Next meeting...
Thursday, October 13, 2022

PROGRAM:  

Michelle Owens will give a program demonstrating a 3-D bow tie block. If you would like to sew along, bring 5 squares of fabric. Any size works but for the demo smaller is better/faster, maybe 4.5" x 4.5". Three squares should be the same color/print, these will be the bow tie, and two squares should be muslin or a light solid, the background. Also bring sewing supplies...needle, thread, pins, scissors. You can make them by hand or on your sewing machine. There will be a handout with instructions.

NOMIMATING COMMITTEE:
Guild members are needed to volunteer for the Nominating Committee.  This committee is required to be made up of both Board members and regular guild members.  We need to find members to fill Board positions for 2023.  Per the Bylaws, the 2023 slate of officers should be presented to the guild at the October meeting, voted in at the November meeting and installed at the December meeting.  Please consider how you can support your guild.

*********************************************
NEW SPECIAL EVENT:  We will host a Sit and Sew at the Trotter Active Adult Center at 3906 Betula Street the day after our meeting each month from 12noon to 4pm for members of the Guild.  There is a large room with tables and chairs and wall outlets all around.  There will be an ironing board and iron available.  You can work on your own projects, charity quilts, hand work or machine work.  It's a great place to put tables together and pin baste larger quilts.  There are many members who are reluctant to come out at night for various reasons.  Our hope is that this will fill a need for people who want the companionship of other quilters in a daytime setting.  Of course, we'd love for you to do both!  
NEXT SIT & SEW:  October 14, 2022

*********************************************
If you have an idea of a project we can do or start in 60 to 90 minutes please contact Keren Rotberg.  With a few exceptions we will skip the "speaker format" so we can do things together. Please join us as we start a new year.

"DOSE OF GOOD" from WFDD on May 24, 2021










































"Quilters love to quilt. We make bed quilts, throws, baby quilts, table runners, wall hangings, placemats and more. We make them for family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. When we’ve made something for everyone we know we make things for people we don’t know. The members of the Piedmont Quilters’ Guild in Greensboro NC have been making and donating quilts since 1980! We recently donated 22 quilts to Freedom House, a substance abuse recovery center for mothers and their children. They were so happy to receive this donation. The quilts will keep the mothers and children warm through the winter. We have already started on more quilts and look forward to donating again soon!"
