The March newsletter was emailed on 2/22 (a bit early).

Highlights:

Show Committee meeting details are in the newsletter. Raffle tickets have been mailed to each member. If you need additional tickets, please contact Corinne. The guild is seeking volunteers to sell tickets at stores and festivals, etc. If you are willing to help out, please let Corinne or Judy know. If you have suggestions about other places to sell, please let our co-chairs know.

Show flyers and notices have been printes and are being sent to quilt shops, guilds, and local guilds who have upcoming shows.

If you know of any good places for us to send flyers or if you would like copies to bring or mail, contact Corinne for hard copies or download a copy at the link below:

March Programs:

The deadline for signing up for the barn quilt painting workshop, given by Karyn Wutch, is March 9th (the date of our meeting). Workshop will be held on March 26th at the schoolhouse. Snow date April 2nd. Fee for the workshop is $35 and includes all your supplies, so you don't need to bring anything except your lunch. Several patterns will be provided from which you may choose. This workshop is limited to 20 people, so don't hesitate!

March show and tell will be all about applique. Members will show examples of their hand applique work and answer questions about the process. Some members will be newly back from the Applique Academy (run by our show guest speaker, Barbara Blanton) and will talk about their experience and show some works in progress. Please bring your hand applique projects to show as well!

The committee is planning a sequence of hand applique how-to-do-it programs for April, May, July and August -- all leading up to our September applique workshop which will be taught by applique expert Barbara Blanton. We will still have our general show-and-tell at the meeting, so bring your non-applique projects too!

 

Web Page Committee Members Needed

We are looking to form a web page committee to assist Maureen with the web page content. You don't need to know how to do a webpage - you just need to share your ideas for promoting the guild. If you are interested, please contact Corinne.

 

More info is in the email newsletter.

Note: If you have items to be included in the newsletter, please email them to Susan before the 30th of each month.
