The Night Chapter meets monthly on the second Monday of the month at the Community United Methodist Church on Old Kempsville Road in Virginia Beach.
Each meeting starts with a program followed by Guild business, a break for fellowship and "fringe elements" along with show and tell. During the meeting you can pick up some raffle tickets for the Guild Raffle Quilt, sign up for an upcoming program, interact with Guild leadership, make use of the Guild Library and just visit and have fun.
Our program in January is going to be “First Quilt, Last Quilt.” If you would like to participate, please bring the first quilt (or one that you made very early on) and one that you have made recently (or perhaps are working on). We will have a show and tell where each of you can tell what the first quilt was you made, when, etc. and then your latest quilt. We want to know about things you learned along the way i.e. how to cut correctly, color choosing, quilting differently, etc. I think it will be great to see how everyone’s talent has developed... and for any newer quilters at the meeting they can see and learn new things as well.
