Our Next Guild Meeting is
Monday, January 17th, 2011.
Remember: Our meeting is one week later than usual!
Fat Quarter for January will be yellows and greens…can you guess why??
from the President
I’m so excited to be your new
president. Thank you for your
support. I never expected this when I
came to my first meeting almost 4 years ago. I’ve made many friends and hope to
make even more as you and I work together.
Some of those friends include Marilyn Ulrich and the 2010 board, all of
whom did a terrific job last year. Thank
you very much.
While you won’t be dazzled by a
body of work from me (this body’s been working full time), like many of you, I
have a great collection of fabric that I sometimes hate to cut and have many
boxes labeled ‘work in progress’. Still
I hope to inspire you with new ideas and fun activities. I encourage your participation and creativity
so that we are all constantly energized and awed at the works we create. Bring along a visitor, we’d love to grow and
share our wonderful guild.
This is a big transition year for
the guild as we officially become a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We’ll have additional responsibilities with
that as we continue to serve our community in many ways, new and old.
I’m told that I’m a great
listener. Please feel free to share your
ideas with me and the other board members.
See you at the next meeting!
The meeting begins at 7:00
pm. Unless you are assisting with setup,
please don’t enter the meeting room before 6:30 pm. When you arrive at the meeting, remember to
check-in at the membership table and pick up your door prize ticket if you are
wearing your cloth nametag. As always,
please turn your cell phones off during the meeting.
Wanda B, Cindy M., Cathy N., and Ruth P. have volunteered
to bring refreshments for our January meeting.
If anyone finds
they cannot bring what they volunteered to contribute, please call Rosemary F.
at 388-5407. Thanks ladies.
Please consider filling one of the
positions open for our Guild for 2011.
We are still in need of a Hospitality, member survey committee, and
Raffle Quilt Sales Team. Please contact
Martha S. if interested or be ready to volunteer at our January meeting!
***Audit Committee Members needed
NOW –please call Martha*****
The books added to the library
this month are Photo Fabric Play,
by Krista Camacho Halligan and Hobo Quilts. The January raffle book is A Baker’s Dozen: 13 Quilts from Jelly Rolls,
Layer Cakes, and More! by the staff at “That Patchwork Place”. Tickets
are $1 each/6 for $5. In addition, we will have a selection of books to check
out and you may return any books previously checked out. Thank you for your
support of the Guild Library.
January-Janelle Rebick, our own member,
will present fabric dying. Janelle dyed
fabric last summer for our August quilt show.
It was very attractive and I now own some!
February-Bobbe Schafer will share her love
of aprons with us. Bobbe will present: Aprons: Memories from the Past,
and her patterns may be available. If
you want to view more information, please go to www.bobbeschafer.com.
March-Oregon Quilt Documentation
April-Jean Wells will present a ‘Color’
workshops scheduled for January. We’ll
keep you posted about workshops for 2011!
Happy New Year!
raffle quilt will be debuted at the January Guild meeting. It was shown to the
Board early this month, and, as described by the committee, it’s an art quilt!
It’s beautiful and the Board thinks it will have a unique attraction to all in
Central Oregon and especially to local businesses. The Board decided this would
be a good time to change the raffle ticket price to $5.00 along with limiting
the total number of tickets to be sold to 1,000. Taking these actions also
keeps the Guild consistent with our anticipated 501(c)(3) status. Stay tuned
for more information as the ticket details are worked out.

What’s New at the Stitchin’ Post!
Just in! Jenaveve – the gorgeous and
sophisticated new line of cotton linen by Valori Wells!

is a pattern booklet available for this line, to give you ideas on how to use
this lovely linen. Other new fabrics include Amy Butler’s new line – Soul
Blossoms – which is available in quilting cotton, decorator weight
cotton, and in a laminated fabric as well. Another line by a very popular
designer is Lonni Rossi’s Urban Shades—the

three-session class begins January 13th and is recommended for intermediate knitters.
Have you tried
the European Drinking Chocolate
