Issue 38

February 5th, 2019

Dear Guildies,

Happy February! This is sure to be an exciting month. It's the end of the guild's calendar year, so we will soon be welcoming a (mostly) new board and QuiltCon in Nashville is the 21st - 24th!

This month's meeting will feature membership renewal and sign-up for Michelle Wilkie's April 6th class. Our 2018 Interest Groups wrap up this month so bring your projects from the year to share. Cre-active Club will also be having a Show and Tell for the last couple months of WIP projects.

A new policy: NO food or drinks other than water are allowed in The Sewing Studio Classroom.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the newsletter, please email me. I would also love to hear of any quilty news or ideas for content you'd like to share. Constructive feedback is always welcome.

Happy stitching,

Ashley Gottshalk

Trunk Show at Health Central Park Assisted Living Facility                                                  

Where:  411 N Dillard St, Winter Garden, FL 34787
When:   February 7, 2019  @ 1:00 PM

What do we need?

Assistance with the Trunk Show
If you would like to join us and assist with the show, we will need about 5 people to help with loading and unloading and displaying the quilts.

Quilts to display
If you have a favorite quilt that you would be willing include in the trunk show get it to Marge Cree or Kathy Aber by the February meeting. Please have your name on it with a brief description of why and how you created it. Your name will ensure you get it back. Also, if you have a quilt in the Maitland Library exhibit and would let us include it in the trunk show, please let us know.  We will get it back to you after the trunk show. 

Quilts to donate
If you have made a charity quilt and would like to donate to the residents have that to Marge or Kathy by the February meeting if you haven’t already done so. Depending on how many we receive will dictate how we will distribute. If we have enough for each resident attending, we will give them out. If not, we will hold a raffle to give away.  
If you can assist us with any of these tasks, please let Marge Cree or Kathy Aber know.  You can reach us Marge at jcree@cfl.rr.com or Kathy at kh.aber410@gmail.com
