September 2010

36 member and 2 Guests where at the September 21 meeting.

Lorie and Kathy demonstrated the first month of the new Mystery quilt.

We had several ladies show their completed quilted bag from the August afternoon workshop

The Northern Country Crafters are having their craft show in the Creighton Community Hall on November 6th. The Guild will be renting 2 tables.

The guild is having their retreat on Nov 12 and 13th at the church.

Christmas Party items to remember included: the 8 1/2 inch Toy themed block, a blue fat quarter for the game, the scrap challenge (members make an item out of just their scraps and bring it to the party) and our Meals on Wheels place mats donation.

The Christmas party will be Wednesday December 15th.

The comfort block for September/October is displayed below. More kits are available for making maple leaf blocks for the Quilts of Valour.

A new project was introduced. An Alphabet quilt. This quilt will be entered in the next Juried Art Show. At the next meeting packets will be handed out with an alphabet letter and ideas for making 12 1/2 inch blocks. These blocks will be due in February.

The deadline for the blocks for the SPCA Raffle quilt is the October meeting so the quilt can be competed before Feb/March.

Comfort quilt to be completed and given to a young girl under going Chemo.

Members who bring cookies for the break are asked to bring a copy of the recipe. A cookbook of these recipes will be compiled to sell at the next quilt show.
The October program will be personal and guild quilting in the morning. Getting to know your sewing machine (bring your machine and manual) will be the afternoon activity. the evening topic will be stash management. (Bring your ideas to share of how you store your fabric)
