October Sew In Metting Recap

This months meeting was our quaterly open sew. For all that weren’t able to attend, you were missed. What a wonderful fun time getting to know everyone and watch them working.  We also began work on laying out our Guild Quilt at our open sew on Saturday.

Also look for an upcoming blog post on how to download the Instagram App onto your phones and set up your username. During our meeting we will be having  a Instagram 101.

No November Swap. Swaps will be returning 2015.

December Meeting will be our Holiday Swap

January will be our quarterly Open Sew

We have decided not to participate in this years Quilt Con Charity Quilt. With the deadline for the quilt being Jan 3rd we just felt we would not have enough time to prepare a quilt.

Thank you for all the work on the charity quilts. They are all beautiful and will be very much appreciated by their recipients.

Also, a HUGE thank you to the LDS church for allowing us to use their gymnasium.
