Lottery Blocks

The lottery block for April is the Shoofly block.

Lottery Blocks will catch up when meetings resume. 

 

You have time to make more March red, white and blue Cowboy Boot blocks. And the block for April is a pastel (or Spring-like colors) Shoofly Block. These offer a perfect break from the larger projects you're working on and/or as a way to take your mind off current events.

 

These blocks generate income for the guild when sold at our annual auction. Please be generous with your time.

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.  Visit the Auction/Lottery Blocks page for instructions.

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 Jane S.  Sign-ups are considered confirmed only after payment of fees.  Sign up early as slots often fill quickly.

Do you have an idea for a workshop or a speaker?  Email us your suggestions!! 

Community Service Quilts

If you are interested in making a community service quilt, 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.

Masks Requested

 

Tutorial available at clearlake.minutemanpress.com. Scroll down a little bit and you’ll find it.
Here is a little bit of info we received from UTMB Galveston - they specifically requested this style of mask.

“Are you able to sew covers to slip in surgical masks?

I work at UTMB Galveston. We are not able to wear masks yet because they say they will not have enough. We are all caring for patients completely unprotected and feel very vulnerable.

The ones that I am trying to get for all of our staff is from the YouTube tutorial where a surgical mask is slipped inside.

We have an all adult female staff with a little over 100 people in Mother/Baby. I also work with the NICU staff and they have mostly women with a few men. Our pediatric/PICU floor has one man and the rest female about 25 people. As well as our Labor and Delivery Unit all female about 100 people. My goal is to get a mask on every staff member in the Women's, Infants and Children at UTMB Galveston.

Please have them attach something that shows who made these, so that our staff members may thank them!”

When and where masks can be dropped off is at bottom of tutorial.
