January 2018 – Upcoming Meeting

MEETING CANCELLED!

Our January meeting, we are having a Stash Sale.  What a great way to share your fabric with other members, and make way for more for yourself.  In January, there will be a workshop with Cathy Price called “Log Cabin Pillow with Button Closure”.  Hope to see you there and maybe there will be some finished pillows at the meeting as the workshop is January 20th, and the meeting is January 23rd.  There will be sign up sheets for the workshop with Bridget O’Flaherty “Landscape Thread Painting by Numbers”, and for Libs Elliot, who will be here in March.  In the winter months, our meetings are at 1pm, instead of in the evening.  Don’t forget to check out the Block of the Month and the Library.  Our QOTT Quilt Show will be held in July this year on the 13th, 14th, and 15th, at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre.  We will need lots of volunteers, lots of quilts, and lots of items made for sale at our Boutique.  Not a lot of time to prepare, but I know we are up for it.

Sept. 2017 Meeting Review

We have started our new year, and a new Block of the Month. Minerva gave us our first pattern, and it was a 3D pinwheel block.  Our Trunk Show, Mary Elizabeth Kinch, author of “Small Blocks, Stunning Quilts” showed us quilts with the tiniest blocks, and her quilts were captivating.  She also loves strip piecing and traditional hexagons, and the latter was her theme for the workshop the day after our meeting. All the pictures of her quilts, and the quilts from our Show & Tell, are all on our Facebook page under the Album “Show & Tell Sept. 2017”.  Go over and check them out. We were also informed that the UFO Challenge will once again be done this year. Our Christmas Sale & Luncheon will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm at Glad Tidings Pentacostal Church. C.

June 2017 Meeting Review

June was our annual Pot Luck, and everyone had a blast.  We had Mad About Patchwork for our Shop of the Month, always fun to have a quilt shop come to you.  We had some changes on the Executive, and got to meet the new members to the Executive team, and said Thank you to the ones passing on the reins.  We had 16 pieces brought in for the UFO Challenge, and all the pictures from these and the Show & Tell can be seen on our Facebook page.  C
