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
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
"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
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
October Guild Meeting: Rob Appell - Man
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.
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
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.
A Note from
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!
meantime, between the rain and the heat, happy quilting!
