Hi Everyone!

This month went fast. Can you believe its time for our February Guild meeting?
Here are a few things to think about, get ready for and to do.
• This month is ❤️LOVE OFFERING❤️ month. Please look for the three (3) RED jars. One for each of these Guild sponsored charities, Allegiance Hospice Quilts, Cage Comforters and Quilts For Kids.” Thank you in advance for your thoughtful and welcome donations.
• Our program this month will be an interactive one. It is called, “Teaching
Others.” We will be changing stations every 15 minutes. We will observe five (5) different demonstrations presented by five (5) of our talented Guild members. This will be SO fun. You don’t want to miss this.
No February workshop.
• March Program: Our program will be presented by Cathey Newhouse and Becky Kopicko. Their program is titled, “Flowers in Quilts.” This will give us all a taste of spring and ideas about our own flower gardens, inside and out.
• March Workshop: Cathey Newhouse
will be instructing us on, “Thread Painting Flowers.” There is room for you and a friend to sign up. Look for the sign up sheets in the lobby.
• School Bell Quilt In: The bell will be ringing at 9:00am on Saturday, March 17th for roll call. More information will be given at the meeting about the fun that is planned. Sign up sheets will be available at the meeting.
• The Challenge and The Quilt Show!
Talk about fun!! More about these at the meeting too!
Frienship takes on many mantles. February is LOVE month. Let’s make it frienship month too, supporting our friends, our fellow Guild members. So, here is one way...
Anyone who is a Guild member, and has a quilt related business or works for a quilt related business, please bring a flyer or business card—or both—to the meeting. Please place them on the lobby table for advertising. Bring a few extra so members can take one for future reference. A quilt related business is a business that you receive payment for services rendered, wether it’s hand work or machine work, selling fabric and/or products. Our Guild has a wonderful newsletter to place your advertisement in too.
February Greeters: The Executive Board
February Holders and Folders: Lois Darling, Susan Smith and Cheryl Watson.
See you all at Ella Sharp.
