Sorry I haven’t updated the blog lately. Here’s what is going on for the rest of this year and the start of 2019.
We have been working on Hometown Holiday items at our workshops. So this month’s workshop on October 27th will be the last for us to work on them as a group. If you haven’t completed your items for donation you only have about 1 ½ months to finish. If you don’t have anything to work on for HH, we have had a request for a couple more quilts for Eastman Funeral Homes and that is another project we can do as a group. They like the design of the ones we have been doing for Teen Challenge but they need to be at least 85” x 120”. We have fabric available at the church or you can piece some together from your own stash and then they can be stitched together. We would need 20 sections of the 2 long strips with the 6.5” blocks in between for 1 quilt. Bring them to the meetings whenever you can. As usual bring your sack lunch.
There is talk of going to the Amish Country Quilt Shop Hop Oct. 31 – Nov. 3. If all the shops are visited, it will take 2 days. Let Yvonne know if you would like to go along.
November 8th is our election of officers. If you would like to have an office please speak up. There is also the position of facebook admin, blog coordinator and media contact. We will also firm up our Christmas potluck and schedule for working at Hometown Holidays.
No workshop because of the Thanksgiving holiday.
December 1st is Hometown Holidays. Set up time is 8:00 a.m. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. and it runs until 2:00 p.m. (I think, will check on this). We will plan on schedules of 2 hour shifts including set up and pack up.
December 13th is our Christmas potluck starting at 6:00 p.m. at the church. We will be having games and it was suggested that we each bring a small wrapped gift for a prize. So far we have this as a menu:
Pulled pork sandwiches
Bring your own table service and drink.
No workshop for December, Merry Christmas!
January 10th is our first meeting of the new year with new officers taking office Rachenea is going to demonstrate the toothbrush technique. We will be making a hot pad and stay tuned for a supply list.
January 26th workshop project TBA.
If you would like to do a demonstration, please let me know.
We talked about doing a challenge this year. I have 2 in mind, the paint chip challenge that we have done before or the one yard fabric challenge. For the one yard fabric challenge we need at least 7 members participating.
We had one show and tell from Racheana.
The above quilt circles were pieced by a friend of a friend of Racheana's. She was asked to put it together and quilt it. I think she did a fantastic job.
If I missed anything let me know. Hope you can all make the last few meetings for this year.
