Reminder: Guild meeting Tomorrow!

A few announcements...

Some of you may have heard Jeri say something about a white elephant gift exchange at the end of the June meeting. Not everyone heard, so we'll reschedule that for another time. Save your item until then!

We will not be having a Rags to Riches table this month; watch this space for the next meeting where we'll have that table.

This month's meeting theme is Christmas in July/Feliz Navidad en Julio, so please feel free to bring any Christmas works in progress or complete items and we'll share a few easy projects you can make in time to welcome Saint Nick this year!

Finally, our own Yvonne Weinstein and her husband Jeff are headed to Uganda for at least to year to become missionaries! Our help is needed for them so that they can help those in need in Uganda. Yvonne will be teaching women in Uganda how to sew, so please feel free to bring new or like-new sewing notions (no fabric) for her to take on mission:
hand sewing needles, scissors, buttons, zippers, thread, small cutting mats, cording, ziplock bags, thimbles, straight pin, lace or ribbons, felt, tape measures

Follow the Weinsteins trip on their blog.

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:

  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your June 2019 BOM
  • Round Robin Exchange #2 - if you can't make it, please make sure you complete your addition and give the bag to a friend who is coming to exchange for you
  • 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!

Reminder: Guild meeting Tomorrow!

I promise to do better with the blog the second half of this year; I have no good excuse.

That being said, tomorrow is our June meeting and our annual summer potluck! Twice a year we invite everyone to bring a dish or dessert to share - but as always, it's not required.

And here's an idea for all those extra blocks and bits and bobs you've made along away - piece them together into a "potluck" quilt! Do you have a potluck quilt? If so, bring it tomorrow for Show and Share!

Potluck Quilt by Barbara Schaffer

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:
  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your May 2019 BOM
  • 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.
  • It's the potluck, so everyone is invited to bring a snack to share (but it's not required!).
  • Bottled water or other non-alcoholic drink
See you all tomorrow!

P.S. The second Round Robin exchange is due NEXT month, at the July guild meeting. Please feel free to contact Cassandra if you have any questions.

Coolest thing you'll see this week: baby eagles!

This is completely non-quilt related (other than we emblazon so many quilts with their images), but humor me, you'll love this.

I saw this linked on Facebook this morning and I've had it up and running on my iPad pretty much all day. It's absolutely fascinating to watch!


Learn more about this eagle nest and live web cam here. Enjoy!
