September - “What I Have Learned: My journey from the first stitch to Tumbling Blocks and Card Tricks,” a lecture and trunk show, presented by Suzann Semonovick

Date: Monday, September 17, 2018

Place: Fellowship Hall, Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church, 105 Amsden Road, Ormond Beach

Time: 6:30 pm.

Suzann will talk to us about her quilting journey. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, so she will tell you that it is okay to point and laugh. The trunk show will walk you through her triumphs and set-backs. She hopes it will inspire you to never stop learning. Born and raised in New Jersey, Suzann Semonovick was a telephone repairman. She was the first woman to have that job and they didn’t have a different title back then. After 20 years she retired and moved to Florida with her husband. Suzann's neighbor invited to her to join a quilt class and she accepted. Suzann taught for many years for Flagler Adult Education. She began designing her own pat-terns in 1993 and started her own business, Gran-nie Suzannie. The rest, as they say, is history.

October - “Modern Quilting” a lecture and trunk show presented by Linda Hungerford.

Date: Monday, October 15, 2018.

Place: Fellowship Hall, Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church, 105 Amsden Road, Ormond Beach

Time: 6:30 pm.

In an 80-plus slide presentation, Linda will share the history of the modern quilting movement: its beginnings; how the movement evolved and continues to evolve; and the attributes and elements of a modern quilt. The presentation will conclude with a trunk show of her modern quilts.
Linda Hungerford has been a sewist since childhood, and a quilter since 1976. In 1998 she began domestic machine quilting, and in 2005 began teaching. Her first beginner classes were taught to make mission quilts at her church in Iowa, and ex-panded to churches throughout the Des Moines area. She taught that five-week series of lessons 34 times. As a result of those classes, she wrote First Time Quiltmaking (Landauer Publishing, 2006).
Since moving to The Villages in 2012, she has taught beginner quiltmaking, beyond-beginner technique classes such as foundation paper-piecing, English paper-piecing, a unique technique for binding, and domestic machine quilting. Since 2000, Linda has written quilting-related articles for numerous quilting magazines, and her quilt patterns have been published in magazines including Modern Patchwork. One of her quilts is included in the book Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century (2017, C&T Publishing).
Linda is the founder of the Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild that began in 2012 (CentralFloridaMQG.blogspot.com), and is currently the chapter’s program chair, and media coordinator.
