Hello everyone, we are back from a short Newsletter break!
We’ve had a specific request for some single bed and large lap quilts for Turning Point and Lookout. The measurements should be: Twin min = 54” x72” (max 60”x80”) and Lap = 42”x54” Those sizes are also welcome elsewhere, so make as many as you like!
When you show your community quilt at the meeting, you can win a prize!
- one entry for cutting out the fabric for the kit
- one entry for completing the top
- one entry for quilting and finishing it.
That’s up to 3 entries for a quilt. Some of you are finding it a lot of work to fill out all the entry forms, but you can’t win if you don’t do it! Also please add a label to your community quilt! We usually have labels at the meeting along with a needle and thread for you to sew the label on during the meeting.
The Community Quilts Bee will be taking place on FEBRUARY 22, 23, 24, 2018. Basic hours are 9:30 to 4:00 Mark the date on your calendar now as there are only 2 meeting (Nov & Jan) till then. We have access to the church, we have tables, we have a stash of fabric, we have batting…. ALL WE NEED IS YOU and your machine! Please think about joining us for a day and making something wonderful!
Giving feels good!
Also if you can help with transporting the fabric and equipment to and from the locker please let us know as soon as possible. We will plan to have the order forms for “La Galleria” sandwiches for Fri/Sat.
Last 2 last items!
IF YOU NEED BATTING, please give us at least 2 weeks notice before the meeting, it’s a big roll located at the Locker and we have to plan ahead!
KITS, please consider taking one and please return any that you aren’t going to finish (no questions asked)
Thanks again everyone, I’m constantly amazed and proud of our guild’s generosity, so if no one has said it lately, YOU’RE AWESOME!
