April 2017 Upcoming Programs

Stacey Day (Stacey in Stitches)

This month we are happy to have Stacey Day of ‘Stacey in Stitches’ as our presenter. Stacey is a local quilter and quilt designer who lives in Mission with her husband and two young children. She will do a trunk show for us as well as give us tips for getting free fabric from manufacturers. Stacey has been published in American Quilter magazine and has free quilt patterns on the Craftsy website. She will have copies of her patterns to sell, so come prepared. www.staceyinstitches.wordpress.com.

PhDs at Show and Tell
Remember that May is your last chance to show your PhD quilts.

June Social

For those who might have lost track, this is the Guild’s 30th anniversary – and we deserve a party! Expecting our usual warm summer evening, we’ll be serving chiffon and angel food cakes and fruit, with a side order of fun. There will be a signup list at the Programs table during the April and May meetings – if you wish to bring a cake, please let us know.
We have lots planned, not the least of which is awarding the prizes for the PhD quilts. Two hundred and eighty-six were registered, so you just know there will be lots of big prizes! For Show and Tell – in addition to the PhD quilts – bring your special quilts, first quilt, worst quilt, happiest quilt, best loved quilt, etc. We’ll also have a fun activity and lots of door prizes. And did I mention cake?
