News and Announcements

January Block:
Each month members have been creating a modern interpretation of a traditional block – and sometimes entire quilts or projects with that interpretation.  The block for January is Lone Star. (Earlier this year everyone put the name of a block on a slip of paper – from that list, we will draw a new block for February at the meeting.)

Nametag Activity:

Please bring a 5″ square with a design in the center of the block and a border around the design.  It is suggested that the border be a lighter color. No sewing supplies needed, but if you have a small cutting mat/ruler/rotary cutter, please bring that.  If you have a nametag you love, please bring it to share.*

Break

Fat Quarter Swap – bring a modern fabric fat quarter, take one home!*

Show and Tell*

*Please note that participation in all activities is optional. Snack policy is to bring your own snack, however; if you bring a snack to share it will be appreciated and consumed!

From Callie Lavoie at Maine Quilts – can you help?  

“I am looking for a Shipped Quilts volunteer. Task is to accept delivery of 20 -30 quilts (usually) in July, deliver to the Civic Center Wednesday morning of hanging day by 9 a.m. and pickup on Sunday night to mail back to the registrant. I need to find someone in the next 30 days for quilt registration purposes. Any ideas or names I can call? It is not a long task, just during July with a 10 day window to accept delivery. “

Really appreciate it!
Callie
