Bit of News

Dear Guild Members,

This is a reminder notice that Janey Argyle has reserved her clubhouse for a Spiral Table topper workshop on Sat. July 11, from 10-5 pm. This is the Sat. following our regular Thursday meeting on July 9 (Pot Luck and Auction at this meeting). If you plan to come to the workshop on Sat. please respond to Eve Greco by email or phone so we have an idea how many are attending.

Janey does NOT want to tie up the club house for just a few people. You can work on your own project or charity items if you wish. If you need help stitching your tote bag around the top, I will have my big machine and can help you. The clubhouse is a great place with plenty of space and good light and we will have lots of time for sewing and can make a FOOD RUN if that's what people want to do.

There will be some basic directions for the Spiral table topper in the newsletter but I suggest that you try to pick up a pattern for yourself or to share with your buddy. Don't wait till the last minute because the store might be out of patterns. I have the spiral ruler but you might think of investing in one to share with a friend also. So please get back to me on this, Do Not Wait till the meeting on July 9 as that is too late as far as Janey's reservation is concerned. We will be doing a final count at the meeting, more people are fine, as there is room, we don't want just 3-4 people.

Thanks so much for responding and I'll see you on July 9. Bring finished charity items to the meeting also. Eve Greco

June Show and Tell

Here are the quilts from this month's show and tell. If you click on the image, it should be much larger for examination. Clockwise from top: two baby quilts, an Americana with picot edges, Pink one in which Virginia Olsen "practices on her embroidery machine," black velvet butterfly intricate handwork, Eve Greco's poppy quilt, chenille backed pillow, spicy spiral table-runner.
I couldn't fit that last photo in my collage, but the top one is a "one and you're done."
