who adds a modern, textured, and colorful twist to traditional quilting. She has competed in more than 90 quilting challenges at the local and international level.

“Her quilt designs draw upon her inquisitive nature of asking, ‘What If?’ and ‘Why Not?,’ working in a series, comedy improv studies along with her love of nature, photography, and sketching,” said a spokesperson.

Her award-winning quilts have been juried into national quilt shows and traveling exhibits and have appeared in books and magazines.

Anyone interested in joining the Zoom meeting should email hidesertquiltguild@gmail.com.
