 Welcome to the Lakeview Quilters Guild Website

Lakeview Quilters Guild invites you to join us on the third Monday of every  month.  We are a Houston/Bay Area guild and we welcome quilters of all ages and experience levels.  Throughout the year, we host nationally-known speakers and offer a variety of programs, workshops, quilt-ins, retreats, and opportunities for community service.  We encourage you to join us in our love of quilts and quilt-making.

Happy Holidays

to Everyone!

COME TO THE HOLIDAY PARTY IN DECEMBER!

If you bought your ticket by December 1, you will get cool surprises...
otherwise, you still get dinner... plus the ton of fun we'll all have!
Check the newsletter for details about prizes, games, and more...
 

Want to Finish Some of Your UFOs?
Be inspired to finish your unfinished quilts!  The UFO Club starts in January.  Bring your Club Registration and Tracking Form and three fat quarters with you to the first meeting which will be at Gloria Dei at 6:30 pm.  Each month, finish one item on your list... or you will owe another 3 fat quarters.  Do this in the odd months (March, May, July, September, and November) and 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.
 
Spring Retreat is Just Around the Corner!!!
That's right... the guild's Spring Retreat opens on Wednesday, March 25 and closes on March 29.  Join in the fun and friendship and quilting down on Galveston Island.  Registration opens at the guild meeting on Monday, January 19 at 6:30 pm.  For more details and a registration form, click here.  We can't wait to see you there!

Congratulations to the New Board Members! 
Congratulations go to each of our incoming slate of Board members, and thanks go to each of our outgoing Board members.  Be sure and thank the outgoing ones... and offer to help the incoming ones.  Our guild is great because of the many volunteers who support it with time, money, and talent.  Hip, hip, hooray!
 

OUR RAFFLE QUILT IS GORGEOUS!

Our beautiful new raffle quilt, Whippoorwill Lane, has been unveiled and it is stunning!  You can purchase tickets for this quilt at our local guild meetings.  To see the photo of the quilt, click here.
 

Lottery Blocks  
We will not have a December lottery block selection; stay tuned for the January 2015 lottery block. 

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. 

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 cutting squares, piecing squares, 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.
 

Workshops
The January workshop we will host is with Erin Schlosser -- you can make a tote in her class, with a nifty self-portrait on it!  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.
