Lots of Events Coming Up Mark Your Calendars
Finishing School will be meeting on June 22 from 10 to 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 many bring your machine or hand work we will have an iron there for you to use. You many 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.
FFO or Finally Finished Object (quilt) July 13, 5:30
Our program for the July meeting will be Finally Finished Quilts. We need a few more quilts to show and tell your story of why it took so long to finish. There will be 5 prizes for Best Story, Oldest Quilt, Judges Choice, Best Excuse, and To Be Determined.
Please email or call Jane to get on the list.
These quilts can be entered in the Quilt Show, DEADLINE- July 4. We still need more quilts, up to 132 now.
P.S. – Please think about volunteering for the Program/Workshop for next year, my term is almost done.
Beginning Machine Quilting is the Sept. workshop given by Jean Amundson. Learn how to use a number of marking tools and methods for machine quilting on your home machine. Also learn the actual techniques for walking foot and free motion quilting. You must have a sewing machine with feed dog drop capability, a walking foot, and a darning/embroidery free motion foot. (Check out your sewing feet box that isn’t opened much.)
September 16, 9-4 at Atonement Fellowship Hall and only $40. Want to have the workshop for free, sign up to be the hostess. Email Jane for more info, no lifting required, except your machine.
Sign up at the next meeting or email or call Jane.
APRIL RETREAT – PLAN NOW!
It’s a little early to pack your projects and PJ’s but not too early to start planning your retreat getaway! Retreat is scheduled for APRIL 23-26, 2024 at Aldersgate Camp & Retreat in Turner, OR. It will be here before we know it!
Your committee is working on retreat rates (which we guarantee will be less than last year for all options and 3 meals a day!). We are hoping for help from those of you who plan to attend and know which option you might be interested in. There will be 14 RV spaces with full hook up, meals included, which has never been offered before and will be at a considerable savings. We are hoping to hear from you regarding the option you are leaning toward; RV, single, double, triple or quad. (Don’ forget to include you roommates in this information, if you know them at this time.)
We hope to use the information regarding your choices to assist us in arriving at the 2024 retreat rates by July 13th (our next guild meeting). Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Please call, text or email Gail Chipman at your earliest convenience! Thank you very much! See contact information below:
