The winner of our beautiful raffle quilt, Whippoorwill Lane, will be selected at our May guild meeting.  It's not too late for you to purchase the winning ticket!  To see the photo of the quilt, click here

Our June guild meeting will be held at the Johnson Space Center's Gilruth Center in the Alamo Room.  Access to this facility (unless you are a badged person who can enter from JSC's interior roads) is off of Space Center Boulevard, near its intersection with NASA Parkway. 

The May 18 guild meeting is our community service night.  It starts at 5:30 pm and ends at 9:00 pm - and yummy Subway sandwiches, chips, soft drinks and water will be provided.  Check the newsletter for details on what to bring with you.  Our community service quilts are given to men, women, and children who have unique challenges in their lives.  Help build a sense of community in our world by helping make these quilts.   

And start bringing items for the August auction; Janet Gouveia will accept them at the May, June, and July meetings; don't bring books until the August meeting, though.

It’s not too early to be thinking about the fall retreat at Round Top!  Retreat starts Thursday, September 10, at 2:00 PM and ends Sunday, September 14, at noon.  The total cost of the retreat is $220 which includes 3 nights and 5 meals.  Registration will start at the April guild meeting. A deposit of $50 will reserve a place for you. The balance can be paid during the next four months.  We will have registration forms at the sign-up table.  Looking forward to another wonderful retreat with all of you!  If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact either Tonda Helm or Diane Grafton.

Lottery Blocks  
The May/June lottery block is a Patriotic Star block.  These beautiful blocks are a wonderful celebration of red, white, and blue fabrics.  Because May is our Community Service night, these blocks will be collected in June - with the winner to be selected in June also.  For this month's block directions, click here.   
How does the lottery block system work?  Make two blocks.  One is for the lottery; the other is used in the guild's annual auction.  For each two blocks you make, you get  one chance to win all the blocks in the lottery set.  The more you make, the greater your chance to win - and the guild's share of block-sets bring in auction income that helps pay for our programs. 
Are you ready to learn precision piecing from a master piecer?  This 3-day workshop in June will give you all the tips and techniques that a fabulous piecer needs - for only $100.  Jan Krentz is  a superb teacher with patience, experience, and a ton of knowledge.  Check the calendar for details.  Click here for the supply list for the class.  Do not get the supply list from Jan's website; the guild will be providing many of the supplies, so our list is shorter!  NOTE:  The workshops are full but there is a waiting list.  Contact Nancy Ferverda for more information.
Oh my goodness - we have SO many people signed up to complete UFOs this year -- and we've seen an amazing array of UFOs that have finally come out of the closet and gotten finished.  It's not too late to join the UFO Club.  Talk to Lecia Majewski about how to join. The Club meets at Gloria Dei at 6:30 pm.  By March, May, July, September, and November, finish one item on your list... or you will owe another 3 fat quarters.  In November, everyone who has finished all five of their original projects will get to split all of the fat quarters that have been turned in.  Be sure and bring your finished projects for show-and-tell!  Click here to see and print out the Registration form.

Workshops can give you new techniques, new knowledge, and new inspiration - you may be surprised at what YOU can do!  Check out all of our upcoming workshops by looking at the guild calendar.  Workshop sign-ups are taken at the Workshop table at guild meetings, or contact Bobbie A.  Sign-ups are considered confirmed only after payment of fees.  Sign up early as slots often fill quickly.
