The first meeting of our year on September 10th is fast approaching. There will be a lot going on at this first meeting, and I wanted to give a bit of a heads up as to what's going on, and what you need to remember to bring.
First off, if you haven't sent them in already, go to the right hand side bar of the blog and print off the membership renewal form, and also the volunteer form. Teresa will be collecting these, as well as your membership fees.
Second, the program committee will have sign up sheets ready for the upcoming workshops, so come prepared with cash or cheque to sign up. Cynthia McNair, our speaker for this meeting, will be offering a workshop called "Manipulated Landscapes" in October. Karen Howes, our speaker for November, will be doing a workshop on English Paper Piecing.
Third, remember to bring your name tag and your chatelaine. You'll get free tickets for the fat quarter draw for each of those items. There will be tea and juice and water and goodies at this meeting, so remember to bring your own tea cup.
Fourth, the notion of the month is Apples. Bring one, or a bag of them. They will be donated to the Food Bank.
Fifth, for those of you who were working on the Canadiana quilt last year, bring your quilt tops or finished quilts to the meeting so we can all see and admire.
As always, there will be show and share for quilts you have been working on. Keep to two items per person, so that everyone who wants to share, will have the opportunity.
See you all on Thursday.
