July meeting reminder

Just a quick reminder that our July meeting will take place on Saturday, July 12 2014 from 10 am to 12 pm at the Stratham Public Library in Stratham, NH. Please note that this meeting will take place on the second Saturday of the month, rather than the first, to avoid the July 4 holiday. 

Amy will be teaching machine-pieced clamshells, and we'll be able to make a pieced pillow top similar to the one shown above. Please bring:
--61 charms (or fabric precut to charm size)
--a piece of batting at least 25" square (we will use this for a design wall and to roll up your wip to bring home)--sewing machine, coordinating thread, pins

We will need one person to volunteer to bring an iron/ironing board. There is no need for rotary cutters/mats (I believe this means we get to try Amy's Sizzix cutter!).

Please also remember that our Michael Miller fabric challenge projects are due. Bring your project and be ready to keep quiet about which one it is! A blind vote will replace show and tell for this meeting, and we will be giving a copy of Playful Little Paper Pieced Projects to our guild's winner.

We'll also be collecting lottery blocks! Please bring $1 per block you make to buy an entry. We're making the same block all summer, Happy Quilting's Star Value Block (16'' size) so you may even have more than one chance to enter. This would be a great one to win! These blocks look fantastic and are very high-impact.

Save all of your regular show and tell projects for August. Hope to see you all soon!
