Saturday Workshop 3/23

Hey all,

Saturday is workshop day, so bring a project to work on and come on down to the RAC for a sit and sew.  I am not sure whether Mary Anne will be bringing the wedding ring quilt or not, so bring a project.  If you have your Ultimate guild challenge, email Judy with your title of the quilt.  Don't forget that it cannot be the title of the play/novel/short story.  We have to honor those copyright laws!

So those participating, here is your list....
1)  Put on a sleeve, directions are in your packet.
2)  Fill out the paper work and don't forget to sign it!!
3)  Be prepared to have a head and shoulder picture made.
4)  Needle, thread and thimble to put label on.

I will probably not bring a project as I will be doing the photos of the quilts and checking the paper work.  See you there!!

Oh, if anyone has anything to add, put a comment on the bottom.

See what a good time we have!!

March 2013 Show and Tell

Hey all,

We had a smaller group with the change of date and beginning of Spring break.  Don't forget that the next meeting is our workshop day on March 23.  Tennessee Williams challenge is due.  Even if you have shown the quilt, bring it, the paperwork, and be ready to take a head and shoulder's picture.

Finished the binding on this quilt for Sharon.

Judy is giving this quilt to be quilted during pilgrimage, and if acceptable,
 to be donated to the Tennessee William's house.

March Meeting

Hey all,

Here are the notes for the meeting!!  Don't forget we will be meeting on the second Saturday from now to the foreseeable future, and that is this Saturday March 9!

Patti is leaving for Spring Break and will not be there. Bobbi has the demo. We are sill taking UFO sign ups.  There are extra UFO lists in closet if anyone needs and they can turn the slip in to Tonya along with their $5.  

We have a good lunch planned.  So come on out, we will have Sharon's quilt ready to sign and bind, I think.  We can sew on the raffle quilt, or bind the mile a minute quilt or bring your own project to do after lunch.  

So bring your show and tell, notebook, a beverage for lunch, and if you can stay after, you may want your machine.

By the way I gave the quilt  to the Tina for our "rent" and she was pleased.  Oh, and Columbus High IB Students Art show is on the main floor, take a few minutes and tour the show.  OK, I think that is everything...but if anyone has anything else to add put a comment on the page so everyone will know what is going on.


Congratulations Judy, Julia and Watana!!
