MARK YOUR CALENDARS:

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2017

 Jelly Roll Sew Off.  Bring a jelly roll of pre-cut strips or your own strips 2.5″ x WOF.  A variety of lengths is just fine too.  Forty strips will generally make a 50″ x 60″ quilt depending on the length of strips used.  Basically the strips are sewn end-to-end in a random order, folded in half and sewn from one end to the other up to five times.  Bring your sewing essentials and have some fun.  You may decide to sew individually or as a team and see what you come up with.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2017

Mariner’s Compass.  Danette Roundy will teach the basics of paper piecing a mariner’s compass.  There will be a sign up list at the Oct meeting and supply information to complete this project.

QUILT SHOW NEWS

 The Quilt Show is coming together.  We are still in need of volunteers for a few places.  We can use 8 more volunteers for the Admission table (both days), 6 volunteers(for Saturday) to help Patty Hanscom as white glove hostess, and 6 volunteers to sell tickets for the Opportunity Quilt(both days).  Remember, if you sign up to work, you get in free with your name tag. I will have the sign-up sheets at the meeting on Tuesday (10/10).  If you want to help let me know either by email (pamelaa02@q.com) or call 505-325-6341 and leave me a message.

The last day for Quilt entries is October 1st. No exceptions. Please email your information to Ellen Vandruff .

      Check-ins are Wednesday (10/11) starting at 10:00 AM and going until 6:00 PM.  Please plan on having your quilts there during this time. Bring a sack lunch if you are working.

      We will start hanging quilts on Thursday (10/12) at 9:00 until 2:00.  Lunch will be provided for all helping to hang.

      Just a reminder that we will not break down the show until after 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.  We will let you in through the front doors and you may exit out the back doors.  This is to make the process of checking out quilts easy on everyone.

      For the Scrappy Melody theme, please remember to include the song or story behind your quilt. It will be nice to see everyone’s idea behind their quilts.

          Quilt Show:

         Friday from 10 AM to 7 PM including the Art Walk.

         Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM

         Presentations will be at 4 PM on Saturday.
