June Meeting 6/16/2016

Hello my talented beauty's,

    I hope everyone is avoiding the rain & the heat by staying inside and  quilting, quilting, quilting!  We have our next meeting on Thursday, June 16, 2016 at 6:30 PM @ the Jones Creek library. I would like to thank Sandra Guilbeau, who shared an extremely informative presentation on "Threadology".  She prepared a Power Point presentation & handouts on the different types of threads that she shared with the guild.  The members learned so much from everything she shared with us and we are so grateful for it, Thank you Sandra!

I want to thank everyone who came to the "Bear Sew Day"!  It is always so much fun spending time together & being productive at the same time, love you ladies!  At the June meeting we are going to be working on Bears, Bears, Bears!  I will be bringing the bolt of fabric that Kathy donated for the Bears for you to use if needed.  Please bring whatever you individually need to work on the Bears tonight.  As we work on the Bears throughout the meeting, we be focusing on the upcoming quilt show for the library that will be held in August. Please let me know what you will be hanging at the Quilt Show, I want to start getting an  idea of what we will have this year. Remember, all entries must have a sleeve on the back, must be clean, free of any threads or hair of any kind.  If you have a quilt that you don't want to attach a sleeve to, you can pin a sleeve on the back as long as it hangs perfectly straight (Please speak with me about that if you have one that needs to be pinned).  The members want to hang the charity quilts again this year at the quilt show & we will also be adding to the storybook quilts this year as well. Thank you so much for all you wonderful ladies continue to do, give and contribute all year round!  I have said it before & I will say it again, you are all truly, Angels on earth! 

A reminder that we have a "Road Trip" scheduled for Saturday, June 18, 2016.  We will meet at 10:00 am at the Target parking lot on Millerville.  We will be going to Mia's Cafe Quilt Shop who is having a sale that day (Yay for us!), then we will be going to eat at Duke's restaurant.  Please let me know if you will be joining us.  Please bring your door prize donations & tabs to be turned in, as well as any completed UFOs & Show-n-tell to share! So come on, join me for another night of fun, creativity and fellowship!

Humbly yours,

Pam Tennyson?
