Ladies, start your engines! Whoops- I mean Ladies, thread up your needles! Our Quilting Bee has begun! Eight members came together around the frame today to get a good start on our quilt for the Stan Cassidy Foundation. Gail Mitchell pieced the Nines and Vines quilt top and it is now in the frame and we are making very good progress on the borders. In fact we even did our first roll today on one side. Woohoo!
We would love to have you join us around the frame. It doesn't matter whether you are an experienced quilter or not- all are welcome. This is a Guild project and an excellent way to get some hand quilting experience, not to mention build some friendships within the guild. It was especially nice to have one of our newest members join us today- welcome Edith! We're so glad you could join us.
Our original plan was to meet again tomorrow - Friday the 21st - however ole Ma Nature might have something to say about that. We will play it by ear and see what the weather is doing tomorrow. The forecast is not great at the moment, but maybe it won't be too bad till later in the day. If you wish to check with me by phone, give me (Linda) a call after 9 a.m.
The plan for the coming weeks is Tuesdays and Thursdays - any time after 9:30 a.m. Come for an hour or two, or come for the day. You are welcome to bring a lunch - coffee and tea will be provided.
Also, if those of you who work during the day would like some evening quilting time, the invitation is open for Wednesday evenings, any time after 6:30pm.
We have lots of needles, sizes 7, 8, 10 and 12. Do bring your own thimble if you use one.
I will post updates, changes, etc. here so check back to see our progress and schedule. As the weeks go on, we may add different days - so keep checking here.
Won't you join us?
