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

July Meeting -- 7/19/18


Good afternoon ladies,

I am looking forward to our meeting Thursday night.  We will have a social and review plans for the quilt show.   I will be bringing drinks. If you guys bring something to share we can all snack to our hearts content.  I'm thinking cookies, dips, brownies or anything you like.  We will also be playing two fat quarter games. Please bring one fat quarter that is red, white and blue themed. Red or white or blue or any combination would be perfect. The other fat quarter is anything you chose.

I am collecting our quilts for the show. I will be glad to come to you to pick them up or you can bring them to the meeting. I'm available for pick up Wednesday morning, Thursday most of the day and all day Friday after 10:30. We need quilts for the show. If you have any Christmas quilts please put those aside to bring as well. 

Once again, I know we will have an excellent show.  You guys make it possible.

Call me for pickup or bring the quilts Thursday night. Call me as well if you have any questions.

Thanks, Sharon

June Meeting -- 6/21/2018


Good afternoon ladies,

Our next meeting is this Thursday night. We have a fun meeting planned. In addition to all of our regular stuff we will be seeing our Round Robin Challenge Quilts in their final stages and we are having a guest speaker. Tracy Gallagher, an amazing fiber artist, will do a trunk show of her art quilts, collages and other works.  I can't wait to see her work. We are also going to talk about our next meeting where we will be getting ready for our quilt show. We will bring blank forms for you to turn in with your quilts.

Also attached are the minutes from our May meeting. Please review them. 

Really looking forward to seeing all of you and your quilts as well as seeing the trunk show.

Sharon
