NOVEMBER MEETING HIGHLIGHTS

We played a “getting to know your quilters” game!
Everyone had a sheet of questions, and chatted with fellow members to find the answers. It looks like everyone had a good time, finding their answers!

Community Quilts

These quilts will put a smile on some faces.
Thanks for everyone who helped make quilts, assisted at the sewing day, or picked up a quilt kit to finish.

The Postcard Group shared many interesting seasonal cards! There were lots of donated items for our boutique
at Quilts Kingston 2018 Our Block of the Month program is planning a sew day this month, and some completed blocks and projects were shared.

With our upcoming quilt show, we had a demonstration on how to add a hanging sleeve to your quilt.

FIDGIT QUILT WORKSHOP

Our guild’s latest Fidgit Quilt workshop was held at the Odessa fairgrounds.
The goal is to make “Fidgit Quilts” for Alzheimers’ patients.
They are small quilts, with many different textured fabric, and can include trims, zippers, etc.

Holly has been leading the members at workshops.
It looks like everyone had a productive day!
