Shop 'Til You Drop!

Monday, November 14th - 7pm

At our November meeting we sure will be busy! We will have our Challenge Quilt and also have our 2nd Giant Fabric and Quilt Book Sale!  This is a great way for members to sell their “why did I buy that?” items or fabrics and books and quilt related tools that maybe they find they just don’t use as often as they had planned. We all can take advantage of some great bargains!  All members are welcome to sign up for a table. Sue Levin, Mary Grzybowski, Sue Edelman, Anne Cowan, Grace Smith, Lauren Dougherty, Joyce Hughes, Peggy Beerer and Mary Molettiere have all signed up for a table.  In addition we will have a table marked “Guild” in case you only have a few items and just wish the Guild to make the profits on those items.  (Please label the items for the Guild Table the same - with some information – example “3 yards for $5”)

If you plan on selling items at your own table, you will need to label (masking tape works fine) each item with your name and price and information (yardage, etc) and arrive no later than 6:30 so you can set up your table. If you plan on purchasing anything, please bring CASH – singles and fives really are best and make it a lot easier on the gals collecting.  We have Joan Logan, Carol Breinig, Lynn Holtzman, Lynne Tomiinson and Robin Abraham ready to add up your sales.  Also remember to bring your guild tote bag to take home all your goodies!

If you are entering a Challenge Quilt, please drop that off first with Gina!!

RAFFLE TICKETS

If you have not picked up your raffle tickets, you can do so at the November meeting.  If you miss this meeting, the tickets can be mailed to you or another member can drop them off at your house.  We really need full cooperation with the raffle ticket sales!  Every member needs to sell all their tickets! The monies raised from the ticket sales go to funding all the terrific speakers and all the fun events planned for you through the year!  Most of the guild members buy the tickets themselves and it is much appreciated!

DECEMBER MEETING PREVIEW

We have 3 wonderful demos lined up for our holiday meeting in December Demos:

Donna Steck will be doing a Demo that she and several of her quilt buddies taught themselves from an article in Fons and Porter called "Coiled Fabric Bowls". She also has a book entitled "It's a Wrap" which shows the same technique. This technique can be used to make fabric bowls, purses and baskets. She made a basket and will bring it as a sample. Donna says, it's also great way to use scraps, as long as you can sew them together to create 1 inch strips.

Joyce Hughes will be doing a demo on “Thread Painting an Art Quilt”, showing how the different threads create different effects. Many of us have seen Joyce’s award winning quilts and even some of us have taken a class from Joyce.  Come see her Demo her unique and interesting techniques.

Robin Abraham is doing a demo on kaleidoscope quilts but different than the one that Grace Katz showed us. This demo will be on the Ricky Tims' version of a kaleidoscope quilt!

HOLIDAY QUILT GIFT EXCHANGE

Remember to bring a wrapped quilt-related NEW gift for our holiday exchange valued $8-10.  Mary Molettiere has a fun way planned to share our gifts with each other and it is different than last year’s storybook reading.  Mary has this plan all “buttoned” up and ready to explain to you!  You are in for a fun night from beginning to end!
