THURSDAY SEW DAYS
We have also expanded the Thursday Handwork Group into our Zoom offerings.
Every Thursday, we host a Zoom Sew Day for members only. Join in to work on your current WIP - doesn't need to be handwork - or just pop in to chat and catch up with everyone.
We start at 10:00 a.m. and go until about 4:00 p.m. EVERY THURSDAY.
Well, of course workshops are looking different with Covid too! Here's what we've been doing instead:
Bearadise Block of The Month
Someone in the guild came across this project and suggested we get together to work on it. So we set it up.
On the first Monday of each month we have a Bearadise sew day from 10:00 am to "whenever". Usually we go till about 4:00-ish.
Go to Suzy's website here to get the pattern and details about the project. If you're late to sign up, you can purchase the pattern.
P.S. you don't HAVE to work on Bearadise during a Bearadise Sew Day...but you DO have to be a member!
If you are interested in learning a new technique or a specific project, get in touch with the Program Coordinator. Your idea may be considered for an upcoming workshop.
Members and visitors have the opportunity to stay in touch and share photos of their projects in the PUBLIC Facebook group.
Due to Covid we did not host our usual annual retreat for 2021. Stay tuned for the details on our next retreat.
Instead, we are hosting Zoom Sew Days every second Saturday until further notice.
Sew Days begin at 9:00 am and you must be a member to join.
Fiber Fly meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month on Zoom 1:30 pm. Discuss fiber art projects, challenge each other, encourage each other. Open to members and non-members!
Handwork Group meets on Thursdays at 10:00 am by Zoom. We extended the timeframe and opened up the options so members can work on handwork projects or quilts.
Bring your projects and beverage, have a visit and share ideas. Guild members will receive the Zoom link.
Dye Group is currently not meeting. Contact Lorna Themelis for information. Open to members only.
GO Group is currently not meeting. If you have a GO cutter, bring it. If you don't own a GO cutter but you're interested in learning about them, come anyway. Contact Marianne Ashby for details. Open to members only.
NOT A MEMBER YET?
Volunteer within the guild - it's a great way to get to know people, be part of shaping our Guild's future, and learn about quilting.
Quilt Shows are scheduled every second year. All members contribute in some way towards a successful quilt show. Whether it's displaying your work, volunteering during the show, or volunteering with the hundreds of details that come together before the show, it all helps. Please contact the Executive to let them know how you can help.
Our Guild needs you! Members, consider putting your name forward for a position. Most positions require only a small amount of your time but the rewards for everyone are big. Elections are held at the May meeting.
