Finishing School will be meeting on April 25 from 10-4 at the Carriage House at the Lincoln County Historical Museum at 545 SW 9th St, Newport. It is a great time to work on a project without being interrupted. You may bring your machine or hand work we will have an iron there for you to use. You may come at any time and stay as long as you like. Bring a sack lunch or go out what ever you would rather do. It is also a great way to get to know other guild members and get help on a project that you need advice on. Fun time is had by all.
We know not everyone wants their information on the password protected area of the website so there will be an announcement at the membership meeting informing the membership of the intended plan to post the directory on the website. Members can request to not be included or request no street address or no birthday listed in the online directory. Contact Gail Chipman or Cheryl Kramer at the Membership Table at the general meeting. Also, you can let Ruth Johnson know your preference at: 541 590-3783 or via email: email@example.com
Registration is open online for the quilt show. We’ve only had a hand full of quilts registered so far, so please begin signing up the quilts you plan to show.
Small Quilts for Silent Auction
Just a reminder that we need lots of small quilts for the Silent Auction at our show. These little quilts can be any size from 12” to a maximum of 18” and can be any technique or pattern that you find appealing. Half of the funds raised will go to a selected charity, and the other half to our guild. Please have them ready by the June meeting so that we can display them at the Newport Library in July. The public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite quilt, and the maker of the winning quilt gets to choose a charity that will receive $50. Please remember to include a label on the back of your quilt, and a “Buy it Now” price, as well as your suggested opening bid.
Many thanks to all of you.
