The Gourd Artist Guild is a large group of Gourd
heads from all around the world, who chat together sharing ideas,
techniques, and friendship through John Stacey's Patch Pal e-mail
112 Gourd artists have come together to create the WORLD'S FIRST
GOURD PATCH QUILT. Each of the artists submitted their speciality
of artwork onto a flat 4"x4" gourd tile. Lynette Dawson
and daughter Margaret Schroeder are stitching it together. Framework
has been constructed and the project is well under way. The Quilt
will make its debut on April 3-4, 2004 at the Indiana Gourd Show.
It can also be seen in person at the Cherokee Gourd Artist Gathering
on May 21-23, 2004.
