Hoffman Tour Monday July 31st

Sorry the guild meeting review and pictures aren't up yet...I'll try to get that done tonight or tomorrow.

In the meantime, the fun never stops, including our annual pilgrimage to Hoffman Fabrics, coming next Monday, July 31st!

Thanks again to our intrepid organizer Evie - she's put together an information sheet with all the important details.

Reminder: Guild meeting Tomorrow!

As I heard a friend say recently, "so much for June Gloom, now we're into July Fry!" Still, it's cooler here than on the sun:

Although I swear my patio gets close...:D Good time to pull out your wintry Christmas fabrics as you've only got 6 months stitching time until December 25th!

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:
  • Your homemade name badge
  • 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 are participating in the 2017 BOM, the fifth two blocks.
  • Cool bags you've made to show for Bag Lady/Gentlemen night.
  • Your Page 44 Challenge projects, as well as the magazine and page you got your inspiration from.
  • If you're participating in Cassandra's Row by Row, your rows are due.
  • If you were born on January, February, or July, you are invited to bring a snack to share (but it's not required!).
  • Bottled water or other non-alcoholic drink

See you all tomorrow!

Well, I finally got it working, so without further ado, here's our video for the June meeting - enjoy!
