Don’t forget – Our July meeting is Tuesday, July 8th. Things to bring to the July meeting…
Pot luck dish to pass, place setting, BoM block, Past President Challenge blocks, completed pillow cases, basic hand sewing kit.
Members – we have discovered that the church will be having their pancake supper on our meeting night – March 4th. Unfortunately, this event takes place in Shilton Hall and kitchen. We apologize for this inconvenience to our members, but as they did not notify us of this conflict earlier, we have not been able to give our members more notice. We have agreed to switch our meeting room to the basement hall. THE DATE OF THE MEETING REMAINS UNCHANGED.
The direct entrance is through the doors at the southwest entrance on the Victoria Street side of the church. There are eight steps, a landing and four more steps to the hall. There is a limited kitchen facility, but we hope to offer coffee and cold beverages along with our snacks.
Again, we apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience. Our AGM and election of officers will take place as scheduled. We appreciate your cooperation.
Along with our QoM, Colour Theory Wrap Up, Block of the Month Introduction and Sunbonnet Sue Reveal and Block Draw, we have a Valentine’s craft on the February meeting agenda. If you’d like to make a Valentine’s basket, please bring a pair of scissors and a pencil to the meeting. We’ll have all the other supplies on hand.
REMINDER – our Fall Sit ‘n Sew takes place this Saturday (19th) at the Living Faith Presbyterian Church in Baxter between 10 and 4. (Doors open at 9:30). Morning snack/coffee/tea as well as cutting and pressing stations will be provided, bring your own lunch, machine (don’t forget the cords), and sewing kit. We’ll be working on Comfort Quilts (kits available), Santa Sacks and Christmas Stockings, all in support of My Sister’s Place. Our next presentation takes place at the December meeting. These sewing days are always lots of fun and comaradarie – and the weather looks like it’s going to cooperate with a cold, rainy day – perfect for being inside at our machines ! Hope to see you there !
We need several sheets (clean, but not necessarily your best linens) for Tuesday’s meeting to wrap the quilts for transport to the quilt show venue. If you have any you can lend us, please label them with your name and bring them along to the meeting on June 4th.
Thanks and see you then !
