Our next workshop in on March 24th from 9 - ? We will be cutting strips for a Teen Challenge quilt. Bring your mats, rotary cutters and rulers. These strips will be used at our quilt show for a demonstration. If there is anything else someone would like to do for a demo, please let me know. We will need to set up a couple tables either in the sanctuary or nearby.
Next regular meeting is April 12th. We will be making the final decisions on how we are setting up for the quilt show. Also we will be deciding on who will be driving for the Quilt and Cuisine Shop Hop on April 14th. We have 9 people going. We will be meeting in the church parking lot so we can leave by 8:00 a.m. so please be early. The shop hop is an all day event with 5 shops participating from 8:30 to 3:00 with a quilt show and food sampling at 3:00 p.m. The daily drawings for prizes will be at 4:00 and we don’t expect to be home until 6:00 p.m. or after.
The quilt show is on Saturday, April 21st from 10 – 2 at the New London Alliance Church. Set up times are on Friday, April 20th from 4 – 6. We will need to move chairs and set up a table(s) for demonstrations. Bring your quilts at this time. Please get your quilt forms in to me as soon as possible. So far we have 34 quilts to be displayed. Bring as many as you want, we need to fill up the sanctuary. Arrival time for us on Saturday is 9:00 a.m. to do any final preparations. We will also be presenting the wall hanging to the church that morning. If you need a lunch or snack, please feel free to bring it. The youth will not be doing their coffee shop this year.
Since we are doing the quilt show in April, there will be no workshop that month.
There is nothing planned for our May 10th meeting or our May 26th workshop. If you have a demonstration you would like to do for us, please let me know.
Same goes for our June 14th meeting and June 23rd workshop.
July workshop is on the 28th. For the workshop we will be having a batik demonstration by Anne Cornejo from Lunn Fabrics Shop in Lancaster, Ohio. We are planning on inviting local quilt guilds to join us at 10:00 for this program. I’ll need contact info for the other guilds, so if anyone has that, please let me know. We can include Uniontown, Bellevue, Shelby, Wellington and any others you can think of. There’s no guild in Norwalk that I know of. We can also put up a couple flyers in the area quilt shops. If possible we’d like a head count so we can have enough chairs set up. We are also talking about offering doughnuts, coffee and water. We will need to get a price from Millers so if anyone wants to volunteer to do this please let me know asap. We can get bottles of water, cups, napkins, coffee, sugar and creamers from Wal-Mart. I’m sure the church will let us use a large coffee maker, if not I have one.
That’s all we have planned so far for this year.
We had one show and tell from Pat.
Pat quilted this cute busy bee quilt. It's just adorable!
See you at the workshop!
