Sept 26 - Open Sew
Oct 17 - Library Ornament Sewing Day
Nov 7 - Strips and Curves Workshop
Jan will let us know the details for the Strips and Curves Workshop
There are no longer tables in the room we use for sewing Saturday's.
Please consider bringing a folding table to use. At the last Sewing Saturday we used the tables in the room across the hall as well as the desk in the room. I do suggest people try to do the bulk of their cutting out for projects at home.
Deb is looking for a new location for Sewing Saturdays
Guild board member elections are coming up very soon. Please consider running for a position. It does not have to take a lot of time to do. If you would like to volunteer, please do so, especially for President. Deb has been doing it for several years and would like to step down if someone will step up. It truly doesn’t take that much time to write the agenda, make sure the demos are all squared away, and run the meetings. She has also been the library liaison and can continue to do so if need be.
Other board position are Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.

Bags of fabric were distributed for our guild challenge. The fabrics were grouped into categories and then we drew for bags. This is going to be a fun challenge. It's not too late to participate we did have some bags left.
- to use as much of the fabric as possible
- keep in mind the dimensions for charity quilts (45x45"is and 45X60"is)
- quilts are due at the December Meeting
- you are welcome to make more than one and or/to sandwich and complete the quilt.
