Can you believe it’s May already? What’s with the time flying by so quickly? Someone jump on the hands of a clock and hold them back so as to make things go just a tad slower—there are quilts and other assorted creative endeavors to pursue!
April was an exciting month for our guild even though the rain kept folks away from the meeting. Umbrella and shamrock blocks have been pouring in, and I’ve had some questions about the Tulip Block. The printable tutorial can be found here on the website and if you have trouble with that, let me know.
I’ll be missing from next months’ meeting, but I’m sure things will be in order with Carolyn as the “Prez”. The President’s Challenge for May will be a strippy, so be sure and leave with your project in hand.
At least a dozen of us fabric-loving ladies showed up to peruse the fabric selection at the First Christian Church. All of us left with a stack of fabrics and a promise to work on them. We sorted and organized and just know that the President’s Challenge for May is coming from those fabrics! We would like to hold a strip-and-stitch on a Saturday in June so that our working members can attend. If there is a particular Saturday you prefer, let us know.
Coming up for the month of June will be our guild’s birthday party; Carolyn will have details at the meeting. Have a great one!
Vice President: Carolyn
We had a great time at the spring workshop; I want to thank Carol for teaching the class and June for helping her. There were some beautiful bags, and I hope everyone who has finished theirs will bring them to show everyone. If you were unable to attend and paid for the class, I will have your pattern at the May meeting.

The Spring Workshop was a lot of fun—it was amazing to see all the different fabrics used for creating the Projects To Go Tote. I am planning a blog post featuring photos of the resulting bags. If you attended the workshop and would like your finished effort to be included, please either email me (address is in your membership booklet) a photo or bring your tote so I can photograph it for you.
If you have not done so, please make sure to subscribe in the lower right-hand column of the blog by entering your email address. Doing so keeps you from having to constantly check to see if new information has been posted as a private email will inform you of such.
