UFO due this Saturday

**ADDRESS UPDATE:   Rather than having our meeting at Corn Wagon, we will be meeting at their retreat center instead (still this Saturday, the 10th). Just a few blocks away and the same location for our December meeting.  The address for the retreat center is 385 S 400 E.  It is in the BASEMENT of the Work Med building.

This is the final due date for UFOs.  Check out the UFO page. If it was in the book, you'll find it there. Check out all of our sponsors. They have been generous.  See you Saturday.

A year in the Making

It has been an inspiring year of guild meetings.  Here are just a few highlights.

Sonia Barthlomew (@hobblecreekquilts), a good friend and sometimes member of the guild, taught us the fine art of English Paper Piecing, including the basic quilter's knot and the knicker knot, the importance of a good straw needle (maybe size 11), and the Bottom line thread. 


We had a visit from the owners of Stately type and Maker Valley, Dave and Holly are two of the most delightful people on this planet.  Their story is no less impressive, perhaps even more, than their products.   It's not just quilts and shirts anymore. It's inspiration.   

Our most recent gathering included a lovely trunk show by Kaitlyn from Knots and Threads. Her sweet personality and delightful designs were wonderful.

New Swap: Pillow Covers

Our first swap of 2018 was announced at our January guild meeting: We'll be swapping pillow covers!

It will be a secret swap; you'll be assigned a swap partner and given the answers they provided to the pillow cover swap sign-up.  The person you are assigned will more than likely NOT making a pillow cover for you, this won't be a partner/partner swap.

The two size options for the pillow covers are 12 or 14 inches square, and you will NOT be responsible for providing the pillow insert to your partner--just the pillow cover.

Pillow covers will be due at our April guild meeting.

A sign-up email was sent out to members who are current on their dues, so if you didn't get one, chances are that you haven't paid your dues for 2018!  A PayPal link can be found in the right sidebar of the blog.

The sign-up survey will ask you what your favorite colors are, what particular patterns are catching your eye, and your answers will help us assign you your partner.

The sign-up deadline is February 3rd (this Saturday), so don't procrastinate filling it out!
