February Meeting information

This month’s meeting is our annual rummage sale, the proceeds of which will go to financing stuff for the outreach committee, things like backings and battings and any fabrics needed. Please bring anything that you are interested in passing on to another quilter, whether it be fabric, books, patterns, magazines. I think it was approved that we could also bring yarn that might be looking to find new homes.  Please have prices displayed prominently on all your items, and price them to sell. Whatever doesn’t sell will need to be taken back home with you.
Because of the rummage sale, there won’t be a vendor this month. We’ll start the meeting with short reports from the various executive members and then go right to the rummage sale. There will be show and tell at the end of the meeting.
To go with February and Valentine’s Day, the notion of the month is anything “Hearts”.
Don’t forget about signing up for the various workshops that are happening in the next couple of months. At the end of February is this year’s version of the Scrap Challenge. Part of the challenge is not knowing what is going to be happening in it, so I can’t give you any more information about it. All who participated in last year’s challenge had a blast, so this should be a good one as well. In March there is a workshop scheduled by Al Cote for quilted rugs, which sounds fascinating. His website is here. In April Joni Newman will be doing a Stained Glass effect workshop. Her website is here. There are still seats available for the bus trip to Quilt Canada in Toronto in June.
As usual, if you bring the notion of the month, your name tag and chatelaine and your blog sampler blocks, you’ll receive a free ticket for the fat quarter draws.
See you Thursday, everyone.
