October 8th Program- Wendy Hill and Pat Pease
Fat Quarter drawing for October- Monster Mash
It’s the season when I remember the wonderful autumn colors of the
maples and oaks back East, and the smell of apple orchards. Yet I relish the colors in our many
quilt shops here, and these colors are easier to stitch! It’s not too late in the season to take
a look at the class offerings at the quilt shops in the area and it’s not too
early to start thinking about next year’s quilt shows. Our own quilt show will celebrate its
We have a fabulous opportunity to boost our budget with a Barnes and
Noble book fair on Saturday October 13th and the week following. We’re having a mini quilt show there
and need your help in the many roles that are outlined later in the
newsletter. It’s a great time to
shop for those quilt books and holiday gift books.
Please consider that you create and maintain this guild with your
volunteer efforts. Chairing or
sitting on a committee is a fun and rewarding activity and often does not take
much of your time. Even more
important is your effort to support our community connection with quilts that
you make for the organizations so much in need and to share our love of
quilting with the community through our other outreach events.
November is member’s show and tell. Any UFO’s suddenly finished? Do you have anything from a class or
workshop that you’d like to share?
So many folks didn’t have a chance to see your quilts because of the
rain shorted quilt show. What will
Quilts wanted – If you have a challenge quilt from this year’s children’s
book challenge, a novel idea quilt from Rules of Civility or another book
specific quilt, like the Undercover Quilter’s ‘Soul’ quilts, we’d like to
feature some of them at the book fair on October 13th. Please bring them
to the guild meeting on Monday 10/8. We will hang them
on Friday 10/12 and will be hung throughout the store for 1 week.
Important Note about Parking at Partners in Care
Partners in Care (PiC) has asked guild members to not park in the section on the south side of the PiC lot (far left
as you drive in) that are marked with signs designated for Guests to PiC. There are two signs at either end of
the section and they may be hard to see in the dark, so take note of them while
we still have some evening light!
Members who have handicap tags are, of course, still able to park in
the handicap spots which are to the right of the designated guest spots. Guild members who are able are
encouraged to park in the lot just north of PiC. This requires a short walk up an unpaved slope. It is also fine to park on the grass on
the north side of the PiC lot where there are signs designating that area for
overflow parking. If you have any
questions you may contact me or Martha S.
and Shannon P.
Karen K. and Jane G. have volunteered to bring
beverages and Zelma
T., Cindy P., and Laurie T. have volunteered
to bring snacks. If you find you are not able to bring what you volunteered to
contribute, please call Jane D. or Shannon P. The meeting begins at 6:45 pm. As always, please turn your cell phones off before the
Book Fair Fundraiser
We have an opportunity for raising funds for the guild
through a book fair/quilt show at Barnes & Noble Bookstore. The guild will
receive a percentage from each sale made that week (10/13-10/20, 2012) when the
guild is mentioned at the cash register at the store and online with a code (10873388- please share this
with your family, friends and co-workers). More
details will be shared at the October meeting. We would like your help in
making the "quilt guild day" at Barnes & Noble a success.
Help is needed on Friday, October 12th at 4:30 p.m. to hang
quilts around the store and help is needed on Saturday, October 13th for
various areas in the store where we have exhibits, etc. We would appreciate a
two hour shift (10-12, 12-2, 2-4) and need a minimum of
6 members total per shift. Areas to be covered are: Hostess (greet people and
give information about the quilts hanging in the store), Adult Information
(including about our guild, its mission, etc.), Community Quilts area (sharing
a few Community Quilts and information about groups we donate/support through
the guild), and an area where children participate in a hands-on project to
take home and view/"touch" actual quilt pieces.
Please e-mail Martha S. if you are willing to help. Make
note of time/area for volunteering if you have a preference. There will be a
sign-up at the October meeting, but you can choose a slot for helping by
e-mailing me ahead of the meeting time. Our guild could earn a nice financial
boost for this effort. The board has been looking for additional ways to earn
money for the guild and this is one opportunity that will help that mission.
Please consider helping in any way you can. Thank you.

