The Night Chapter will be running a Mystery Quilt starting in February and going until July with a special show and tell in August. Each month when you bring in your completed steps your name will be entered for a prize. Those who bring their completed quilts in August will be entered for a GRAND prize!! If you have not already signed up then e-mail Wendy Barrett, or myself to let us know that you are interested in participating. Due to publishing and monetary restrictions we need anyone interested to sign up in advance so that we can have the correct number of instruction copies for our kick-off in February. We are also asking for anyone who has completed a mystery quilt in the past to please bring it to show at February’s meeting.
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.
