August 19 - Picnic in the Park Quilt Challenge

Our next guild meeting will feature the "Picnic in the Park" quilt challenge.  No, we won't be having an actual picnic, but will have a mini quilt show to showcase the quilts or other items those participating in the challenge have created.  Everyone present will receive tickets to vote on their favorites.  Winners will be awarded with ribbons and cash prizes for first, second and third place!  This challenge was established to raise money to offset the missing Ways and Means table the first half of the year, and to give an opportunity for members to enter quilts into a "non-threatening" mini quilt show.  Join the fun in August.  Can't wait to see what everyone's creativity will bring!

We will NOT have an official workshop on the 19th, but will be using Fenn Hall from 10:00 to 4:00 to work on Disaster Relief quilts.  Bring your sewing machines to work on your projects.  We'll have a few kits for you to work on if you don't have one of your own.  We may need to tie some of the pieced tops, and if so, we'll have work stations set up and supplies for quilt tying.  See you in August!