We had a very successful first year for the Boutique. We are beginning preparation for the
Quilt Show 2013 Boutique. Please
put October 23rd on your calendar as a Boutique sewing day. We will have four items ready for demonstration. We need your help! Please contact a committee member with

A BIG THANK YOU to all you lovely ladies who contributed to community
quilts since our last dispersal of quilts!!!!! We recently distributed 97
quilts (yes, the same number as last time - just a coincidence), to the five
charities we donate to. They are always thrilled to get them and it is so
great to hear all of the oohs and ahhhs.
We have many quilt tops that need to be quilted. We package these quilts with the
backing to fit, batting and material for the binding. We would appreciate any help with getting these quilts
finished. If you do not like to do
the binding, we have ladies who will complete that step. These quilts will be available at the
general meetings, on Wednesdays at Community Quilts or contact Diana L, Karen F
or Jane D. Every quilt donated
helps someone in need.
The Touchmark Quilters group has donated three great quilts to the Mt.
Bachelor Guild for community quilts. Marilyn Will, who is a regular at
community quilts day, is a member. Thank you Marilyn and
MBQG has received several thank you notes from the youth at Nativity
Lutheran Church. The students received “Senior Quilts”--quilts that were given
to graduating high school or college seniors. These quilts were made and donated by MBQG members. All the students enjoyed the quilts and
plan to use them on their beds.
The October community quilt day will be on October 10th at Nativity
Lutheran Church from 11 am until 3 pm. Bring your basic sewing
supplies, your lunch, and come enjoy the day with us. You are all
Let’s get together and bring canned tuna or chicken to the October
meeting. If everyone brought one
can, think how much that would help the food pantry. Thank you for all your donations—we accept any food or money

Our last workshop of the year is coming up
and you won't want to miss it! We
need a few more individuals to sign up to make this a go. Learn about color, value, composition,
techniques and more in a special workshop with Wendy Hill and Pat Pease. The workshop will be held on Tuesday,

This is our chance to get a sneak peek of the workshop they will be
presenting in conjunction with the exhibit. All you need to know for this class you learned in
preschool! Play with colors and
textures through a series of challenges with Pat and Wendy. You'll think it's a play day, but there
will be underlying concepts in color, value, composition, techniques and
more. The cost is only $38 which
includes a starter kit and a full day of information and learning - best of
all, there will be no projects you'll need to complete as a result of the

workshops for 2013 - more details coming soon!
Ruth P. is having some health issues and I am sure
she would appreciate a card of support from you.
Janelle R. won Viewer's Choice at the City Walls art
installation. Beautiful job and I
hear she is already working on the next one. We were sad to hear
of the passing of Jill’s husband.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her. A card of support would be nice.

Happy Fall Y’all!! Hard to believe it’s time to get back to work
on those quilting projects already! Put this on your calendar – Sew
Oregon Shop Hop! It runs from Oct 5th through Oct 21st
– so lots of time to do the whole state if you’d like to, there are 43 shops
involved inside 4 districts, but in order to be eligible to win some great
prizes all you have to finish is one district, and our Central Oregon district
is just the eight shops that do our local hop – so, come join us & collect
your 6” finished block from each shop, and enjoy another fun Shop Hop!!
We have lots more reasons for you to think about getting inspired – you
could join in on lots of Halloween project classes with Evelyn, make “A Little
Somethin’ Jacket” with Sue (this you’ll get done probably in class!!) on
Oct. 6th, make an autumn runner with Evelyn on the 11th,
or join Bevalee in learning a little more about machine quilting! Take a
look at our classes on-line at www.bjsquiltbasket.com
or stop by the shop for a schedule.
One more event we hope you will add to your calendar, is to join us in
helping make quilts for Project Linus. Come help provide the love, a sense of
security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or
otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets or quilts,
lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” So join us in becoming a
“Blanketeer” on October 10th from 1-5pm. Cynthia’s will have machines available
to sew with if you don’t want to bring your own. We will have the Project Linus
fabric line available for purchase; some of the proceeds from this purchase go
directly to Project Linus, and we, too, will offer quilt kits for $15.00, upon
completion of your quilt you will get a $10 BJ’s gift certificate.
So, see you soon at BJ’s – it’s the quilting place to be!!
