May meeting reminder

Our May meeting will be held on Saturday, May 2 from 10 am to 12 pm at the West Newbury Old Town Hall (the same place where we met for the April sew-in).

Here is a list of things to bring for this meeting:

  • Your projects for show and tell! We should have a lot saved up, as we haven't had show and tell since February.
  • Your Modern Traditional Mini for The Gathering! Remember, you WILL NOT see this quilt again until it is hanging in the show. All bindings must be completely finished; all labels and sleeves must be totally attached. Your mini needs a 2'' sleeve; use Jacquie Gering's tutorial  but cut a strip 4.5'' wide x the exact width of your mini.
  • Your Greek Cross blocks for the block lottery! If you have lost your handout, HERE is the tutorial over at Fresh Lemons. You only need to make one block per entry, but they are quick, so you are welcome to make more. You may use any color, prints or solids, but use a white or reads-as-white background. Mary will be giving away one FQ as a prize to a randomly-selected block lottery participant at this meeting.
  • Peg's lime-and-grey Stacked Coins blocks! Please see instructions in Judy's email dated April 10 (if you are searching your email, the subject line is "Blocks for Peg"). These are not due until the June meeting but if they are made, they will be gladly collected.
Each person who submits a Modern Traditional Mini for The Gathering show will receive a raffle ticket--we have three two-spool packages of brightly-colored Aurifil 50wt thread to give away as prizes! A big thanks to Aurifil for donating a thread collection to our guild to use as prizes. Prizes will be given randomly, raffle-style!

Sunday, May 3 will be Sherri Lynn Wood's workshop Bias Strip curves, at the same West Newbury Old Town Hall venue. (NOTE: this workshop was a pre-registered event, and is for registered and paid attendees only.) Lunch will be provided. Please check your email for the supply list. The workshop starts promptly at 9, and you must already be set up and ready to sew by 9, so you need to plan to arrive early. If you will want other snacks or drinks throughout the day, please pack them along with you. If you ordered a book from Amy, please remember to bring $15 cash or check.
