Members whose last names begin with the letters D, E, and F are asked to bring in a snack for our refreshment table. Cut-up fruit, nuts, cheese, chips and dip, as well as baked goodies are always welcome.
Our next Table Raffle will be our Big Baskets in December but don’t miss the Comfort Quilt Summer Project Raffle in October and the Member Boutique in November.
We’ll be holding a food drive later in the year, so stay tuned.
Meanwhile, over the next few months, drop off your reusable grocery bags, whether extra ready-mades you’ve accumulated or homemade ( be sure they’re sturdy, some pattern ideas here) at the hospitality table because the food pantries are in need of bags due to upcoming plastic bag prohibitions,
OCTOBER 16 – We still have openings for the Wen Redmond workshop which is now open to non-guild members. If you are interested please contact me by Oct. 7th since Wen would need that Monday to print your images. There is a supply fee of $25.00 to be paid directly to Wen at the workshop.
NOVEMBER 20 – Sign up for Charlie Hietala’s workshop on Thread Painting. We will be working on fabric Charlie hand dyes. The thread painting can be done on a featherweight machine or a machine that can drop feed dogs. Charlie will be vending the cover plate for featherweights along with some of her fabrics the night of the lecture.
JANUARY 25 – This Saturday workshop on curved piecing for modern quilts will be run by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill who is our December speaker. Check out her website:https://www.wholecirclestudio.com.
I will be taking sign ups for all Workshops. The member fee is $50.00 (non-member $70.00). Please bring a check or cash to pay for any workshops at the meeting and stop by the program table with any questions you might have.
