Quilt Guild Meeting, July 7, 2011

Our July meeting was very exciting, we had two guests and one of them joined our guild. Our new member's name is MaryAnn Bockman, I had to laugh when she told me that she left her husband at Lowes while she came to the meeting. Also she has 15 grandchildren that she has been sewing for.  I would say that she is an experienced sewer.  She said she was excited about honing her quilting skills as well. Welcome, MaryAnn. 
The other guest was Dalayla Jackson.  Dalayla is the 10 year old granddaughter of one of our members, Doreen Bryant.  Dalayla has picked up the sewing bug from her grandma, while visiting her grandma she has made 3 quilt tops.  One she learned to tie the layers together, and the other she will get a chance to learn to quilt on Jean Liddle's long arm.  I think her grandmother is going to take advantage of that oppertunity also.
Dalayla was not too shy to show off her handywork during the show-n-tell part of the meeting.

The quilt guild was also excited to see the finished Oppertunity Quilt.  It is so beautiful and the guild will be selling chances to win the quilt at this year's Art Around The Square.  Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.

Don't miss out on getting your ticket. You can purchase a ticket from any of the guild members from now until September.
We also want to thank our hostesses, Shelly Clark and Denise Evans, for the delicous treats that they provided. Everything was so delicious and nutrious.

Now here are some of the photos of the show-n-tell session that we had.  Everyone was really busy last month, just about everyone had something to show.


As you can see, our quilts are not only for show-n-tell, they keep us warm also.

Well that is all for now, we look forward to seeing you all at the next meeting.
