October (And Other Upcoming Events!) Meeting Reminder

Are you ready for the Anna Maria Horner workshop signups tomorrow? Workshop descriptions can be found at http://cambridgemodernquiltguild.blogspot.com/p/meetings.html, and the PayPal button will be available there at 10am Wednesday Sept 20th as well. Please contact Laura if you have any questions or concerns regarding signing up.

October 7th is the NH Fall Festival at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth. If you have a quilt to display, please get these to Diane, or the East Kingston Library, by Monday 9/25. If you are available to volunteer to hang out with our quilts for a few hours on the 7th, please sign up here for a time slot! We are looking for 3 people to help set up and take down the display on Friday and Saturday nights, and at least two people during the day of the festival.

On October 14th we will have our October meeting at the Kingston library. We are going to have a busy meeting! 
- The Crayon Box Challenge is due. We will be sharing our projects and voting for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes! 
-We will be drawing names for our end of year gift exchange. This year we will be making a boxy bag from the Kelby Sews tutorial, and filling this with $10 worth of goodies for our partners.
If you are interested in participating but will not be able to attend, please email Kali (or send a friend to the meeting) with the following information:
     What is your favorite type of quilting fabric? (Ex novelty, low volume, geometric, blender, floral, etc.)
     What is your favorite color?
     Who is your favorite fabric designer or pattern designer?
     What is one notion or quilting item that you would love to add to your stash?
-Nominations for 2018 SMQG Offices. We will be accepting nominations for all offices, and currently have no one running for vice president or secretary.  Please speak with any of our current officers if you have any questions.

The Festival of Trees is happening at the Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth, NH from November 17th-19th. We are making ornaments that are less than 6 inches to decorate our tree. We will need a few volunteers for this, and will be sending out a signup in the next few weeks.
