November meeting -- 11/15/18

Good morning ladies,

Merlene has graciously offered to do the program for our next meeting a week from today.  She will teach us how to press flowers in fabric to be used in quilts.  She has asked that we each bring a pressing mat and pressing sheet. She will provide the flowers and fabric we need.  She will also bring 3-4 irons and Mynan will bring another. It should be a great program.

We are going to discuss our Christmas party and get a report about our new officer nominations.

On a sad note, Birdie's husband Clyde has passed away after a long illness.  We will send a card from the guild. There will be a celebration of life next week. I will keep you posted.

Can't wait to see everyone,

September Meeting -- 9/20/18

Good Morning Ladies,

We have been invited to participate in a Quilt for Kids Sew day on Saturday 9/29 at St. Pauls Lutheran Church at the corner of Tara Blvd. and Old Hammond Hwy. from 9am to 3pm. Bring your sewing machine and notions or come to press. Kits, lunch and door prizes will be provided. Please RSVP to Gaye Smith. Its easy and a really fun day.

Tracy Gallagher's Class will be held 10/ 27 at the Jones Creek Library from 10am to 3 pm. This was the date that worked for the most people. Supply list and more information is coming. For those who are taking the class a second time you may want to talk with Tracy about what you want to do.  We will talk more about it at our next meeting.

Our next meeting is Thursday 9/20, a week from tomorrow. Don't forget to bring some quilting books that you no longer need/want. We will have a lottery and hopefully everyone will go home with a new book.  Also please bring a simple dessert ( cookies, candy, etc). You don't have to bring a lot because if everyone brings a few treats there will be entry for everyone.  Also bring a pen or pencil to write your name.

Looking forward to seeing everyone, Sharon
