This week the group will meet at Webster Elementary School, 634 S. Tenth St., at the back entrance.

Quilting group plans meeting

Quilters on the Rock will meet on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., at Christ United Methodist Church, 112 Hall St., in Watertown. The door will be open at 5:30 p.m. for those wishing to come early.

The group will host Chris Kirsch, who is a nationally known local quilt artist who has been a quilting instructor for many years at Madison College and Waukesha County Technical College. Kirsch began sewing garments as a child and didn't discover the joy of quilting until well into adulthood. When she explained this to a group of garment sewers once, they commented to one another, "she's gone to the dark side." This made her laugh and later became an inspiration for one of her newest lectures.

The lecture she is giving is called "Gone to the Dark Side" and it's meant to entertain. She will share pictures and stories about her past exploits in garment sewing and show quilts that relate to them. Her lecture and quilt display is free for guild members and $5 for guests.

Anyone interested in quilting is welcome to attend. There is always a show and tell of completed quilt items made by members. For more information or questions, call Jacquie at 920-261-2777.
