UPCOMING EVENTS

“Image from Welsh Quilt Museum, Lampeter, Wales”

February 10, 2020   SERVICE DAY  12- 8 PM

The February 10th guild meeting will be held from 12 noon to 8 pm at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. It will include a pot luck supper.

 

 You may come for all day or a few hours. Bring your machine and basic sewing supplies. The guild has extension cords and power strips, cutting mats, rotary cutters, ironing boards and irons. 

 

The Service Committee has assembled many pre-cut quilt kits with full instructions for members to complete. In many cases, the blocks are already cut and pieced so your work can focus on sashing and borders. It’s all designed so that we can make as many quilts as possible in a short amount of time. We will also have burp cloths to be stitched. If you don’t want to bring your sewing machine, we’ll have opportunities to contribute in other ways. There will be quilts that need the binding hand stitched, so bring a needle for that (the thread will be provided). You could also iron completed tops or arrange the tops, batting, and backing fabrics into quilt sandwiches. We will definitely have something for you to do!!

 

Bring your own lunch if you haven’t already eaten before you come. Everyone is also encouraged to bring snacks to share as the day goes on.

 

Since we will be staying through the evening meal, we’ll be organizing a soup and salad supper. We had a sign-up sheet at the January meeting to volunteer to bring specific items. If you still need to sign up, contact Vicki or Pam for suggestions. The Program Committee wisely put the leftover cookies from our December meeting in the freezer, so we’ll have plenty of those on hand for snacking and dessert.

 

Any questions, contact: Nancy Granner (about the sewing activities) ngranner@mchsi.com Pam Ehrhardt or Vicki Walch (about the food) pje281@gmail.com or vwalch@gmail.com

There is no regular guild meeting that evening.

 

Every year the Old Capitol Quilters Guild donates hundreds of quilts and other items to members of our community. We hope you will join us on Monday, February 10, to be a part of this worthwhile project.
