Fat Quarter drawing for September- Pastel
Happy September!! As someone
who has started school in August or September for the past 34-35 years, I
always look forward to the school supply aisles at the local big box
stores. I LOVE school supplies! I tend to collect them like I do
fabric. I've gotten better at limiting my purchases for school, but not so much
with fabric. So as this school year rolls around, go to the local shops and see
what's new, buy a new book, try a new pattern you never thought you would, sign
up for a class, learn a new technique. Pretend school is starting for you too.
Get the fever! Learn a new skill, then come show us your talent at guild Show
Since I'm a school employee, my years tend to run from September to May rather
than from January to December.
So, have a great start to the "year"!!
for the September 9th Guild Meeting
and Lindsey K.
Jan S. and Mary Ann L. have volunteered to bring beverages and Corni Q., Kim M. and Kris L. have volunteered to bring snacks. If you find
you are not able to bring what you volunteered to contribute, please call Erin
B. or Lindsey K. The meeting
begins at 6:45 pm. As always,
please turn your cell phones off before the meeting.
Guild Job Opportunities
It is time to start thinking about upcoming guild jobs that will need
filling in the next few months.
Please consider how you can give your time and talents to the guild. Some jobs are short and sweet, some
require a year’s commitment, but all are a wonderful way to get to know more
guild members and have a lot of fun!
We especially welcome newcomers to the guild to consider filling
positions. There’s no better way
to meet folks than diving right in!
If you are interested in any of these positions you can contact Kristin
S. or Shannon P.
Here are just some of the possibilities:
Newsletter Editor- I will be transitioning to
the position of webmaster and creating a new website for the guild. This is a huge job and I would love to
train a new newsletter editor soon so that the transition will be smooth and
give me more time for website development. The new editor should be able to start training in October
and the job will continue through 2014.
A working knowledge of Microsoft Word is important for this
position. Please contact Kristin
S. for more information.
Christmas Party Committee
Programs Coordinator (1st Vice President)
2013 30th Anniversary MBQG Quilt Show
THANK YOU to everyone who
helped in any way to make our 30th Anniversary Quilt Show a
success! Although we had to shut
down a bit early again this year, we had many quilt admirers and shoppers while
we were all set up. It was
especially wonderful to see the “history table” for visitors to share and a
beautiful display of quilts. Many
commented on the variety of quilts that were displayed individually and from
many special groups.
It was an honor to help the
guild celebrate 30 years with the 2013 Quilt Show in the Park! We are all set for 2014 on Saturday,
August 16th---wouldn’t you just love to be the Quilt Show
sure Shannon would love to hear from one or two of you that would be willing to
help the guild in this way, and I would be happy to help you get started in the
Marie J., Darlene P., Jane G., Karen K., or Mary Ann B.
The grand total of sales for 2013 was
$830.00. This included all
handmade items and the beautiful doll clothes. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 2013
Boutique. We could not have done
it without your great work.
We will bring the unsold items to the September
Guild meeting. We have unsold items
that could be ‘great stocking stuffers’ for your family and friends. Please bring some cash for Christmas
and/or birthday presents.
The committee wants to thank everyone who helped
with the Boutique during the past two years. Committee members: Lora F., Darlene P., Jane G., Karen
K., Marie J., and Mary Ann B.
Raffle Quilt Winner
Mary Ann B.
Julianne Loving was the winner of our beautiful raffle quilt. On the day of the Quilt Show, she
became a new member of the Guild.
Julianne purchased and won with the last ticket sold. What a coincidence!
The total sales for the quilt were $2,087.00. Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets.
A big thank you to all who sold tickets during Shop Hop, Quilt Week,
and the Mountain Meadows Quilt Show. You were a big help! Thank you, also, to Marie J. who donated a canopy to provide
shade during the warm days of summer.
Food Drive- September 9th Guild Meeting
Please bring any canned food for
September’s donation to the Food Pantry. We donate to Nativity Lutheran Church
where we also do our weekly Community Quilting. They can buy items for the Food Pantry through the food bank
or locally at a much lower price than discount stores or supermarkets. Any monetary donations go much further
for the Food Pantry, but they appreciate and use all donations. Thank you for the support.
Quilts- Next Meeting September 11, 11-3 at Nativity Lutheran Church
Diana L., Bev P., Lora F., or Jean M.
On August 22nd, we distributed 92 quilts to five agencies
(Cascade Youth, Saving Grace, Ronald McDonald, Partners in Care, and The Kids
Center). As usual, we were greeted
with excitement and many thanks. For
those of you making community quilts, we could use some more quilts for little
boys in the future. Somehow we
usually end up with more "girl" quilts, so we'd like you to think
about smaller guys as well. We are
also starting to save up some baby quilts for the Bend Sr High Teen Parent
Program, so baby quilts are welcome.
As you may know, we give quilts to this program once a year, in
conjunction with their December holiday party.
COMING UP: Wednesday, September
11th--We are having a crazy stripping party!
Several of us have saved up a whole lot of strips and we are planning a fun day
of using them up--with your help. If you can come, we meet as usual at
Nativity Lutheran Church (corner of SE Knott and Brosterhaus), from 11-3.
Bring your lunch and sewing machine and supplies. You will be
able to either work on a quilt by yourself, or work with others as a team.
We will have patterns, or you can bring your own. If you
have fabric strips you want to use up, bring them, too! Community quilts
is a great way to get to know other Guild members. Please come if you're interested.

Jill will be teaching undulating flying geese techniques that she

cute! High Street will make an appearance as well, with its beautiful florals
and sophisticated medallions. Get a jump on holiday projects with Midwinter

Wow – what happened to summer??! Well, since it is fall; it’s
time to get behind that sewing machine again, and get to work on those
Christmas projects – yes I said the “C” word!! We have some great
classes scheduled to get you started or “re-inspired”; we will start with Norma
and some safe but fun “Rock Climbing” on the 14th & 15th
(which is actually appliqué in disguise!) She will also be teaching her Animal
Art Appliqué again on the 21st, so if you’ve missed this one a time
or two in the past, sign up today before it fills again! She teaches you
any one of Toni Whitney’s patterns; Check them out at Toni’s website (www.toniwhitney.com) or search her older,
but fabulous, designs on Big Fork Bay’s website (http://www.bigforkbaycottonco.com).
We are happy to order any of them in a pattern only or packaged kit!
Also, our Lumberyard gal, Patty Bowers, is now here in Central Oregon
permanently – yeah!! You will need to start with the Trunk Show to get
going on her scrap management program, put that on your calendar for Saturday,
Sept 28th, 2pm – 4pm, this is the first of many classes she will
teach for us. There are “Construction Zone” classes and “Tricks with Tools”
classes coming later this fall. You can also join Patty to learn how to use up
those scraps on the Vortex Pillow on the 19th, which doesn’t require
the trunk show. Watch your emails for news of our Labor Day Sale,
Saturday, August 31st – Monday, September, 2nd it
will be a fun one!
Hope to see you soon at BJ’s – it’s the quilting place to be!!
