Play Quilt-O, Enjoy  Show & Tell in August

The August 14 guild meeting is designed as a fun evening, playing a little Quilt-O and sharing all the work of our members in an expanded Show & Tell. You are encouraged to bring your latest projects (finished or in-progress) to share with the group.

To play Quilt-O, bring a dollar for the Quilt-O card (or $2 for 2 cards or more if you wish). Each time we play a round it will “cost” one fat quarter for each board. The first player with "Quilt-O" gets the fat quarters for that round. If there is more than one winner, the fat quarters will be split. We will play up to four rounds and have ample time for Show & Tell as our primary purpose. Cake, lemonade, coffee and tea will be available for all.

September Guild Meeting: Kimberly Einmo

Our September 11 meeting will be a fantastic presentation by the internationally known quilter, Kimberly Einmo. She will also present a workshop on Wednesday at the Xenia Community Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Because of a great demand for spaces in her workshop we scheduled a second workshop on Thursday at the Knob Prairie United Church of Christ in Enon. Check the sign-up list at the August meeting to see which day you are signed up for.

If you signed up early you will most likely be on Wednesday. If you signed up later and were on the waiting list, you will be in the Thursday workshop. HOWEVER, although we have lots of people signed up for these workshops, very few have paid. REMEMBER, we need to have the workshop fees paid at the August meeting or mailed to me by September 1 at:

Karen Sipos MVQG 7232McKenna Place Englewood, Ohio 45322

If anyone is not paid when the September guild meeting begins, that place will be considered open and anyone wishing to go to the workshop after hearing Kimberly’s presentation may take that place.

October Guild Meeting: Rob Appell - Man Sewing

Rob Appel, our October 8 speaker, will be presenting his workshop on Wednesday. We have many people signed up but few have paid and there is interest from outside the Guild. Be sure to check the list at the August meeting. Fees will need to be paid by the September meeting.

Also, in October the 2019 Guild Challenge will be announced and sign-up sheets will be available.

Stay tuned!!!

Karen Sipos,

Vice President



Do You Have A Favorite Quilting Resource?

I am collecting information about new and interesting quilt websites, quilters' blogs and quilt alongside for our January meeting. It is my hope to be able to put together a resource sheet listing resources our Guild members use or recommend.

So......let me know what you use and maybe why you like it, and I will put the resource together. Just email me your recommendations at workshopsmvqg@gmail.com. If you would be interested in sharing in presenting any of this information at the meeting or sharing some of the quilts you made using the resources, let me know how to contact you. This will be a lot of fun.

Piecefully Yours,

Karen Sipos,

Vice President




A Note from the President...

Let us eat cake! Like our hot summer days, we will take a slower pace for our August meeting with a few games of Quilt-o and showcasing our

quilts. A great way to gain inspiration for future projects!

This summer, if you've visited a quilt show or an interesting quilt shop, let us here about them, too. Are you still collecting the Row by Row quilt blocks? During those hot summer days, has your sewing room become your best friend? I'm trying hard to finish a long list of UFOs. We could use someone to start a UFO challenge for us. I'll even join the list!

In the meantime, between the rain and the heat, happy quilting!
