PLANNING YOUR SUMMER PROJECTS
Register Your Quilts - Our coming Quilt Show needs your work on display, there is space for approximately 200 quilts of all sizes. Please consider doing this over your summer to make Beatrice's job go smoother. Remember you should have received an email with an attached form to fill in for your registration, if you do not have it don't worry another will be sent out over the summer to remind you or you can contact Beatrice yourself at this email link email@example.com. Even if you are still working on a project please register it, if it does not get finished it it easier to remove the card than make one in a rush near the final date. Items for display include: small quilts, table runners, medium to large quilts, Guild Challenge (Sew that Tune), Anniversary project, bag/totes, pin cushion swap. Any questions please contact Karlie at this email link firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: If anyone needs help completing the online form please do not hesitate to ask, Lyn, Beatrice and Karlie are all available over the summer to assist you.
Add a little bling to your name badge or your lanyard by purchasing one of both of these pins from the registration desk $5.00 each.
Lanyard available at the registration desk for only $2.00. This is a great item to clip onto your name badge.
ANNIVERSARY PROJECT - Approximately one third of the guild members have made a small project with their piece of Anniversary Fabric. It would be great to have many more on display at the quilt show. Diane H has done a terrific job coordinating the sewing and quilting of a new table topper that will be displayed on the entrance table at the show. It is a small project to add to your list of to do's.
Calling all Members - It is always fun to sew something small quick and easy. So this is your chance to get in on a great PIN CUSHION SWAP. Find your favourite pattern or invent your own, sew it, stuff it and decorate it up. Please bring these to the September Meeting. We plan to have them on display at the quilt show in October and complete the SWAP during the November meeting. Please join in, the more the merrier.
Sew That Tune - Our Guild Challenge for the coming Quilt Show is 'Sew That Tune', we are sure you have heard all about it but incase you haven't or need to review the rules visit the June Newsletter or the Quilt Show page to get the details. Links to both pages are on the right.
So that's it, just four items on your summer to do list - have fun, see you in September.
