October Meeting

I want to start this post with a big THANK YOU to one of our guild members.  I was planning on mentioning this at the guild meeting but totally forgot as the quilts she worked on were not at the meeting.
So Thank-You Marg H. for all the work you have done on our Comfort Quilts, especially the 17 Ragtime quilts you wash, mended and found homes for.  This bouquet of flowers is for you.  I'm sure you are glad to not have the flannel fluff all over you and your house anymore!

Below is a picture of 6 of the comfort quilts that will be donated to a family of 6 orphans, each one labeled with the childs name.

We had a fantastic response to our request of Pet themed blocks to make an SPCA raffle quilt.  These blocks will be made into a quilt in the next two months so we can have it ready to donate in the spring.
We will be participating in the Northern Country Crafters Show at the Creighton Community Hall on Saturday November 6 from 10am to 4pm.  This is the one day we will be selling tickets on our Irish Chain quilt so please stop by and get a few tickets, the draw is at 4pm that day. If you have any quilted items you would like to sell please contact me (Kathy) and bring you items to the Hall on the 6th at 8:30.

We have a Retreat planned at the church on Nov 12 and 13 from 9am to 9pm each day.  We are having a Pot Luck supper on the 12th so if you find you can make it please come with some goodies and join in the fun!

We will be having an executive meeting at 5pm on November 16th ( guild day) and it is open to all members.

Reminder that our December meeting date has changed and it is now on Wednesday December 15th.
Activities planned for the Christmas party are the Christmas Craft, 8 1/2" Toy Block Contest, Scrappy Challenge, Blue Fat Quarter Exchange, Silent Auction and Meals on Wheels Placemats donation.
And don't forget to bring a guest to the Christmas party!
Here is a picture of the three Disappearing Nine Patch quilts that were made at the Culture Days Quilting Station in September.

Part 2 of the Mystery Quilt was demostrated and all the members were excited to see we were starting with Flying Geese!!  Okay maybe we were the only ones excited but we tried this new 'No Crumbs' method and gave it two thumbs up.  Hope the guild members participating do too.
The new Northern Alphabet quilt has started and members randomly picked there letters.  There are a few letters left so it is not to late to join in.
