February 2018 Meeting Reminder

Our February meeting will take place on Tuesday February 20th at 7pm!!

Doors open at 6:30 if you would like to come early for some pre-meeting sew-cializing!

Yard Sale: At our meeting we'll be hosting our second annual yard saleAll proceeds will be donated to the Guild to benefit Programs! You can get rid of your quilting cottons and flannel yardage, scraps of material in ziploc bags, (consider making themed bags-colors, styles of fabric, etc.), magazines that are five years old or newer, quilting and general sewing books, patterns and notions.  We ask that you price the notions yourself, the cashiers will price out everything else at checkout.

Spring Retreat: Registration for Spring Retreat is now open. You can register online here or pay by check at the February meeting. After the March meeting we will review room bookings; if rooms are available members will have the opportunity to invite non-member guests. If you are interested in inviting a non-member guest please let Alison know.

Giveaways and Raffles: Our giveaway item this month is an adorable sewing basket that comes with two patterns. 

* Raffle #1: Will be the new book, Modern Quilts: Designs of the new Century. This book was recently published by C&T Publishing and is a collection of quilts that were curated by the Modern Quilt Guild.
* Raffle #2: Four Fat Quarters and the Sea Star quilt pattern that was generously donated to our guild by Meadow Mist Designs. 

Upcoming Programming: We are planning an evening of binding for March so if you have a special trick or method that you'd like to share with the group please let Carolanne know.

We'll see you Tuesday at the First Baptist Church!
