Under CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Board has decided to cancel our 2 March events: the regular meeting on Thursday March 19, and Janet Van Treuren’s bag-making workshop on Saturday March 28. Full refunds will be issued to all those who signed up for the workshop.
The medical community recommends minimizing social contact, which means limiting all social engagements including intimate gatherings among friends. While no one seems to know how bad the pandemic will be or how long it will last, everyone seems to agree that it will get worse before it gets better. We hope that warmer weather will work in our favor.
Meanwhile, as we individually practice “social distancing”, we want no one to feel isolated, so the Board is working to find safe ways to stay in contact and share our guild spirit.
On Thursday March 19th, instead of meeting in person, we’re gonna s-t-r-e-t-c-h those technical skills and host a live online meeting from 7:15 to about 9.
Crista is spearheading this and will send detailed information about joining the meeting using your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Please send pictures of your UFO project and any items you planned on bringing to Show and Tell to email@example.com. Block Lotto is postponed until next month – so you have extra time!!
We urge all members to take appropriate precautions to stay safe and healthy.
Over the course of the year, we’ll “assign” blocks and give parameters with specific block sizes and colors (if applicable). Those who want to participate should make as many of the assigned block as they wish and bring them to the meeting at which they’re due (March 19). Each finished block is worth one ticket. All of the tickets will be put into a drawing, and the person with the winning ticket wins all of the blocks! Depending on the number of blocks we receive, we may choose to split them among multiple people (for instance, if we have enough blocks to make two throw quilts, they’ll be split between two winners).
Choose your favorite fabrics for the plus signs
Please use white or low volume white background fabrics for the background fabrics
The block should measure 12.5” x 12.5” which includes a ¼” seam allowance
The more blocks you make, the more tickets you receive and therefore the more chances you have to win all of the blocks that have been contributed. Please consider participating to make this a fun and successful activity for our guild.
