October News

Oh me oh my, it is the third week of October - Quilt Guild Meeting week!

We will be meeting in room 201 of PNCA (1241 NW Johnson St) from 7-9 pm this Thursday, October 20. We have a special request this month - PNCA is hosting an event in their commons space during the time that we arrive for the meeting and they need us to be quiet as we make our way upstairs to our meeting.

Now, some reminders: if you want to participate in the December swap, your baggie of fabric is due at the October meeting. If you forgot to grab a baggie at the last meeting - that is okay, just fill a sandwich-sized plastic zip bag with fabric you love (it can be scraps) and bring it to the meeting where we will have the info sheets to add to your bag. Don't have a plastic baggie, just bring some of your scraps and we will have some spare baggies too.

If you are scratching your head about this swap... last November we swapped fabric stuffed baggies and in December we all got something back made with our fabric (check out the goodies made last December). We heard that the time frame was too short so this year we decided to do the initial swap in October, giving us two months to make the swap-gift for another member. So stuff that baggie with fabric that you like!

And one of the days we all wait for is at the end of the week: a PMQG All Day Sew! This Saturday (10/22) starting at 9 am we meet at Fabric Depot (700 SE 122nd Ave). The event is free for members and $10 for non-members. There are plenty of tables but remember to bring your sewing machine and any needed accessories (bobbins, pins, presser feet, thread, scissors). If you can bring an iron or extension cord that would be great too.
