Reminder: Guild meeting tomorrow!

This month we'll be joined by Shirley McGuire of EZ-WoolWorks for a fabulous trunk show and workshop to follow this coming Saturday. Spots are still available for the workshop, so be sure to sign up with Tami A. or Andie B. The cost is $35 and includes a kit with all the materials you need, a $15 value!


Here's your reminder list of things to bring:
  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your September 2019 BOM
  • If you are going to the RQG Fall Retreat in Oceanside, any remaining balance of the $225 cost.
  • Your Raincross Quilt Guild pin, which is worth an EXTRA ticket in the door prize drawing! If you don't have one, you can purchase one for $5 at the door.
  • If you were born in February, May, or October, you're invited to bring a snack to share (but it's not required!).
  • Bottled water or other non-alcoholic drink
See you all tomorrow!

Help the Goeske Center win the Aetna Health Contest!

From Paula W.:


"Guild Members, if you were at our last meeting in September, you learned that the Goeske Center was in a contest sponsored by Aetna Health with a chance to win $20,000. The $20,000 will help accelerate the development and expansion of much needed services that keep older adults physically active, socially engaged, and living independently for the long term. As you know, Goeske doesn't charge us to use the center, so if we could cast our votes for Goeske the last two days of the contest, it would be appreciated. Each of us can vote up to four times per day.

  1. Go to VOTE.JGF4SENIORS.ORG
  2. Cast your votes using one or all of these options:
  • Email
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter

You can encourage your friends and family to vote daily. Thanx!"

Free Sewing Room Accessories Patterns

The November Grab Game is quickly approaching - do you know what you're going to make? Me either! So I scoured the web for you to find some FREE sewing room accessories patterns out there for you to use or be inspired by. Remember, make something awesome enough that you really want to keep it for yourself (and maybe just go ahead and make two so you can!).

Blossom Needle Case


Pumpkin Pincushion
I'm linking to two; the original one by Fiskars and then another by Lori Kennedy, based on the Fiskars pattern but with some modifications. Check them both out to mix and match your ideas!

Mouse Pincushion
[Ed. note: I couldn't stand it - these guys are SO cute!]


Folded Star Mug Rug

Iron Caddy Tote (folds out to a travel ironing mat)
[Ed. note: I created this one, adding the extra step of using selvedges. The pattern, however, describes just using solid fabric and works just as well!]


Pear Basket
[Ed. note: I've made bunches of these as gifts - they sew up really fast!]
