september meeting.

The September meeting is less than a week away! Can you feel the excitement in the air? We have a lot of fun things planned for our first get-together of the new guild year. Here's what's on the agenda for Tuesday night:

  • Improv Scrap Swap: it's time to swap improv projects with your partners! Last time we had a swap it was a lot of fun, and we are looking forward to seeing all of the great ideas you had for each other's scraps! 
    • If you are unable to make the meeting, please try to give your project to a friend to bring to the meeting. Or drop your project off at Pieceful Quilting ahead of time. We would like everyone who participated to have the experience of receiving a swap project at the meeting!
  • Short Film: Have you ever thought about how all of that glorious fabric sitting in your stash was made? This interesting short film will shed some light on the topic "How Fabric is Made."
  • Membership Renewal: It's the start of a new year. That means registration fees are due. The fee for this year will be $50 (a bit higher than years past). The goal is to bring you great speakers, quality programming and better events with the additional funds.
  • Skill Builder BOM: This year's Block of the Month will be geared toward building skills. You will learn new techniques; modern concepts for creating your own "grid" design; how to reduce and enlarge a block pattern; and have a lot of fun!
  • Generation Q Magazine Block Challenge: Did you work on your Generation Q block? You remember. . . the winner from our block-design contest during our last meeting? Bring us your blocks (if you made one), and we will collect the blocks to make a quilt for charity!
  • Show and Share: What have you been up to this summer? Please bring projects to share, big and small.
  • Raffle: Each month, one member will destash for a good cause - LIMOD! Raffle tickets will be 1/$1 or 6/$5. All proceeds collected will go toward making the guild better and brighter! Bring some spare change and you could walk out a winner. Remember: One Gal's De-stash Is Another Gal's Treasure! 
Can't wait to see you on Tuesday! We've missed you!
