January 9 - Because of the extended holiday our next meeting will be on Monday, January 8th at 10:00 a.m.
Janet Tekell will be with us at the January meeting. Janet was the first
president of our guild. She will share our history and tell us how the
guild got started. After that I will present our agenda for the year. And
introduce the projects we will do. I hope to see all of you there.
February 5 -
HAND QUILTING At our February meeting we will discuss the ins and outs of Hand Quilting. We will go over marking, basting, hoops or frames and quilting. After this we will have a short break for lunch (please bring a sack lunch), and then a hands-on class. If you did not sign up at the January meeting for the class part, please send me a text at 903-654-8974 so I can prepare you a kit. Your kit will contain a 20”x20” little quilt already marked and basted so we can get right to it. You will receive a basting needle, a quilting needle, thread, and a finger cot. You will need to bring a thimble, scissors, and a quilting hoop, no bigger than 14”. If you don’t have a quilting hoop, there will be a few available for you to use during class. Large embroidery hoops will do.
MYSTERY QUILT We will start the Mystery Quilt this month. This is another three color, 6 step quilt. The first month will be the fabric requirements and Step 1. I have chosen red, white, and blue for mine to be used as a Quilt of Valor. If you did not sign up at the January meeting, please send me a text at 903-654- 8974.
QUILTS OF VALOR This year the Executive Board, along with Nancy Kemp, have decided to dedicate all the Quilts of Valor we make to go to the veterans at Westhill Church of Christ. More information will be provided in March at our Community Service Workday. Judy Green, Programs
