Our August 15 guild meeting will be a fun and social event with all members of the guild. We will not have a formal program this month, but instead will have several ways to tap the collective wisdom of our members.
- Bring your Stumpers - those unfinished projects that need a kickstart. You can get help with a technique that is giving you trouble, or ask for inspiration and suggestions for your next move on the project. We've all have those moments, so let the guild members help you over the hump.
- First and Worst Quilt Show. We were all once beginners. Let's have a fun showing of our first and/or worst quilts. Cristy will bring her 10th grade world history project, and discuss the underreported story of Sunbonnet Sue in the Renaissance.
- Sit and Sew - bring your handwork projects to work on during the meeting, and we'll have an opportunity to just chat and get to know fellow quilters.
And don't forget our Cuddle Quilt workshop scheduled for Saturday, August 27. We will meet at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church at 3204 Hixson Pike. We get started around 9:00 and stay till about 3:00 to work on our charity quilts for Chambliss Center for Children. Joann Lotan has a special quick quilt pattern called Summer at the Beach to demonstrate, along with precut strips, batting and backing fabrics. It's a great time for all of us, so plan to attend!
I hope to see everyone Monday August 15 AND Saturday August 27!
