There are lots of changes at Shepherd's Studio! We have almost completed our move to our new location. We are now located upstairs, in room S308 in the old education building at the church. It was hard to leave our beloved studio in the Hood House but it was time. We are going to have much more room to create in this new space. We are meeting occasionally on Wednesday nights for Arty Party and will officially start our group sessions in September. We believe the air conditioning problems have been resolved so now we can finish up our move. Keep checking to see what's on the calendar. We've got some fun things planned!

UPDATE: To comply with health and safety measures set forth by our church, the Stitches in Time Quilt Presentation will begin with the worship service at 11:00 a.m. and then will be open in the afternoon until 6:00 p.m. This will make it easier for people to come view the quilts and remain socially distanced.

Quilts tell a story…….
Some are family heirlooms.

Some catch our eye in a store display.

Some are a reminder of a special occasion such as a wedding or a birth. And others tell the story of a life well lived, pieced together to celebrate an anniversary.

Some are an account of athletic achievements, made of tee shirts or they are fashioned from well- worn dresses our mothers made for us.

Each quilt is unique and they are highly prized.

We’re looking forward to our upcoming quilt presentation. We want to celebrate our church’s reopening with a display of these timeless treasures. Do you have any quilts hidden away in a closet, cedar chest or covering a bed? We would love for you to share your quilts with us to display in our church’s sanctuary. More details will be coming soon. Feel free to contact Marianne Donohue 919 696-3971, Jerry Hester 919 810-8748 or Dora Cornwell 919 609-2275 for more information. We’re very excited to see what stories your quilts will tell!

The Grateful Threads met on the porch of Shepherd's Studio Tuesday night to work on our baby quilt project. It's all hand stitched. No sewing machines used. We completed all the hexagons and now it's time to sew them altogether to make the quilt. What a satisfying feeling to work on a project together and at the same time being safely distanced from each other. Where there's a will, there's a way. We love Shepherd's Studio!

What a lovely evening to paint outdoors. A few of us met last night to paint and enjoy some time together. It was fun chatting with the passersby and we actually got some painting done. We laughed and smiled and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I'm so thankful Forest Hills provides a place for Arty Party and our arts ministry. Before long, maybe we will meet inside. We are working to prepare the studio with a lot of sanitizing going on, clear acrylic barriers being put in place and a set up that will keep us socially distanced. We will be limited in number until this pandemic sees fit to leave us alone, but it will be so good to come home to Shepherd's Studio!

Here's a picture of some of the barriers in place. We will need more before we are ready to paint inside. But we are on our way. Who knew plexiglass was so hard to come by??? We will have to limit the number of artists painting inside. When will we ever see the end of this pandemic???

Our Barn Quilt Trail is installed! Look for the 14 quilt squares displayed all around our church campus. They are based on old quilt patterns depicting various Bible verses and stories. You will be able to find guides to the quilt trail on the bench beside the front door to the Gathering Place. After Monday, the guides will be located in a brochure holder by the first quilt, which is located in the front parking lot, at the crosswalk to Fred Olds School. We hope you enjoy the quilt squares as much as we enjoyed creating them!

We had lots of fun with the Grateful Threads tonight! Mary Anderson brought in her finished quilt. Isn’t it lovely? Marianne Kinman Donohue taught us a new quilt square called Flying Geese. If you are interested in learning to quilt, join us on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 until 8:00. It’s all the best of an old fashioned quilting bee with the hippest 21st century gals!

Young at Art Camp, 2019 is in the books! It was our 10th year. Our theme was "Gone Camping." We had so much fun creating all kinds of art. Our Bible stories were about the Israelites as they camped in the wilderness, the shepherds as they camped on the hillside outside of Bethlehem the night our Lord was born, and the disciples fishing. We even ate "manna bread." I wish I had pictures of the last day as we made s'mores by the campfire. Our campers were wonderful and our counselors were fantastic. Thank you Shannon Bellamy, Steve Whitt, Marianne Donohue, Angela Scranton, Larry Hester, Haley McDonald, Shelby McDonald, Alex Gentry, Winston Massey, Grace Smith, Kristi Flowers, Leah McDonald, Ashton Zuburg and Molly Zuburg for your expert help. It takes a village, especially when you are doing art

The Arty Party Group had a wonderful time over the weekend at the beach! We ate and painted, then painted and ate, then did it all over again and again! All that, mixed in with lots of laughs while being surrounded by beautiful scenery. What a fun weekend together!

The Grateful Threads of Shepherd’s Studio have been busy learning new quilt blocks and making a quilt for my sister in law who is recovering from a fall. So thankful for these friends who care enough about a stranger to give their time and talents.
Getting ready for tomorrow’s (June 8 )fabric collage workshop. If you are coming be sure to bring your sense of adventure! We are going to have so much fun!
