October 12 – REBECCA BRYAN – Modern Triangle Quilts
Rebecca Bryan is known for creating colorful and geometric quilts. As a fourth generation quilter, Rebecca grew up in a family of makers. Her mother taught her everything she knew about sewing and helped her make her first official quilt for her first apartment. Rebecca has been quilting passionately ever since. A quilt designer, blogger, and author, she currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband, four children, and one dog. Her lecture and trunk show will feature how you can use ideas from graphic design in your quilts. You’ll leave the trunk show with fresh ideas to apply to your own quilts! Be sure to check out her website and social media. She posts weekly tutorials on YouTube!

In the early 1980s, Shirley Brix and Becky Zook gathered 75 students and began holding classes at the Fielder Museum to encourage quilters to form a guild and talk about opening a quilt shop. In August of 1984, the first meeting of the Guild was held at the First Christian Church, forming the Quilters’ Guild of Arlington, with 35 charter members.
The guild was organized as a 501(c)3 charitable organization to:
- preserve and encourage the art of quilting,
- provide instruction for Guild members,
- educate the public,
- and to promote a gathering of people with this common interest.
