June Meeting

What a fun meeting tonight! There were only 20 members and one guest in attendance this evening but we had so many fun things to do. 
Highlights from the business meeting were the up and coming classes (more later with pics and info) and eleven of us had to purchase a name tag. Maybe we need to have a name tag challenge or class?
We need one or two people to sign up for the classes in August. Come on ladies, someone out there wants a new tuffet for the home or a new way to prepare appliques for sewing. So, who will sign up? We are going to have a great time. I believe that this is a teacher you won't want to miss.
We got to see the Beast to Beauty Challenge pieces. Very interesting creations that changed the ugly(beast) fabric into pretty (beauty) pieces.
Our program included Linda Garcia, Yvonne Rising and Judi Prukop shared techniques and new rulers with us. More later. 
Sorry you missed a great meeting, hope to see you next month.
Hello Everyone,
This is Cheryl and I am now the one responsible for the upkeep of our Blog.  It has been quite some time since anyone has updated this blog. I will do my best to keep you all informed and up to date.  I will start by adding the news from the Meeting this evening, Monday, June 8, 2015 @ 6:30 at the main meeting hall at Encore. This is not where we usually meet, go down Grace street in between  the white fences and go straight to the main hall.
Since there is wifi at the main hall, I will take my laptop and see how it goes to try and do this while we are at the meeting.
I am open to ideas and suggestions as to what you would like to see on these pages. I know we have some exciting classes coming up. I will get some pictures from Jan Beaman to post so all can see. One thing to remember is that you don't have to make a whole new quilt, you can learn some new techniques to incorporate into work you are already doing.
Retreat is also coming up quickly. Check with Judi Prukop for more information. 
Okay, more later. Happy quilting!
