July Happenings....

  • Our meeting is taking place, as usual, on the first Thursday of the month, so don't forget your sew and tell.  Our program this month will be Paper Piecing, and Barbara Craig is giving a demonstration at the meeting. You don't need to bring anything.  Mark you calendars because there will be a follow up to the demonstration. A workshop will be held August 18th at the Maverick Library from 10a-2p.  
  • Don't forget to bring your BOM to the meeting. Remember July was quilter's choice, it only had to be 10.5" square.  Also, it needs to be red, white and/or black.
  • Quilt Con registration opens up August 1st, so if you plan to attend make sure you do this.  There is still no word on the cost for the event, so don't spend too much money on fabric during all of those Independence Day sales! :)
  • Debbie T. is our POC for the New Board Installation Tea.  It will  be before the guild meeting in August, so make plans to attend, because we'd love to see all of you there.  Please check with Debbie if you would like to bring some cookies or other needed supplies.
Happy Sewing!

June news....

If you missed the meeting last week, we had a few new people join us, and we look forward to seeing Rachel and Crystal again! Don't forget the agenda/meeting minutes are posted on FB.

Several things are happening this month, so make time to join us for a few of them:

  • Scrappy Bee is this Friday, June 15th @ Sara E's.  See our event on FB if you want to join in the fun.  
  • Binding and hanging sleeve workshop at the Maverick Library on the June 23rd.  See our FB page for times and supply lists.
  • BOM - quilter's choice!  Anna has several posted here, so check it out or do one of your own.  The only requirement is it needs to be 10.5"
It looks like our July meeting takes place the day after 4th of July, so stay tuned to see if plans change, but for now, the meeting is on!

Debbie T has a sign up sheet floating around for a tea taking place during the August installation of the new board, so if you're interested, please connect with her on FB.

Eileen posted a bus resource for the Houston Quilt Festival if you're interested on FB, so check it out.

Sarah J is heading up a challenge for the guild.  She's asked that you message her if you interested to take the challenge and pony up some dough.  I mean that in multiple senses of the word!

Alright people, June is almost halfway gone!  Boy time flies....until next time....
