September 11, 2014 Meeting

Standard

October is here and our much anticipated challenge quilts will be on display! Please bring your finished quilts in a brown paper bag on October 9 and give to Kerry! So much fun! It seems such a short time since the last meeting and I hope you have been busy working on finishing up pillowcases, stockings and charity quilts.

On our slate for October 25 is a last sit and sew to work on those projects! It will be held at the American Legion on Hollywood and I understand they make yummy lunches there. If you are coming to work on charity quilts, etc, the guild will pay for your lunch. There may even be some new strippy quilt patterns there to use!

We’ll be distributing to our charities during the month of November. Ken Hair, from Children in Crisis, will be our speaker on Nov 13.

Our Christmas Party is Dec 11. It will be a pot luck with a $15 sewing related gift exchange! See you soon!

Guild Program September 11, 2014

I frequently hear people asking where a certain quilt design or pattern came from. The answer is “I found this great book, it has some of the neatest designs in it”). Or “I subscribe to a magazine that always has wonderful quilt patterns that I get my ideas from.”

For our September 11 guild meeting I would like for you to please bring your favorite quilting book; tell us why you like it and what you learned from it; and if you still have a quilt made from the book, bring that as well. This is a great way for others in the guild to learn about what’s out there they may not have known about.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the great books you bring. Thanks, and see you in September.

Updated information for August 2014

Standard

Greetings and its August and the summer is nearing an end!

Our meeting is August 14 and our speaker will be Dr. Rachel Hutchison who is a chiropractor. She is going to talk to us about how to sit comfortably while we are sewing and other things to protect our backs! I don’t know about you but I could use a lot of help in that area!

This coming Saturday, August 9 is guild day at Ruthie’s in Baker. We have about 6 members already attending but if you would like to go for a free day of sewing and instruction, please call Ruthie. http://www.ruthiesnotions.com/#flou

The instructor is said to be a lot of fun and you don’t have to take anything with you. Ruthie provides all the tools and machines as well as lunch! I don’t think I can make it but maybe another day. Thank you Linda Frick for letting us know!

We had a lively assortment of sewers at our charity workshop in July. Edith has organized the strips of fabric by color! And we have some pillowcase kits and quilt kits ready for you to take. We were also able to get two more rolls of batting at a reasonable price so if you need any, bring your measurements!

Doris Bates has surgery last month and continues her physical therapy at Westwood Rehab on Mar Walt Drive. If you have a chance, drop by to see her. Kerry Kastl is having surgery this month as well. June Scroggin is recovering nicely from her surgery last month. I hope that is it for illness!

See you soon! Carol

Ruthie is having her annual Quilters Guild Appreciation Day event next weekend, Aug 8 or 9. Ruthie called me to find out how many are coming from my guild. Could we send out this information to the members inboxes so they can see it? I don’t think posting on the Blog will get quick enough reaction. I hope we can get enough people interested who would want to attend. Maybe we can get enough people together and maybe carpool. I know Shirley, Cindy, Patty, Becky and I are going together. It would be great to get 15 people and we could get a machine. I kinda need to let her know so she will have enough machines available. She told me there is a Guild from Panama City coming with 33 people on Friday and another one with 17 people coming on Friday. I’m thinking Saturday would be a better day to go since there are so many already coming Friday. And besides, Saturday isn’t a work day so maybe more people would come. Can we ask members to RSVP so we’ll know.

Can we get Pam to send out this notice? This is a link to her website with a list of all the classes she has going the rest of this year. Most of them are free!

Linda Frick.

http://www.ruthiesnotions.com/#flou . This lady was at Ruthie’s earlier this year and was a blast. She has gorgeous fabric and wonderful ideas. It would be a fun day out and a lot of fun.

Calling all quilters! August 9 is a Guild appreciation Day at Ruthie’s notions in Baker. Five of our members are already attending! Can we muster 10 more folks so that our guild can win a free sewing machine? We have selected Aug 9 for the day our guild members should attend. Please call and make reservations to Ruthie and let me know if you can go. I’m thinking this is the year I might be able to attend. I could use a relaxing day of sewing! Carol

Her fee is generous but she has agreed to reduce it for our guild if we can line up 10

Folks to have quilts appraised. She charges $45 per appraisal. I had her appraise two of my own quilts a few years ago at the Flying Needles Retreat and she is very knowledgeable. And I appreciated the information she gave me on these treasured items.

I think we owe it to ourselves as a guild to have someone special like Alma speak to us. We have worked hard the past two years, making charitable quilts, pillowcases and stockings and I would love to see us rewarded. We all enjoyed Karen from NanaGirl Quilts who spoke to us early this year and we did have to pay her to come over.

Please let me know by Tuesday, July 15, if you might have a quilt that you would be glad to have appraised by Alma. We can also contact Flying Needles to see if anyone would be interested from there. And then we can advertise in the newspaper if we need to.

Let me (496-1770) or Kerry (650-9611) know by Tuesday.

Thanks,

Carol Stearns

 

Members recovery from illness

Doris Bates fell and broke her hip and was in hospital.  Not sure if she is still there or not.  Her daughter will be bringing some things on Saturday to the workshop.  June Scroggin had surgery to remove her thyroid on Monday, no cancer.  She is doing well.  I visited her yesterday.  I sent Doris a card.  Carol

 

SIT AND SEW ON SATURDAY

We have reserved the Moose Lodge on Saturday, July 19. It is short notice but please come and sew with us! I am working on pillowcases and stockings and maybe a charity quilt or two. We will have strips and fabric for strippy quilts! If you need some batting for a project, stop by to get some! Lunch will be provided by the guild. What better time to spend on a hot July Saturday than in air conditioned comfort with your sewing friends! Come and join us! Carol
