It’s that time again! QUILT CAMP 2018~ Saturday April 21, 2018. Our annual event drew a broad number of projects taught by our very talented members.

The festivities started early on Saturday, April 21, 2018 with many helpers arriving at the hall before 8AM! Tables were organized and lots of chairs and cozy cushions were arranged around all the work areas. Our hospitality Ladies got our morning going with fresh coffee, tea and bagels! Yummy desserts and snacks appeared like magic! Thank you Ladies for all the goodies!

Hi Peg! How are the bagels!!??!!







Morning’s classes began at 9AM with The Smittens class taught by Michelina and the Petal Pouch taught by Lauren. Judy always draws a big crowd with her hand applique techniques class – the Orange Peel Block! Madeline stopped time with her Fabric Clock!

Too cute Vicki!!

Lots of new techniques to learn with Judy’s hand applique class!




What fun and creative projects Ladies!








After a quick lunch filled with lots of good snacks brought in by the members, it was back to work in the afternoon.

The afternoon’s 1PM classes were Lynne’s most favorite Mesh tote bags! These Ladies really got into their work and were crawling around on the floor, laying our their big beautiful projects!

FOUR $25.00 gift certificates from Pieceful Quilting.
A wonderful Quilt As You Go book was you go book donated by Joanns’ in Commack.
A beautiful Batik jelly roll and a Fat quarter bundle rounded off the stack of prizes.

All these wonderful raffle prizes were to be raffled off at the May 1st meeting so that everyone can attend the drawings.

We also had a Block Swap! Directions for a quick and easy block were given out at Quilt Camp with instructions to make a block and bring it back to the May 1, 2018 meeting. All blocks would be raffled off to the members who attended this year’s camp! Sashiko was the lucky winner of the blocks!

My most sincere thanks to everyone who came down early to help set up and those who stayed later to take down at the end of a long and fun-filled day. There is no way I could have done all of this without you Ladies. A very special thanks to George O. for helping set up the electric bars for all the table.

Thank you again for your continued support of our guild with all its workshops and events throughout the year!

I greatly appreciate all the projects, ideas and assistance that go into making Quilt Camp a fun day for our members!
