There will be 2 sessions, 8 person max for each session. $70 for the class and a $65 materials fee (well worth it) to be paid directly to the instructor. And he is spending his birthday with us, so let’s make it a good one!

For our August meeting, we are asking you to bring a project you may be stuck on, or want an opinion or help on! Use our hive mind!
Crista and Jackie wanted us to break up into small groups for a little survey. Get some ideas for future workshops, classes, challenges etcera…count off to 5!

Catie has made so many quilts for Quilts for Kids it makes my head spin. Maybe we’d be interested in a mini retreat type thing to work on some? The founder, Linda, is offering to work on something together. Let’s talk about it.
Lancaster MA MQG show and Artisan market. Sept 29
As a special thank you, we’ve been working behind the scenes on a special quilt for Beth R. She was a member and so graciously hosted our guild meetings at Rock Paper Scissors before we outgrew it. A lot has changed since then, the store has since closed and she moved to DC, but we were lucky enough for her to have time stop in for a bit at this month’s meeting. She tried to sneak out, so we had to, not exactly smoothly, announce and give her her special quilt. I think she was a bit surprised. We are sure thankful for all did for the guild and glad you could make it back so we could give t to you in person!! We wish you all the best!
We give you, what we like to call, What Color is Your pickle?, or Beth’s Pickle Jar…
Take a kit or a top or something that needs to be quilted or bound and help us out!
We are getting a good collection of stuff to donate. Anyone have any ideas of where?
Who’s birthday is closest? Congrats to Jeanine- July 22 and happy early birthday!!
