Men quilters featured at Aug. 10 guild meeting in Mountain Home

Hill ’n’ Hollow Quilters Guild will present “Men Quilters’ Day,” a full day of information for quilters and crafters, on Friday, Aug. 10, in the Family Life Center, Redeemer Lutheran Church, 312 W. North St. in Mountain Home, Arkansas.

Jim Gatling of Morrilton, Arkansas, will be the featured speaker at the 9:30 a.m. guild meeting. His “Embellishment for Days” presentation will show embellished quilts of all sizes and kinds. He will explain how to locate just the right embellishment items and how to decoratively apply them to quilts.

Gatling, recently retired after 41 years in public and private education, was the only quilting teacher sanctioned by the Arkansas State Department of Education. He has taught more than 2,000 children art, needle arts and quilting. Quilts from his collection of 350 quilts and quilt tops are featured in his lectures and workshops. 

At 1:30 p.m., Brian Jordan of Martelli Notions will demonstrate the Martelli Work Station and its accessories. The work station’s height can be easily adjusted for standing or sitting to accommodate longer working periods with greater accuracy.  If at least 100 persons attend, the demo, a Work Station will be raffled to a lucky attendee to take home. Lots of other door prizes will be awarded and refreshments will be served.

Non-guild members are invited to attend this, free, full day of quilters’ information.  For more information contact  Carol Carol Lewis, 870-425-1105 or or visit
