September 2023 Meeting

Join us on 18 September 2023 at 6:30 pm. (See directions to venue below.)

Meeting Details:

  • Program Thread Painting with Kathy Wolfe. Ever wonder how far you can take free motion embroidery on a sewing machine? Please join us as Kathy Wolfe takes us on a trunk show journey in Thread Painting.

    Kathy Wolf has been a quilter since 1991 and is one of the Founding Mothers of the Sew Happy Carnation Quilt Guild of Alliance, Ohio and its very first president.  She has since served every office in the guild (except Treasurer) and is now serving as President (again).  She teaches her technique of Thread Painting to other guild groups and twice at the NEORQC yearly get-aways in February.

    Kathy has done all sorts of quilting styles and jumped on the band wagon of Thread Painting about 20 years ago.  She will walk you through her adventure of her thread painting techniques via quilt samples; the materials she likes to work with; and how she accomplishes her work.  Questions and answers are part of the trunk show. 

    Guests, as always, are welcome to our meetings.


  • Show & Tell — Bring your finished (or mostly so) projects to share with the guild. Guests are also welcome to bring in items to show.
  • Block of the Month — Bring your Block of the Month to share.
  • Newsletter — Our newsletter goes out to members one week before each meeting. If you have an item of interest for our members, please contact us for consideration. We do not accept classifieds ads.

2025 Quilt Show

“Theme TBA”

Our next quilt show will be held in July of 2025. We have a fantastic venue in the heart of Parma and our Quilt Show Committee is planning a wonderful show for you to see, or to participate in if you’re a member in good standing of Common Threads.

So — please mark your calendar and watch this website for further updates!

About Us…

Common Threads was started over 35 years ago by 15 founding members. We currently have over 40 members and are actively seeking new members to join us for fellowship, friendship, and to learn and hone quilting skills.

Our purpose is to “promote fellowship while increasing and encouraging the interest and knowledge of our members in all aspects of the art of quilting.” You’re encouraged to participate in our “Block of the Month” and the yearly “Guild Quilt Challenge” in a fun and engaging environment.

Highlights of membership include a Triennial Quilt Show, an opportunity to learn from seasoned guild members and speakers, and you’ve definitely found a place where you can feel free to ask questions, get answers, and improve your quilting skills.

As a Common Threads guild member, we Learn • we Teach • we Give Back.

Thanks for stopping by! We look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.
