  • Marie Parish – Hospitality 
  • Jan Hanenberger-Charity 
  • Event/Speaker – Would love someone to step up and help us out with this one!

For the April meeting–4/16/2015:


Get Inspired Challenge reveal:  Get Inspired – find something that inspires you to make something quilty.

Scrap swap extravaganza: Stuff some of you favorite scraps into a one quart plastic bag, add a short note letting your partner know what you like or dislike (this is totally optional) and write your name on the outside of the bag. Everyone participating will draw a bag and make something for the scrap bag owner adding one additional fabric from their stash. The finished project reveal/swap will be at the July meeting.

Also on the agenda is a quick QuiltCon recap from those who went to Austin this year.

Don't forget your March bee blocks if you are in a hive!

If you have an April birthday, please consider bringing something for the snack/food table to share. March Birthdays – Thank you for bringing refreshments to the last meeting!

Come early to socialize, check out the free table and two bit bags! Donations to the two-bit bags gets you four free tickets to enter. Clear out some space in your sewing area and get your less loved items to someone who will make good use of them.

Low volume strip swap

We had our low volume strip swap! Each member brought in as many low volume strips as they wanted, and left with the same number. It was a great way to get a sampling of some new low volume prints.
