April 2018 Show and Tell

 Today, our meeting was held by Jennifer S,  as our Coordinator is basking in the sunlight of the South.  Great job Jennifer.

 The workshop today was lead by Cecile G with more than 20 participants.   Cecile's Stack 'n Whack was enjoyed by all and stay tuned for the results in months to come!grouping.   There was an explanation by Margie C regarding next month's workshop.

 We had a good size Show and Tell by members with lots of enthusiasm.

Next month's workshop

Margie C will be teaching the Bargello runner next Guild meeting which is May 7th NOT may 14th!  All that you need for this runner is 2 strips that are 2 1/2 inches of 10 different fabrics.  Have a look at the gradation in Margie's. She used greens and blues but of course, you can use any combination of colours.

March 2018 Show and Tell

This month's meeting began with a moment of silence for our friend and fellow member Sandra Tucker who died last week after a brief illness.
A short business meeting was then held with input and reading of last month's minutes, workshops, charity day, and thank you notes.  Then the lucky winner of this month's fabric draw was selected...Bertha M!! Congratulations!
A showing of our quilts was done, and the meeting was adjourned.
