There for a while I thought we had turned the corner and were finally going to get some nice warm weather……but I guess not.
We have lots of information to share with you at our May meeting which will be on Tuesday, May 28. Social Time begins at 5:30pm
Please bring your checkbooks and lots of cash…..why you ask??
October Retreat Sign-up begins – Space is limited to 27 participants. A $25 non-refundable deposit will hold your spot. Cost will remain the same as last year. $135 for 3 nights. Dates of the Retreat are: October 11-14 – Columbus Day weekend.
July Class (Saturday, July 20th 9am-4pm)) Sign-up Begins – Space is limited to 22 participants. Stephanie Soebbing will be teaching “Going North” a quilt out of her new book. The class is 6 hours with a break for lunch. Cost is $45 plus $5 for lunch. If we do not fill the class we will open it to non-members for a cost of $55 plus $5 for lunch. A materials list will be provided at sign up.
Stash Sale – Donna Lee will be bringing stash from two quilters to sell. Sale price will be $1 per piece. Many pieces are 2-3 yards. 100% of the proceeds will go to the guild.
Round Robin – bring the top pass along to the next participant in your group. If you are unable to attend, please make arrangements to get it to the next person in line. I’m getting excited to see what everyone has done!
Block Lotto – remember your completed blocks.
HeartBeat Quilts – If you took a top to piece, we asked that you return it at our May meeting. If you were unable to attend the April Design Night, we still have tops to piece.
Program for May will be stations with different type of handwork: Wool Applique, Hand Embroidery, Sashiko and Quilt Labels. I find that having some handwork to do enables me to spend time with my significant other, while being creative. Makes us both happy!
