January 2020 Guild Meeting – this week!

Reminder – our first meeting guild meeting of the year is this THURSDAY Jan 16

Where: Community Church of Cedar Grove, 65 Bowden Roadback at our “regular” spot

When: 7pm

Join us for our first guild meeting of 2020! We’ve got a lot to catch up on, with finishing demos hosted by our members, as well as some fun programming to talk about.

Bring your name tag, or if you need one – ask a board member and we’ll match you with a partner to make each other one.

Snacks – can’t stop/won’t stop and we all love them, especially if you’ve got something to celebrate, let us know so we can all cheer you on.

We’ve got our show and tell planned, if you’d like to share your make but have already gifted it away send Crista a photo (the sooner the better) to add into our slide show.

As you can see we’ve got a packed meeting planned, if we have a chance we’ll Ask The Guild a burning question – have something you’ve been needing to know? Give me a heads up so we can make sure we have the chance to get it answered!

Have a great week and see you soon!!

January Member Led Workshops!

Happy 2020! We have two workshops for our first guild event of the new decade!!! On January 25th, we will have two member led workshops taught by our talented members Betsy Vinegrad and Sue Erdreich.

Paper Piecing with Betsy
Paper piecing is a surprisingly easy technique for creating quilt blocks with precisely Betsy Paper Piecing.JPGmatched seams and perfect points.  We will be using Diane Bohn’s pattern called “My First Alphabet” in class.  A variety of simple and complex letters will be demonstrated during the workshop. Students will learn the basics and be able to tackle any paper pieced project.

**please note: students will receive a discount code to purchase the required alphabet pattern**
