50/50 tickets are now available for sale at the beginning of the meeting and at break times only. This week Gail won $32.75.
Last meeting we received a large bag of donated fabrics. It has now been sorted and Jean will announce the plans for this at a later date.
We need to reset our meeting room after the meeting. Tables must be put away and chairs stacked against the walls. Thanks to all for the help in getting this done so quickly.
Jean announced a Sewing Room Challenge. Take a picture of your sewing room before and after tidying up your creative messes. Post on FB on our guild page in an album that has been created. Info on how to do this will be posted on the FB page.
Laura announced that Katie Pederson’s workshop on Feb 11, 2017 is $85.00. We will be doing the Double Trouble block and payment will now be accepted: cash or cheque. Payment must be given to Laura to hold your spot. We do have the possibility of a second workshop on Friday day if there is enough interest.
October meeting will be a trunk show by Kathleen Riggins of KathleenQuilts.com.
November meeting will be a demo and pop-up shop by Lois Kelly of Batik Baskets.
There will be a sew-in booked for October … date to be announced as soon as the room is booked.
Cynthia Frenette will also be doing an Improv Curve workshop in November – $35.00 and date to be announced as soon as the room is booked.
Laura is also trying to get a workshop booked with Paul Krampitz from VMQG this coming spring.
At this point in the meeting, Tracey and Marilyn took over for our 6th anniversary party.
We were provided with one mini clip and if we said … quilt, needle, thread, six, hexi, or sew … and we were caught, we would loose our clip. It made for some very interesting conversation and clips being tossed back and forth throughout the evening.
A short ice-breaker gave us the opportunity to talk one-on-one with another guild member that we didn’t already know.
Two show-and-tells happened. One with hexi projects (some that were pretty close to being called antiques!) and our regular show-and-tell. Always amazing work done by our very talented group!
There were amazing snacks provided and wonderful door prizes. It was a great 6th anniversary party!
