JULY

Our speaker for this month is Jane Sassaman

 

Bring those Auction items to our July meeting.

It’s early… but it’s coming! Yes, the guild auction is a mere 2 months away… it’s not too soon to start planning what you will donate to the auction. We will happily take finished quilts, quilt tops, blocks, fabric, scraps, batting, notions of all types, patterns, kits, UFOs, and any other quilt-related items you have been hiding away. So think about this:

  • Start your spring cleaning – set aside fabrics and books you won’t ever use!

  • Remove guilt over not finishing things – donate your UFOs and kits you haven’t started!

  • Make room for more stash – put those old rulers and patterns into a bag for the auction!

  • Share the joy – sort your fabrics and donate the ones you won’t ever use!

  • Surprise everyone – make a set of brand new set of blocks or a quilt top for the auction!

Help make this auction the best one ever!

We will also take quilt related books and magazines, but we request that you bring them in August.

 

Lottery Blocks 

The September 2017 lottery block is the Shooting Star block.
Click here for this month's instructions.

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 and turn in on the due date, 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.
 

If you did not turn in your blocks on the due date, you can still contribute to the guild by making blocks for the auction.  Click here to see the blocks for this year's auction.

Workshops
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 our 2nd VP Marsha F.  Sign-ups are considered confirmed only after payment of fees.  Sign up early as slots often fill quickly.
 

Community Service Quilts
If you are interested in making a community service quilt, click here to check out our Community Service page.  Scroll down for a list of suggested sizes of quilts.  A multitude of kits are available at each guild meeting for piecing, quilting, and/or binding.  You don't have to do everything -- every little bit helps in the making of these heartfelt gifts to people in our community who are dealing with unique challenges.
