January Recap

I’m so sorry this late guys!!! Life and germs have gotten in the way. Oh, and snow. Lots and lots of snow, right?

So I’m going to make this super quick, and again my apologies. Next month, Marisa takes back over, and she does a much better job. πŸ˜€

Julie was eliciting advice from the guild on how to proceed with her quilt.

Julie was eliciting advice from the guild on how to proceed with her quilt.

Dues are due in!!! $40 for the year. These are necessary for you to be considered a member in good standing. Without paying dues you will not be eligible to vote in guild matters, or win any prizes!

We will be doing a BOM starting in March. As a guild, we voted, and The Summer Sampler Series is the winner. More details to come soon!!!

We still need volunteers for a Gallery at Franklin Mill Store!!! Quilts can be any style, any size – they just need a hanging sleeve (and that can be pinned on). See Sarah for more details if you’re interested.

Under discussion was several topics for future programming ideas. Learning more about Modern Quilting, Color Theory, Garment sewing, free motion quilting, applique, quilt as you go, and scrappy improv were all suggested. More details and information will be available on these, once I figure them out. πŸ™‚ Until then – keep the ideas coming!!! And if you have specific projects in mind for these, even better!!!! πŸ˜€

February will be our Name Tag Challenge, so make sure you’re wearing yours for a chance to win a prize!
