More This N That

Did you know we now have over 500 Happy Bags!  Woohoo!  And we're still accepting them for next year.  The next step is to stuff them.  We're shooting for Nov 15th for stuffing. What we need now are items with which to stuff them, especially for the older kids.  What kind of stuff?

  • color pencils to draw with
  • coloring books
  • crossword puzzle books
  • journals
  • pens/pencils
  • cards
  • stationary, stuff like that
  • nothing edible.
Note: consider size of our Happy Bags when buying any of the above.  With your help, these bags will again be the hit of the Christmas party.

Also - we're nearly there to the 60 lap quilts for the Veteran's Hospital.  Turn in the one's you have and we'll get them there close to the Holidays.

Fall in Love with Quilting

from: http://bumblebutton.blogspot.com/

The theme for our October Guild retreat is Fall in Love with Quilting.  There are a couple of spots left. We will be starting a waiting list.  This second retreat of 2014 will include all meals. Thus the higher fee $65.00 plus the room.  We will again be at the Ayre's Hotel in Moreno Valley.  Call Susan M or Barbara M for more details or reserve your spot.  Lots of fun things are once again planned for this sewing weekend of October 17-19.

Color Challenged?

c. www.design-seeds.com
Are you color challenged when putting a quilt together?  I am.  I've found this great website that pulls palettes of colors from photos.  While I haven't used one yet, I get the emails from them and study the ones that they present. Then I decide if I like it or not.  I then file them (in my head) to get better on seeing what goes with what.  A mind exercise, but I think it will help me over time get better at picking colors that go together.  Here's the link.                                                       Angie
