MARK YOUR CALENDARS:

TUESDAY, AUGUST 8, 2017

 UFO Projects. Quilters bring your unfinished projects and get inspired in getting them done after meeting activities. If not a UFO, there are community service projects to work on or completing art quilts for the September showing at Artifacts Gallery. Enjoy this time to inspire one another and lend a hand where possible. Don’t forget your sewing essentials.

OUR MEETING FOR THIS MONTH IS AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH LOCATED AT 865 N. DUSTIN, FARMINGTON. 

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Quilt Show Projects. One month left to finalize quilt entries. This month’s program gives quilters an opportunity to work on bindings, casings for hanging your quilt, those last few seams or whatever it takes to get that quilt done. Have a question? We’ll have Q&A and take this opportunity to receive feed back from our own guild members.

QUILT SHOW NEWS

 The theme for the 2017 San Juan Quilter’s Guild is “Scrappy Melody.”  It is to be held Friday and Saturday, October 13 and 14, 2017 at the Civic Center. We will not be having vendors this year due to limited space for  them.(Civic Center will be under remodeling at this time.) 

            The Challenge Quilt will be 1 UFO with the story behind that quilt. We are only going to allow 1 UFO per person.

            We are still in need of items for the Silent /Mini Quilt Auction.  Please see Bev Spelling to give her the items.

            I am looking forward to a great Quilt Show in October.

QUILT SHOW CATEGORIES:

Category 100—360 inches or larger

Category 200—359 inches or smaller

Category 300—Children’s Quilts

Category 400— Holiday/Seasonal Quilts

Category 500—Other than a quilt

Category 600—Theme Quilt. Based on the theme, “Scrappy Melody.”

Category 700—Challenge Quilt or UFO. Limited to 1 quilt with the story behind the quilt.

Category 800—Auxiliary Quilts

Category 900—Mini Quilts

Category 1000—Art Quilts

Art Quilts are more an idea or concept than a traditional pattern.  Different textiles, color, textures and/or a diversity of mixed media will be used in an “Art Quilt”.  The theme of art quilts are generally based on the quilter’s experiences, imagery, and ideas using both modern and traditional quilting techniques to create art objects.

ARTIFACTS GALLERY SHOW

 Don’t forget to turn in your mini quilts/wall hangings for the Artifacts Gallery Show.  I need them at the August meeting. If you miss the date, you will have to arrange to get them tome by August 23rd at the latest. Please have an idea what price you are asking for them. I will also be calling to remind everyone.  Thank you all for sharing your wonderful work with the community.
