November Program

Our November Guild meeting will feature 4 Guild members sharing tips and teachable techniques.  Rather than sitting through a lecture/program, you will visit each of 4 “technique stations”.  It will be informative, fun and very interesting.  You may wish you’d known about these techniques years ago!

Twy Hoch will show “ Hiding the Knots”, Ruth Hutmacher will teach us her favorite “Hand Appliqué”, Jane Szabo will explain, “Reducing the Bulk” and Dolores Thomas will demonstrate “Bling”. Come and learn from our own members.

Jane Szabo and Janet DeSau



2020 Quilt Show

Quilt Show Co-Chair Needed.  The 2020 show will be a much better show if the position is shared.  We want this show to be spectacular!!

Also, guild members will have the opportunity to sign up for 2020 Quilt Show committees at the guild meeting.  If you cannot make it to the meeting but already know what committee you want to be part of, please call Darcy de la Rosa @ 541 270-5234.



Community Quilters

If any of you have some extra time, our committee could use some “cases” that are about 12″ square made from any material, that we can fill to make sit-upon pillows for young children in after-school programs.  Our agencies especially like these to come with a cotton pillow case so they can wash the case and reuse them when they become soiled.  They don’t have to match, except in size.

As always it seems, we also need regular pillow cases, especially in gender neutral and male fabrics and themes.  I am delivering these as fast as they come in right now.

I am looking for a volunteer to work with the Newport School District Nurse to provide quilts for kids who get sick at school and end up in the nurse’s office.  They would be offered a quilt to wrap up in until they are released to go home.  Your job would be to ascertain how many quilts are needed, and then deliver the quilts (I will get them to you).  You would remain the “contact” person for the district if they need more quilts going forward.

Be sure to mark your calendar for 1st Thursday, November 7!  We’ll be sending out a reminder early next week.
