2014-2015 Guild Raffle Quilt
September 22nd evening Meeting:
Our first meeting of the year features a BIG Members' Show & Tell, Icebreaker, and much more.
Our September meeting is one we all eagerly anticipate. There will be our Grand Members' Show and Tell; remember to bring a project to share. And, at the meeting, you will hear more from each committee about their projects and see samples of some of the finished work. You will find things that are new to learn, as well as some interesting "new twists" to try on some old favorites.
Please let us know if you need anything, have suggestions, or ideas for making our guild a fun place to be.
We are going to be playing a get-to-know-you game at September's meeting. If you want to participate, please bring fifteen 5" charm squares. Be prepared to talk about some popular quilting patterns, techniques or related activity that you have never done but think that others have. You may leave with a stack of new charm squares.
It's that time - Fill out your membership form:click here to print and fill it out in advance to save time.
Special Event: Jackie Kudron Memorial Workshop
The guild will be holding a workshop on Saturday, November 15th through the generosity of late member Jackie Kudron. The workshop is entitled "Hue Can Do It" by Pat Delaney. In this workshop you will find that choosing a color scheme doesn't have to be a challenge. We'll experiment to discover the secrets to successful color choices and we'll also discuss the importance of value in making your quilts lively and interesting. This is a non-sewing class. We will play with fabric scraps, glue and templates to arrive at wonderful color combinations for your quilt blocks. Working with Joen Wolfrom's excellent color wheel, we will explore the many types of color plans and you will be inspired to be adventuresome and daring with color in your next quilt. So, raid your scrap bags and stash and come prepared to dream in color!
This is a 3 1/2 hour class with a morning or afternoon session. The cost of the workshop is $5.00. Pat recommends Joen Wolfrom's color tool, which you can pre-order with your registration. However, this tool is not necessary for the class. What is necessary is a lot of scraps (solids are preferred), a glue stick, scissors and a willingness to play with color.
Click here for the registration form to print and fill it out. It will be accepted at the September and October meetings. Space is limited to 50 members per session.
Guests are always welcome to attend our guild meetings. Guest fees are $5
for nights when we have a speaker, $3 to attend other meetings. See the Calendar for this year's programs.
Meeting Cancellation Policy:

Blog/Video of the Month
No Tear Paper Piecing... This video provides some food for thought - using freezer paper for paper piecing, yet sewing the block together in such a way that you don't need to tear the paper to get it off. Might be worth testing out to see how accurate you can be.
