October meeting reminder

Our October meeting will be held on Saturday, October 3 from 10 am to 12 pm at the West Newbury Old Town Hall--different from the West Newbury Annex where we met in September. The address is 491 Main Street, West Newbury, MA 01985; it is the historical white building where we held the Sherri Lynn Wood workshop. Parking is in the rear of the building.

Leave yourself time to pack for this meeting! Please plan to bring:

--quilts that are accepted into the A Quilter's Gathering Show, with 4'' hanging sleeves attached. The tutorial for the hanging sleeve is HERE. This is the last time you will see your quilt until it is hanging in the show, so make sure it is show-ready! Acceptance emails have not yet been sent. If you submitted a quilt, please check your email on Saturday 9/26 to find out if it was accepted for the show. 

--your lottery blocks: Mary chose a fun and seasonal block, spooky eyeballs! Find the tutorial HERE.

--any quilted work you would like to share for show and tell

--your nominations for officer roles! Many of our current officers are in need of a sabbatical, so there are many roles to be filled. Please consider nominating yourself for one of these positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary. If you'd like the inside scoop on any of these jobs, Laura, Judy, Jess, or Peg would be happy to let you know what the job entails.

--your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies (scissors, thread snips, neutral piecing thread, whatever foot you like for piecing) for a fun charity sew-in! We'll be putting together some wheelchair comfort quilts using the Jelly Roll Race. I'm promised that the quilt tops will take less than an see what you're in for, you can watch THIS YouTube video. We will need volunteers to quilt and bind the finished quilt tops. The guild has purchased jelly rolls, so there is no need to bring fabric!

--any fabric you are ready to get rid of (but not make money off of) for the free fabric table!

Whew! That's a lot planned. I won't actually be at the meeting--I will be on vacation with my family. Have a ton of fun jelly roll racing!
