How to Get Over Your Bad Self
and Enter a Quilt Show

Come join us for our next Choo Choo Quilters meeting on Monday, January 18 and learn TWO important things! Our program will be Entering a Juried Quilt Show For Fame and Fortune. We'll have a discussion of what information you need for the application, tips for photography, technical details for an online application, and additional details after your quilt is accepted into the show. Much like the Powerball lottery, you can't win a quilt show if you don't enter, so let's de-mystify the process.

Also at the January meeting will be the kickoff to our 2016 Mystery Quilt. We will have 6 months of instructions for our quilt pattern, then you will have the last half of the year to assemble and quilt your creation. You will want to stay current on this project and see what everyone does with the same parts but different fabrics.

Veronica will be taking photos for our Choo Choo Directory, so put on your lipstick and bring a quilt for the background of your photo. For those of us with troublesome memories, these photo directories are a wonderful thing!

Come join us for the first meeting of our new year!
