Genesee   Valley   Quilt   Club   (GVQC)   offers   quilters   a   place   to learn, grow, and serve through their love of quilting. Monthly meetings offer: Activities:    block    of    the    month,    fat    quarter    drawing, Comfort Quilt, opportunity to sign up for workshops. A large lending library.  Show and Tell Program,   usually   with   a   special   speaker   who   shares quilting    wisdom,    tips,    a    trunk    show,    and/or    quilting inspiration.  Sometimes after meeting mini-workshops. The     club,     located     in     Rochester,     NY,     meets     monthly September    through    June    and    draws    members    from    the Finger   Lakes   region   and   even   as   far   away   as   Buffalo,   NY.      The membership   represents   a   wide   range   of   quilting   skills   from beginner    to    advanced,    all    types    of    quilting    and    interests, including   traditional,   contemporary,   modern   and   art,   both hand    and    machine    quilting.        Because    of    the    diversity    of quilting   interests,   Show   and   Tell   and   the   parade   of   Comfort Quilts   (turned   in   for   donation)   are   always   a   delight   and   an inspiration.         Although   a   few   of   the   members   have   been   recognized   in   prestigious   juried   national   quilt shows, members enjoy learning and sharing their love of quilting together. GVQC   offers   an   opportunity   to   connect   with   member   quilters   through   an   active   (member   only)   Yahoo Group   and   to   keep   up   with   club   news   through   the   monthly   publication,   Patchword   newsletter.      GVQC has   a   long   tradition   of   serving   the   community,   including   making   and   donating   hundreds   of   quilts   a year through Love and Comfort Quilts  to area organizations to give to individuals and families in need. New   members   are   always   welcome.      If   you   are   not   sure   you   want   to   join,   come   for   a   visit.      We   would love to meet you.  More  about our meetings.

May Program Highlights Leni    Wiener,    a    former    professional    photographer,    gave    a delightful   and   informative   presentation   highlighting   her   own journey    using    photos    as    the    inspiration    in    designing    and creating   pictorial   pieces   of   art.      Her   lecture   and   display   of many   photos   and   pieces   of   her   work   visually   illustrated   her journey   as   an   artist   as   she   developed   her   own   “voice,”   her specific style of pictorial art. Leni’s   pictorial   art   pieces   are   often   made   for   specific   exhibits with   a   theme   or   topic   and   are   intentionally   designed   to   lead the   viewer   to   arrive   at   their   own   interpretation.      Her   work usually    includes    faces    and    and/or    hands,    uses    primarily purchased   printed   quilting   cottons,   is   detailed,   yet   relies   on the   value   and   texture   of   the   prints   to   convey   the   images   she makes.  It    was    interesting    to    learn about     her     process     from photo   to   fabric,   the   use   of complimentary      colors      to bring    focus    to    a    pictorial piece,      and      how      having some   of   the   image   off   the edge    of    the    piece    conveys motion to the image.
