Event Description:

The Coastal Arts Guild (CAG) welcomes Gloria Zirges to the guild’s luncheon on April 4th.  The first Thursday of each month, CAG holds a luncheon for members and guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts’ NewportVisualArtsCenter and invites those interested in the arts to attend.

“I’ve been sewing all my life. I was initially taught basic sewing by my mother and then started quilting in the 70’s, using quilt blocks and later enjoying creative pictorial quilt techniques,” Zirges noted.  As a member of the Oregon Coastal Quilting Guild, she continues to learn other quilting techniques from other members and workshop events, and has won several prizes for her work.

During her presentation at the luncheon, Zirges will display two quilts:  One titled “The Rooster” and the other called “Here Comes the Sun,” showing a variety of quilting techniques including watercolor quilting, which has small pieces of fabric of gradating colors to “create a wash.”  She will discuss other quilting techniques as well.

For additional information and an invitation to attend CAG’s luncheon, call CAG member Linda Anderson at 541-265-5228 or Terry Brady at 541-265-2621.
