September Meeting

Hey Everyone!

We had a great August meeting. Many thanks to Gail Toliver for our wonderful mini workshop on paper piecing. You can find Gail's tips and more here.

We are looking for someone to teach a 10 minute tip on a favorite sewing tool for our September meeting. Remember, there is a $10 gift card to Barnes and Nobel with your name on it if you teach a mini workshop. Please email me if you are interested!

Our September Meeting is Thursday, September 29 at 6:00. Mark your calendars!  We meet at Morrison Regional Library near SouthPark Mall.

If you are participating in the scrap bag swap, please bring your completed item for your partner to the meeting. We will have our swap gift exchange then. It would be REALLY helpful if you would create a mosaic in our Flickr Group for your partner so they will have an idea of what you like.

For a tutorial on how to create a flickr mosaic click here.

If you haven't turned in your Habitat Challenge Blocks yet, please do so at our September meeting. Remember, they need to be 12.5" x 12.5" and can be any combination of squares and rectangles with one additional solid.
Please add pictures of your blocks to our Flickr Group.

We also need a volunteer to piece together the blocks into a quilt top. This will be our guild's first charity quilt and first project. I hope you will help us make this happen. Please consider helping with this important step in the process.

Finally, we are participating in the Robert Kaufman Solids Charm Pack Challenge.
Our guild has decided:

  • You can make anything you would like
  • You can add up to two additional solids
  • No prints
  • Challenge items due at the Dec. 1 meeting
If you would like to participate, there are still a few charm packs available and you can pick one up at the September meeting. 

Looking forward to seeing you in September!
