On Tuesdays, the raffle committee continues to need help with the quilt construction. This is dragging on longer than we anticipated and gardening weather will fight for our attention soon. Eleanor and I would like some assistance with the borders of the 1st and 2nd prize quilts.
Wed. April 4th-Imagine me jumping up and down- merrily skipping a “happy Dance”. You will see both quilts tomorrow night and we will ask for volunteers to finish – Elenor and I are DONE,DONE<DONE!!!!
The Demo night on April 19th is a re-do of a program idea that we did many years ago. There will be 3-4 stations with a different demo at each.
WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR A SHORT DEMO OR 2 Yohoo ……are you out there eager to show a technique?
You will be divided into groups of 4-5 and go around the room to each topic. Each speaker will make their demo about 15 minutes each. If you have more questions after coffee break- I’m sure each teacher will be glad to answer questions.
The Saturday Workshop for April 14th is *how to enlarge a single block*. Most of the samples started as the usual 12 inch blocks that have been expanded to 24-36 inches. Emphasis will be on learning independence from magazine or pattern purchases. We’ll also pay close attention to construction and pressing for more success.
NO – THE DATE FOR THE SAT. WORKSHOP IS NOT A MISPRINT. This has been planned for the large number of guild members who DO NOT attend the Spring Retreat on Texada Is. Only about 1/3 of our members take in the spring cruise and get-away. This workshop is for those who want only a one day project. Go to my own personal blog to see photos of class samples. Handouts will be available at this Thursday’s business mtg.
I have not heard about the sign-up sheet for the Texada Retreat. Be sure to check the sheet at the Thurs. meeting for space and find out details on food and shared accomodations or car pooling.
