Calling all KHQS members who love wool applique. We hope you will join us for the 2022 Applique Retreat to be held March 11-13, 2022 at Blue Licks State Resort Park, 10299 Maysville Rd., Carlisle, KY. 40311. This class is open to all KHQS members who love wool appliqué or would like to learn a new technique.


Vicki McCarty of Calico Patch Designs will lead our class teaching her techniques for wool applique. Our project will be one of Vicki’s own wool designs, Gingerbread House block 1. While we will be focusing on block 1, there are 3 additional designs available to complete a 52” square wall hanging.

We are extending registration until March 1, 2022. If you would like to register after that date please contact Jessie McClurg. 


Meet the Maker

Welcome to the newest feature of the KHQS newsletterwebsite, and social media pages. The past 18 months have left many of us feeling isolated and out of touch with others. This feature is designed to entertain, engage, and help us reconnect to one another. If you would like to be featured in the Meet the Maker segment, contact Teri Smith at
Karen Riggins is a charter member of KHQS and has served in nearly every leadership role at some point over the years. She credits the organization in large part for her growth as a textile artist. “I have learned from so many great teachers, and through KHQS I have made lifelong friendships with some absolutely wonderful people.

KHQS Events and Covid 
The KHQS Board recognizes that our members are eager to meet again in person for retreats and seminars. We also know that many of our members have medical vulnerabilities or at-risk family members that make them wary of participating in events that may increase their risk of getting sick.
