Meeting this Thursday

Hope you can join us for our February meeting this Thursday.

Date:  Thursday, February 27
Time:  6:00 - 8:00 PM
Location:  Dowd YMCA - 7th Floor Conference Room

Program:  Ellen Lemaux - Applique IS for Modern Quilters
Don't forget to bring a few supplies so you can practice Ellen's applique technique:

- 5-6" light square of fabric
- applique needle
- thread
- scissors
- a few pins

February BOM:
During our snowy weather I made a block for the BOM drawing.  It was fun to use up some of my scraps.

My scrappy block

Don't forget that this month we have a book giveaway (The Modern Applique Workbook).  Each block you turn in for the BOM drawing also gets you a chance to win the book.

Inspired Mini Quilt Swap:
It is time for the wrap-up of the Inspired Mini Quilts Swap.  This month we will see the original inspirations and how everyone translated the inspirations into mini quilts.

Officer & Committee Nominations:
We will discuss the various officer and committee opportunities in our guild and take nominations.  It would be great if everyone could get involved and help carry our guild to the next level.  If you don't have a lot of time, think about splitting a position among several friends.  This helps lighten the load for everyone and can be a fun way to get involved with the guild.

Hope to see you soon,
Karen E.
