All membership applications and dues WERE due by the October meeting. The November meeting is your last chance to renew your membership for the 2017-2018 year. If you have not renewed your membership, the Membership Application located in the membership heading on this site.  Print it out, fill it out and bring it and your dues with you to the meeting.   If for some reason you cannot attend this month’s meeting, please mail your application and membership fee to the Membership Committee’s Sue B.

We have a guest speaker, Erin Underwood at that meeting who will be talking about her quilt journey.

We still have a few openings for the class but they need to bring their check to the November meeting for $60 (supply costs are additional). It’s first come first serve. I have attached the supply lists for the square, or round tuffet.

May Monthly Meeting – Pincushion Swap, Show and Tell and Beautiful Blocks!

The May meeting was a lot of fun – our pincushion swaps were unveiled and members proudly showed off their newest quilts creations (some of which were started at Quilt Camp!)  The pincushions were creative and efforts were made to make sure they matched the personality of the person who received the pincushions.

The guild presented Pat Aitken with a gorgeous collection of blocks, which celebrated her love of birds and all things nautical.  Pat is moving east, but not leaving the Guild completely.  How could anyone leave such a group of wonderful ladies!  Wait for the grand reveal when the quilt is put together!

Quilt Camp

Quilt Camp was held on April 29, and a wonderful time was had by all!  The classes were fun, and everyone wanted to win the great door prizes!  Thank you to Kathy Kelner and Barbara Oestel for putting it together, the teachers who were so generous with their time, and a big thank you to George Oestel for setting up!  We are looking forward to next year.
