The guild is once again participating in the YMCA Childrens Gift Program. You may choose a child’s name at the October guild meeting. Gift suggestions will be available with each name. Anything you give will be appreciated. Please bring your wrapped present, with attached sticker, to the November guild meeting. Thank you. For more information, contact Cathy Carpentier at 508-765-5033 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested taking a workshop?
Then, please visit the Workshop page. Several guild members who are skilled and experienced in quilting are presenting some great workshops so that you too can expand your quilting skills with like-minded quilters.
Interested in who will be speaking at the next guild meeting?
Then, please visit the Speakers page. Anne Pietroburgo has arranged for a great speaker program this year. Each will inspire us to try something new.
How about a Challenge or two or three?
The Whisper Challenge is back!
Make a wallhanging inspired by the creation of the previous month’s quilter. The first quilter will start by selecting an image from an array of photos provided and making a wallhanging inspired by that photo. His or her creation will go to the next quilter who will make a wallhanging inspired by that creation. And so on and so on and sew on. See Becki Leavitt if you are interested. The BIG Reveal date tbd.
Architectural Inspiration Challenge
Make a quilt inspired by a photo provided to you. This challenge is NOT about an exact replica of the image….Let the picture inspire you to be creative through its colors, patterns, line or theme. At the April meeting, we will have the BIG Reveal. See Monique Fontaine if you are interested.
Holice Turnbow Panel Challenge
Holice will be distributing mystery panels (the same panel for each person) and the challenge is to create a quilt that results in the original panel being unrecognizable. More info at the October meeting and in the newsletter!
Quilters Winter Brunch
Anne Covino, with help from Monique Fontaine, is once again coordinating our very popular Quilters Brunch. The tentative date is Sunday, January 24th, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Leicester Country Club, 1430 Main Street in Leicester, MA. Sign-ups will begin at the October meeting and the cost will be $22.00 per person. After surviving the holiday season, the Quilter’s Brunch is a welcome respite for all!
Cathy Starr is once again coordinating a mystery quilt. Every few weeks, you will receive a clue in the mail. As you complete each clue, you will see your quilt grow in pieces until sometime in the spring when the whole quilt will be revealed. The cost is $10 and the clues are mailed to you. If you are interested, please email Cathy Starr at email@example.com.
