Meeting Minutes
July 19, 2021

via ZOOM

The meeting was called to order by President Marianne Greenley at 6:30pm.

Joyce Greenfield reviewed Zoom procedures and suggested restarting the app if you have problems.

Featured Speaker:    Sue Hauser introduced Trudy Cleveland who presented a Power Point on photographing your quilts.  Trudy is both a photographer and a quilter.  

Trudy grew up in southern California; her father was a photographer, so this was part of her upbringing.  After 35 years as a dental hygienist, she began photography classes with the idea of documenting the quilts she produced with her longarm business.  

An important aspect of photographing your quilts is the light source.   It should be at a 90-degree angle to your quilt.  Use daylight bulbs, do not use your camera flash.  Stands made for photography and video are less expensive than ones made for quilts.  Trudy recommends using “portrait” mode on your phones.  Shoot your labels also.  Set your phone camera to show a grid to help line up edges of your quilt.  Trudy showed a moving video of quilts of valor photographed in black and white.

Trudy will conduct two workshops beginning next weekend.   To attend, contact Sue Hauser or register on-line.

History Mystery

Part 3- Exhibit

As submitted by Jean.

In 2010 our guild presented an exhibit at Valley Art Association, Forest Grove, entitled Winter Wonderland.  Several members participated including: Clara Mashek, AnnMarie Cowley, Stephanie Sluyter, Bella DeVir, Betty Sheperd, Shawn Priggle and me. We were the featured artists for a month. 

 HART Theatre asked us to help with their production of the play Quilters. We provided a display of quilts for the lobby during the show’s run. Our members made the required seventeen 18 x 18 blocks to use by the actors onstage shown as each character spoke. In addition, we created one large finale quilt, which we raffled off as a guild fundraiser at the end of the play’s run. Special thanks to Cathy Smith and Shawn Priggle for help with choosing fabrics, and to Shawn for Quilting and binding.

Next, we created a joint exhibit with Washington County Museum, Connections: Quilting 1930s and Today, comparing the two eras through quilting. The museum acquired an exhibit of Dorothea Lange’s 1930s photos and asked us to help them create a complimentary exhibit to accompany the photos. We received a grant from Hillsboro Arts and Culture Council to implement this, our first large grant.

 Members loaned items, both new and old, to pair with items from the museum’s collection. There was a special section devoted to the Featherweight and its introduction at the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair.

After much hard work on the part of our members, the exhibit was very well received and held over an additional month. In conjunction with the exhibit, we sponsored a quilt lecture, held a quilt turning, provided weekly quilting demos, and hosted a documentation day by the Oregon Quilt Project. We continue to provide education activities for the museum’s Family Day program on request.

2010 and 2011 Presented a quilt showcase and provided education projects at Hillsboro Saturday Market and at Showtime for Shute

2011 Provided quilting demos at the Washington County Fair

We provided quilts, signage, and demos for an exhibit at Beaverton Historical Society’s new museum. We were able to reuse some of the signage from our previous exhibit, along with loaning several items from our guild members.

(Text sent from Jean)

The Early Years

Our first public event was helping Cornell Estates with their quilt show in 2007. Steve Rice, Roni Andrews, Julie Mason, and Paula DiNovo assisted, along with help from other guild members. Proceeds were donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. Charity continued meeting to make quilts, and our membership increased to 60 by the end of the year. 

We continued to work on our 501 (c)) (3) application, and finally submitted it on April 2, 2008. See the signing here. We received our approval April 18, 2008. On April 26, we had our quilt show.

 In 2008, the show was turned over to our guild completely, with Cornell Estates providing advertising and the venue. Julie Mason donated a quilt for our raffle, shown here, that she designed on EQ. The next photos are from the 2008 show.

In March 2009, we participated in the rainy Hillsboro St Pats Day Parade to promote our guild.

As we grew, we began looking for a larger location. One of our members, Margret Boris, offered her church, so we began meeting in September at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church. Tell story of Sandi Carner and the mini raffle bowl.

In April 2009, Education Chair Marcia Gilliland presented a program and slide show on the history of quilting that she researched and wrote. This program has been given many times to various church and civic groups, as well as used as a teaching tool for Vernonia High students. Marcia and her committee developed a multi-week unit on quilting for the Vernonia students as part of a Folk Studies program. Which was repeated for several years.
