August update and September plans!

Guild friends - just a few notes from our August meeting and a reminder for our next meeting ...

Coats and Clark did our July program. They wanted us to know about an exhibit they are sponsoring. Wild Fabrications features 38 art quilts created by textile artists from around the world. These stunningly vivid and masterfully crafted quilts feature nature themes, portraying animals both realistically and imaginatively in a riot of vibrant colors, patterns and textures. The intricate detail and dimensionality of these stitched works will delight, inspire, and fascinate children and adults alike. The exhibit is at the York County Culture and Heritage Museum from October 11, 2016 until February 26, 2017.

We will be electing new officers at our October meeting. We need to elect and president and vice-president (or two co-presidents), Treasurer, Program Planning Committee, and Swaps Committee. If you are interested in serving in any of these roles, please contact the guild via our gmail -cltmqg@gmail.com

We have a library and it's full of great quilting books! But, we have more than we need. We'll have a sale in October and pass on some of our library books for $1. If you have books in your own collection that you'd either like to sell or donate to the guild to sell or add to the library, bring them to the October meeting.

Our program for August was a Webinar from the Modern Quilt Guild entitled Definition: Modern Quilts with Mary Fons. It was very interesting and informative. If you'd like to view it, you can do so at this link. 

Our upcoming September meeting - A Sew In!

For our September meeting, we will have a sew in to make more placemats for Friendship Trays. Bring any orphan blocks that you have and we will turn them into placemats. Feel free to bring your sewing machine, if it's portable, other fabric for making placemats, batting, thread, scissors, and whatever tools you have to share. 

We'll have extension cords and power strips, ironing boards and irons.

It will be a fun evening that you won't want to miss!
