The Programs Committee has been working on exciting new programming for 2021 with national speakers and workshops coming to us beginning in January. Our November Newsletter will have details about these upcoming events.
December 1- Holiday Program
Join us at our Holiday Program with many of our traditional activities plus fabulous attendance prize drawings throughout the meeting. As we gather on Zoom, dress for the occasion and show off your festive holiday headgear or sweater.
Activities for the morning include Holiday Block Exchange drawing, Toys for Tots gift drive display, UFO winner announcements and showing of quilts made for 2020 Sampler Quilt Challenge! You will not want to miss the awesome prize drawings. Watch Facebook for more information.
Block Exchange for the Holiday Program is a present block. Here is a link to the block instructions ( see pictures of sample blocks and a finished quilt made with red ribbon presents and sashing on this page). Make your Exchange Blocks with any color solid ribbon, bright print wrapping and white/light background fabrics. Exchange Blocks are due by November 22 and can be dropped at regular locations – the homes of Lynn Droege, Lori Ringwelski and Diane Basham along with Prairie Point Quilt Shop and Quilter’s Haven Quilt Shop. We hope to have a lot of blocks so we can have multiple winners!
Friday Schoolhouse Tips and Projects
The Program Committee is also introducing Friday Schoolhouse tips that will be posted on Facebook every 2nd and 4th Friday. We will be posting YouTube videos and member presented tips and projects that we hope will be a source of inspiration. Upcoming Schoolhouse events include tutorials for one hour fabric storage baskets and using leader and ender scraps to create beautiful quilts.
October 9 – Carla Timberlake will be presenting a leader-ender project
November 13 – Linda Foster will be doing curved piecing tips.
