March Meeting Information

Our program for March is Becky with "On Point Layout".  

Looking ahead April will be Margaret & Ellen with "Prairie Points".  

Julie needs ideas/volunteers for months after May. Have you learned a new technique recently that you are willing to share? Do you know a quilter who might come and do a trunk show? How about another craft that you would like to show and share with us? Every idea is a good idea for programs! If we each committed to do one program we would be covered for at least 3 years.

In other news:

  • Please bring February BOM blocks to the meeting
  • We hope to have an update from Susan on a schedule for delivering veteran's quilts. Bring any that you have finished.
  • Hold any veteran's quilt tops until April, Vicki will not be at the March meeting.
  • Bring any baby-sized quilts that you want to donate to VCU. Peg will get them to Mary Shall.
  • Bring show and tell!
In the last meeting we agreed in supporting 2 charitable organizations this year: Virginia Quilt Museum and WHEAT. I believe we agreed to send each $50. We can collect food or pass envelopes later in the year if we want. We will review organization support at the beginning of each year.

Vicki was asked by the Alzheimer's Association for us to do a local fundraiser (longest day in June) for them and possibly make a quilt. Remembering what we agreed to in the last meeting, Vicki declined but if anyone wants to make something to support their annual November auction let Vicki know and she will put you in touch with the contact.
