New Gadgets

 We all love new gadgets - like these Pinmoors that Jackie found...
So how to use them - well essentially it is a different way to pin your quilt before quilting. Checkout the Pinmoor website to find out more. Kinda cool....

If you find just the bestest, newest product let us know - we would be happy to post about it!

September 2011 Meetings

Guild activities started last week with our first meeting on Tuesday and the next day a machine quilting workshop hosted by Kathy Mallory using the Patsy Thompson tapes in the guild library.   One more class will be held next Wednesday, September 28.  

It was a big group at the first meeting of the guild year.  Lots of gorgeous show and tell and I have finally uploaded the pictures to Flickr and put up a slide show.  Sounds like we will have some great programs and hopefully the members will take advantage of the opportunities to take some fun classes that are being offered.  It also is a way to really get to know other guild members.  The meetings are always busy and hard to really get acquainted when you are there.  Working on committees for the quilt show is another good way to get to know others.  And, also, Sit and Sew if you don't work.  Good fun with a good bunch of gals. 

Enjoy the slide show.

Sit and Sew

I had a call fromNancy Stanley this afternoon in regard to our Sit and Sew that is held at the Chapel Lane church on the third Tuesday from 10 to 3:00.  Nancy had announced at our meeting this past Tuesday evening that we were unable to get the room on this coming Tuesday and would therefore be having our meeting on the fourth Tuesday this month.  That was an error and Sit and Sew will be held next Tuesday, September 20th.  Spread the word that it will be the normal day and not the following week.

I took lots of pictures at Show and Tell but have not put them on my computer yet - will try and get a slide show up this weekend.  I have taken pictures since the blog was put up and am wondering if anyone else would like to do that, put them on a disc and give them to me to be put up for the other guild members to see.  This is something I just did on my own but would welcome someone else snapping some shots of the lovely things we all make.  Leave a comment if you might consider it.  Thanks much!
