Beford Mystery Events have begun
February Guild Meeting:
The show must go on....here's Kay with her broken foot leading the first Guild meeting for 2014. Faye brought her own groupies to the meeting. She apparently has a severe addiction and attends Quilters Anonymous! We enjoyed a wonderful and quite touching talk about Faye's quilting journey, her family and the work of Bedford. The 4th and final Bedford Mystery Quilt Fundraiser will be held in the coming months.
Val defined AMQA & AMQF for us and invited us to enter our machine quilts. Lya completed a wonderful quilt to display the Presidents Challenge from the Guild's 25th year - just in time for the 30th year.
Quilt Encounter brochure will be posted next week.
216 attended, a fabulous start to the year.
See the 'Full year Meeting Program' above & start planning for The Roaring 20's next December and your 'Template' creation. If you were unable to attend the December Guild Meeting, Templates will be available from Guild at $4 in the new year.
Fat Quarter Theme - This will be a regular activity each month at Guild in 2014
What is a Fat quarter raffle? Bring along a fat quarter of fabric with the chosen theme. You will give your fat quarter to receive a raffle ticket and depending on the number of entries, there will be 1,2 or maybe even 3 draws, the prize being a bundle of the fat quaters for you to take home.
