August 14, 2014 meeting

August 20, 2014

Challenge: After reviews and hearing from guild members, we have decided not to make changes to the challenge and the requirements are as published in the newsletter.

Volunteer: I would like a volunteer to establish a committee and line up a slate of officers for next year. If you would like to do this, please let me know. Carol

 

From Kerry Kastl:

 

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.

 

Kerry
