They are listed on the membership page linked above.
~Your new guild board has been working on several new ideas for the year and we're excited to introduce them to you!
Presentations: Kimberly and Amber will have a fun presentation on pieced quilt backs, we will introduce a new Block of the Month Program, and we will also share some charity quilting ideas!
Madrona Road Challenge: Don't forget to bring your Madrona Road finished mini quilts to the meeting to share in the group picture! If you have not received your fabric yet and you signed up originally or were on the wait list, we will have fabric for you at the meeting. We may have a few extra sets for other paid members who are interested in doing the challenge. Violet Craft, designer of Madrona Road, will be at the meeting to talk about the challenge and answer any questions.
Charity Idea: If you've lost your quilty mojo on a project, never finished it, and kinda don't want to look at it anymore, please consider donating it for one of our new charity programs! We'll discuss this more at the upcoming meetings, but anytime during the year feel free to bring in orphan blocks, partially finished tops, and any coordinating fabric that might go along with it.
Sew Day: Save the date for our first Sew Day of the year! February 2nd at Fabric Depot, starting at 9:00 am!
Bradley Angle House: We will be accepting donations of fabric and other sewing/quilting supplies for Bradley Angle House. If you have anything you will not use, now is a great time to share it with someone who can!
