August - Trunk Show by Augusta Cole
Last Saturday saw the inaugural Saturday Chapter Zoom Meeting.
39 people popped in to enjoy a preview of Augusta Cole’s upcoming trunk show, catch up with what’s going on with the Guild and, most importantly, catch up with friends that they haven’t seen for a while.
Augusta will be presenting her full trunk show during the Day and Night Chapters next Monday, August 10. The meetings will take place via Zoom at the usual times of 10 am and 7pm with 30 mins social time before each meeting.
If you are a Zoom newbie, would like to practice or just want to catch up with friends then watch out for the e-blast with the links to our “pop-in” sessions on a Tuesday between 10 am and 4 pm or Friday between 7pm and 10pm. Or check out the Zoom page in the members area of our website where you will find information on how to download and use Zoom as well as the links to all the meetings.
We really hope to see you all soon.
Each month we try to have a short program that teaches a technique or project, and is presented by fellow guild members. Contact any Saturday board member if you have suggestions for future programs. See your newsletter for up-to-date information.
Program: Norene Skiles- Spoonflower—Label Making
Mystery Quilt kicked off at February meeting and is still going via email.
UFO and Topper challenge is being overseen by Elizabeth Peake, and first project is due at March meeting.
UFO Challenge – Starting in January, members entered a UFO challenge for a $5 entry fee. List 5 UFO’s (Un-Finished Object), complete and show one UFO on your list every even month of the year. For each project completed, $1 is returned. At end of the program, money left over is raffled off to participating members. All 5 – 50%, 4 or more – 30%, 3 or more – 20%, only one prize awarded per winner.
UFO Topper Challenge – Same as UFO Challenge above, except, this is only to complete a quilt top. This challenge was created for those that don’t have the money to send off their tops to be quilted, or to purchase the backing to quilt it themselves. Same rules, entry fee and prizes as the UFO Challenge.
