Welcome back Holly Berry Members after a hot, hot Summer! Hope everyone had a chance to do some quilting in spite of the oppressive heat and humidity! It will be great to see everyone back and get back to our routine.
Our Fall 2018 schedule is all set to go and we are working on putting the finishing touches on the 2019 programs schedule. Not to let the cat out of the bag for 2019 but we have a quilt shop coming to vend and a few great workshops lined up. We are also fortunate to have such talented members who have volunteered to share their skills with us. Programs never sleep!
This meeting is a busy one! We have the introduction of board and committee people, member sign-ups and renewals, Secret Sister, UFO, Hospitality and Mystery Quilt signups. Plus we will all be catching up with members we have not seen since June.
Because this is such a hectic meeting and there is so much going on, there will be NO SHOW N TELL.
Let’s eat, drink and be merry!
The Resin Sea Glass Workshop is immediately after the meeting.
This meeting is devoted to Show N Tell! Please bring your Summer projects, Barnstable County Fair entries ( there were ribbons and bowls!) , Bayberry Quilt Show entries, your Mystery Quilt if you had not finished it for the June Show N Tell. The more Show N Tells, the merrier.
Linda Creed will be doing a demo on a Folded Star Ornament. This requires no sewing, just folding fabric strips, weaving, clips and a bit of glue. Two coordinating Holiday fabrics look nice. If you want to participate, cut 4 strips 4” x 16”. Additional instructions will be e mailed before the meeting.
The second Resin Sea Glass workshop will be held after the meeting.
Cathy Racine from the Charlton Sewing Center is coming to our Guild to do a lecture and workshop on Exploring Decorative Threads. She will talk about stitch length, width and density and how they change the look of decorative thread.
The workshop is after the meeting and runs approximately 2-3 hours. The class size is limited to 15. There is a $5.00 kit fee. You will need your sewing machine. Further instructions will be e mailed to those who sign up. Please sign up with Deborah Winograd.
We stopped at Charlton Sewing Center on the Shop Hop and got serenaded by Cathy who played the beautiful organ. She will not bring her organ but will bring her knowledge and sense of humor.
Ways N Means
The Guild’s ever popular Ways N Means is a great way to Fall clean your sewing room. If you have fabric, notions, yarn, etc that you want to get “rid” of to make room for more stuff, bring it on! No magazines, please. Fabric needs to be bundled and marked to indicate the yardage. Members always bring great stuff and we always leave with bargains and finds. Raffle ticket pricing and information will be presented by Mary Ann Karpinski before the Ways N Means.
Our wonderful Holiday Luncheon! The luncheon is catered. Please read the Hospitality information in the newsletter. Please remember your Secret Sister.
