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

May Meeting -- 5/17/18


Good evening ladies.  Our meeting is Thursday this week and should be a good one.  We will do all our regular stuff and learn more about appliqué as well. Betty B. has been terrific to step up to the plate to teach us needle turn appliqué.  I will bring a leaf sample to practice on. If those of you who have appliqué needles would bring some I will bring thread. Can't wait to see what new rounds are on our round robin quilts. (They will be featured in our August Quilt Show ). I will update everyone on our Veterans Quilt Project as well.

Please remember that we have muslin for backs and we also have batting. There' a story behind that batting. I'll tell you when I see you.

Really looking forward to seeing y'all.

Sharon
