January Meeting

Our meeting is Thursday, January 18th at Woodside Quilting

Let's get our plan ready for 2018! Should we get a steering committee together and/or just come with ideas and create a calendar? Anyone want to present a skill or lead a discussion? Please volunteer! Maybe you have other questions you'd like to bring up.

I would like to discuss if we need the blog site any longer. And if so, who would like to take over doing the posts? Most people watch for the announcements, discussions and events on Facebook. My feeling is using one place for everything would be cleaner and easier. But mine is only one opinion!  That being said, I would like someone else to take a turn with the blog if they feel it is necessary! 

The meeting starts at 6:45 but feel free to come early and shop! Woodside Quilting has generously provided our meeting space and shopping is one way to thank them.

Remember your modern show and tells!

Happy New Year everybody,
Marny

November Meeting

Our last meeting for 2017 will be Thursday, November 16th at 6:45. It will be our annual Holiday Handcrafted gift exchange and Potluck. The description for the gift exchange is pretty open ended...any holiday and at least partially handcrafted (by somebody) and not expensive. Get creative!

It is also an evening to bring food/drink to share. Once you are ready to commit to something, mention it in our Facebook group comments so that we don't have too many duplicates. Or just bring what makes you happy!

This is always a fun evening, so come to socialize and exchange gifts. We really hope you attend even if you do not wish to participate in the gift exchange!!!

Feel free to come early and shop! Woodside Quilting has generously provided our meeting space and shopping is one way to thank them.

Modern show and tells and forming a 2018 steering committee are on the agenda as well!!

Hope everyone can make it!!

October Meeting

Our meeting is Thursday, October 19th at Woodside Quilting

Most of you probably saw Erin's idea for a program posted on our Facebook site.

I have an idea for a meeting program. I always think it's a shame that we don't take time to learn from each other's results at the quilt show. So my suggestion is that we bring our show quilts in with the comment card and go over the judges comments so we can see what was considered to be good or needing work and improve our own skills. This may also encourage those who have never entered a show not to be afraid to enter next year. Even if you don't quilt for shows you might learn something to improve your skills.

Please bring anything you entered in the quilt show. We would all love to see and learn!!

The actual meeting starts promptly at 6:45. You are welcome to arrive earlier, shop and socialize!
