WHAT'S NEW ON THE WEBSITE

  • Thanks to intrepid photographer Sue Hoffman, we have pictures of the quilts from our recent quilt show.  They are best seen on a computer, where you can look at each group as a slide show.  You'll be amazed at what you missed in real life!   They're on our new Quilt Show page.
  • We've got our budget for the 2024-2025 guild year for you to review before we're asked to vote on it.  It's in our Members Only section, a link to the budget is at the top of the page. Contact the president, Linda Jo Miller, or webmaster, Colleen Voet, if you can't remember the password.  (While you're there, check out the Member Pictures and send Colleen one if yours is missing!)

 

VISITING OPPORTUNITY QUILTS

We love to see Opportunity Quilts from other guilds and support them by purchasing tickets.  We have lists of who's scheduled to bring their quilt to our guild meetings for the next couple of years on our Contacts page.

 

FIFTH WEDNESDAY COMMUNITY SERVICE WORK DAY

Wednesday, July 31, 9 am to 2pm.  We meet at the First United Methodist Church at 109 Washington Blvd. Bring your sewing machine and a potluck item; everything else is provided (irons, ironing boards, cutting mats, rotary cutters, thread, kits, pin-basted quilts, etc,).  It's a great way to meet other members as well as to contribute to our Community Service effort.  Contact:  Cathy Urbanus

 

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

We're starting membership renewals for the 2024-2025 membership year.  You can find a fillable membership form here or more information and the form on our About Us page.

 

ZOOM MINI GROUPS

We have a mini group, open to all, that meets via Zoom every Tuesday at 2pm.  The group focuses on Missouri Star tutorials.  We watch a part, go away to do what Jenny tells us, then come back and watch the next step.  We share what we’re working on and have learned a lot of new techniques.  Contact: Jen Luton

A second group meets on Zoom on Tuesdays at 4pm - working on Temperature quilts.  With a Temperature quilt, you record the high temperature in your area each day of the month.  These temperatures are represented by colors you determine in advance.  The same Zoom login works for both groups.  Contact:  Jen Luton
