Show & Tell
October Program: Auction – Declutter! Purge! Be Zen!
Bring in your unwanted quilting fabric, threads, notions, semi-finished tops, orphan blocks, completed quilts, etc. so they can find life in a new home. (No Home Dec fabric, please.)
Mark the yardage of fabrics you put in the auction. This helps the auctioneer describe the item(s) and keeps things moving along!
21 October (Saturday) – Wreath-making class by Joan Carpenter.
16 November: Share Your Skills. Volunteers are needed – contact Tricia or Terry.
21 December: Christmas party and ornament swap.
New Mystery Quilt - Joan Carpenter
Joan is coordinating the new Mystery Quilt comprised of (6) installments. Because we are paying royalties to license this series, Joan must know how many people are participating. If you ARE doing this mystery, please contact Joan and let her know you are IN.
The first installment (Fabric Requirements and Step 1) was handed out at the September meeting and e-mailed on 26 September.
