Standard

Silver Threads Quilt Guild, 14 July 2016 Meeting

 

6:30 pm, Pam called meeting to order.

Pam announced there was a request for the Pledge of Allegiance to be said at the beginning of each meeting.  Vote was held, passed, so the Pledge will be recited at the beginning of our meetings.

Membership.  Patty provided gifts to 6 members.

Program.  Sheri Easom (The Sewing Center) discussed Row By Row.  Shop owners must abide by rules.  Program begins with sign-up from November to January 1.  Program starts June 21, ends September 6.  November 1 can sell/email/mail the pattern.  See http://www.rowbyrowexperience.com for more information.

Sew Happenings.  Pam announced the information will be on the blog.  Newsletter will be on the website.  Ruthie’s will have a Brother event soon.

Door Prizes:  The Sewing Center door prize won by Barbie Ouellette.  Margie’s gift certificate won by Marie Robert.  Quilter’s Place gift card won by Barbara Simmons.  Stitcher’s Quest gift certificate won by Patty Roof.

Carol talked about a new store, The Sewing Corner, in the Miramar Beach area.

Block Swap.  Patriotic blocks, half-log-cabin.  All who made them came up for a photo.  Lyndell volunteered to assemble into a top.  Pam displayed August block – Twisted Pinwheel.  Use black solid, a tone-on-tone white, and any green.  Instructions will be on the blog.

Round Robin. Carol revealed the finished quilt top.  Nine showed tops in progress.  First person to complete (quilted and bound) and takes to Stitcher’s Quest will win a gift certificate.  Drawing won by Carolyn Urquhart.

Workshop.  Celeste showed two bags.  “Sew-together” bag is small with lots of zippers.  The “Sew Date” bag is bigger, a Kaufman pattern.  She asked all members to vote by putting their names into one of the bags and that would determine which one we’d make.  This workshop will be late September or early October.

Program, Stars & Stripes.  Celeste distributed a list of block names and asked all members to write down whether that block was composed of stars or stripes.  She revealed each block and awarded door prizes.  She also discussed how 2 blocks work together to form pleasing secondary patterns and displayed a 9-patch with snowball antique quilt.

Show & Tell.

Lyndell showed kits for blocks.  Blue and white or red/white/blue — take the kit, assemble the block, bring back, and she’ll assemble into a top and get it quilted for our charity projects.

Addie discussed change of structure of Kid Comfort program last December.  Does the guild want to continue making them?  Vote yes to continue to make kid comfort quilts.

Door prize (opportunity drawing) winners:  Paulena Melvin and Ruth Christensen.

Adjourned 8:00 PM

Media files

Dear guild members due to limited media space on the website (AKA – Blog) I had to remove old media (Photo’s). Dec 2012 to Dec 2015 have been removed from the blog. I have put all the media on the Facebook page in photo albums. I have also copied all the media to a Thumb drive that will be kept with the folder with the Website / blog notes. Any members who would like a copy can provide me with a thumb drive I will be happy to put them on the thumb drive for you. Sorry for any inconvenience.  Angel S

July 2016 Newsletter

Standard

Hello everyone hope you all had a great 4th of July celebrating with family and friends. This month bring your patriotic goods to show during show and tell and for us to celebrate our countries freedom a little longer.
This month’s program we will have a special guest, when she comes, she brings a wealth of knowledge with her. Sherri from the Around the Block Sewing Center will share with us the ins and outs of the famous Row by Row. .
Half the year has speed right past us and I am sure the other half will do the same. The remainder of the year we have lots of exciting things going on. We have a speaker coming in to show us a demo for quick curves, two members that will be doing programs, a fall workshop, another sit and sew, our challenge for the year and of course our Christmas party (you won’t want to miss, I promise).
Reminders
Block lottery for July was replaced by the patriotic 10 ½ x 12 ½ for quilt of valor. The instructions are on the blog and Facebook.
The Sip and Sew has been rescheduled for Sept 17th, 9 to 3 at Twisted Grape on Eglin Pkwy in Shalimar.
If you have something that you would like to see us do at our meetings please send me an email so that we can explore the idea.
