Hello Fellow Quilters:

The March meeting was an success and a lot of possibilities was discussed.  Here are the details:

  1. Swaps will be every other month and they will be announced two months in advance.  Don’t forget to bring your pin cushion to the next meeting.
  2. The possibility of a Quilt Bee were discussed, such as the “Selfish Bee” or the “Celebration Bee.”   This topic will be revisited in the next meeting.
  3. The Charity Committee also presented a number of ideas that will be further explained in a survey.  Look out for that survey in your email inbox.
  4. The Guild will be collecting books for a library.  Kay Stephenson has volunteered to organize this effort.  If you spoke to her during the meeting about helping her with this effort, please leave a comment to this blog post.
  5. The date was set for our Sew into Spring Sew-In.  This Sew-In will be located at Fabricate Studios on April 13th from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.  A schedule will be sent a week prior to the event along with a lunch order form.
  6. Our President has asked each of us to create a fabric name tag.  You should check out our Pinterest board for free tutorials and inspiration.
