Jean Impey - July Meeting

Our Speaker for the month of July is our own Jean Impey.

Here is what she has to say about her creative journey.

Art has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I remember always being intrigued and absorbed with making things. My mother encouraged my exploration of all things creative and my life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.

My essence is defined by boundless style, unbridled passion, and inexhaustible energy. I thrive on the thrill of discovery, the beauty in observation, and the perspectives of others. Every moment is an opportunity for me to engage with the world through artistic expression.

In my realm, there’s no notion of “doing it wrong”; creativity knows no boundaries. I resonate with Albert Einstein’s wisdom: “The easiest way to be creative is to try something different, even if doubt lingers.”

I eagerly anticipate the chance to share my unique narrative, creative endeavors, and unwavering passion with you.

Come join us for dinner at 4:30 with Jean Impey at California Pizza Kitchen, 25513 Marguerite Parkway, Mission Viejo. Please text your RSVP to Donna Wester at 949 584-3210 by July 9th.



"  Let Freedom Ring!  Happy 4th of July! "  

This  is my favorite holiday of the year.  There are no gifts to buy, dinner is super easy to make, and there is  a spectacular show in the sky which is free!  And that means I have more time to quilt ! 

 So now I am busy creating my  "No Rules Challenge " and I  cannot wait to see all of the fabulous creations  which will be presented at the August Meeting. Best part of this challenge is that it doesn’t have to be totally finished to be in the Reveal!  Now that’s my kind of Challenge! If you need more information please contact Elaine Pappas-Puckett

It is not too soon to begin thinking about the next year for BCQG.   Please consider volunteering to serve on the Board, or on a Standing Committee.  The success of BCQG depends on the generosity of its membership to volunteer their time and talents!  It has truly been a rewarding and fun experience for me! 

The June meeting with Jack Edson was fascinating, and the workshop was inspiring! 

The July meeting is going to be Fabulous!  Jean Impey is an amazing artist and quilter who lectures and teaches all over the USA.  I was so excited when she said  "Yes.  I am in town, and  would love to speak for my favorite guild!"  Don’t miss this meeting because her lectures and workshops are filled with so many creative ideas and learning opportunities ! 

Happy 4th of July and Happy Quilting !
