Next Meeting: Thursday, January 14, 7PM

Rummage Sale and Quilt Bingo

Clean out your sewing rooms and give a little back to raise money for our Outreach programs! Every January, we ask you, our members to find a few quilty items that you no longer want or need and bundle, bag or wrap it up and price it for the rummage sale. It can be anything quilt related from scraps of fabrics to used magazines, books or notions. Lots of great bargains! So bring a little bit of spending money, too!


Quilt Bingo

Make your own fabric Bingo card and bring some buttons or pennies as markers. Always a fun time with lots of fat quarter prizes! Just click here for instructions on how to make a fabric bingo card!


*Please note, it was brought to our attention last year, that we had missed the 'Dot" category in our instructions, we have now removed the 'Dot' cards and are including dots under 'Geometrics'. This is so no one has to make new bingo cards. 'Geometrics' now includes polka dots, squares, triangles, and shapes that do not resemble anything else, it could even be swirls, zigzags or wiggly lines.

Secret Notion

Bring in a strip of fabric 2.5 inches wide by width of fabric (WOF). These will all be pooled together, divided into 3 bags full and drawn as prizes! Woohoo! More giveaways! You are probably thinking, what could I make from a bag full of 2.5 inch scrappy strips, check out Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Bargello quilt for this free pattern. When you bring a Secret Notion, name tag, and guild chatelaine you will receive tickets for the fat quarter draw.


Row Robin

For those participating, your first row is due for exchange! Groups will meet at break time to exchange their rows.


Fabric Postcards

Drop off a fabric postcard in the mailbox at the registration table and receive one back in real mail!


Show and Share
