We will be opening at the doors at 6 p.m. to take registration for the Scraptacular Block Party Quilt Retreat. A deposit of $50 must be paid prior to choosing your seats. You cannot sign up for someone else's seat unless you have their receipt with you!

Hello to Everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed Ann Loveless. The ladies who took the workshop had a great time. Those who took the Ann Loveless workshop are invited to bring their projects to show. We will show ours all at once rather than individually. We will have Show-and-Tell in October, but since we have a speaker, we are limiting the number of items to show at 1 per person.
Below is the current meeting agenda for the remainder of 2021 and 2022. I will have sign-up sheets for the first two workshops of 2022.
Coming in October is a lecture and trunk show by Color Girl Quilts, Sharon McConnell. Sharon will be doing a lecture and trunk show, and then she will have items such as fabric bundles, rulers, patterns, etc. to sell. If you would like to know more about Sharon and Color Girl Quilts, take a peek here: colorgirlquilts.com or @colorgirlquilts. You can also check Sharon out on You Tube: https://tinyurl.com/yckqchdn. This meeting will be interesting and enjoyable. Just to repeat, at the October meeting we will have a brief Show-and-Tell. Please bring only one item to show and save the rest for our December meeting.
November brings Nancy Mahoney with a trunk show and two workshops. Her “Wild Waves” workshop is filled up with a waiting list, but you can still sign up for the “Twisted Triangles” workshop. Both the presentation and the workshops by this fabulous nationally-known quilter are sure to be fantastic.
December will be our traditional Carry-In and Show and Tell.
