Welcome to the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters blog. The photo here is the past president Kay Fiaro holding up the quilt that the guild surprised here with. Blocks was made by members, & Ruthe Rasmussen pieced it all together, then Deb Hardman quilted it on her Longarm machine.
The ALCQ meets every 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month, at both 1030 a.m. & 7 p.m., at the Emanuel Lutheran Church on the corner of 15th & Cordova in Anchorage. If there happens to be a 5th Thursday in the month, we usually have a work bee that gets together to work on comfort quilts. We usually make about 200 comfort quilts each year to give away to needful people in our community.
We have a show each September, & we invite the community to come in free. We also sponsor famous quilters to come up & teach workshops, usually at least twice each year. They usually include a lecture which is free to the public.
On this blog I hope to keep up to date notices of the goings on in the guild, & links to member web pages.
Thanks, your 2008-09 webmaster, Debra Jo Hardman

Thanks for keeping the web site current. It makes me homesick. I'm in Port Orchard, WA and havn't been able to get to a guild meeting here yet because of the weather and they meet only once a month in the evenig and I'm too chicken to go out at night. My sewing machine is up but I don't have anything organized to work on yet. Maggie
