CSQ Fundraising Auction
Everything old is new again! Our next
meeting is a guild auction.
The item you bring may be a few years old
and you are done with it, but it might be a treasure for your quilting
friend sitting across the table from you. We’ll take checks or cash.
Kevin the Quilter will be our auctioneer. You
might remember him as our speaker in October 2017. He is energetic,
funny, and best of all, a quilter – so he will lend a great spin to the items
for auction. Quilting is in Kevin’s blood. Kevin blogs at www.kevinthequilter.blogspot.com.
One more thing to bring with you on Tuesday -- a friend. They can join in the fun for the evening and they need fabric too!
Be ready to take home something “new” with you.

Julie is a fiber artist and
instructor who loves to explore new avenues of creativity. Her talent with mixed media includes thread painting and photo transfer, using these techniques to create landscape quilts, fabric postcards, and one-of-a-kind journals. You may have seen already Julie as a teacher on Craftsy. This program is sure to give us an inspirational boost as quilters and sewers.

Guild Potluck Dinner
Every September our guild meets for a potluck dinner to
enjoy good food and great company. Bring something tasty to share, your appetite to sample lots of different dishes, your
latest Show-and-Tell, and a friend.
There's no doubt
that the food is central, but the most important ingredient is socializing. Each person is asked a "question of the year" that
shares something about their quilting life. It's a lovely evening spent with
old and new quilting friends.
The meeting (and dinner) starts early at
6:30 pm. If you can, arrive a little earlier (6-ish) to help set up the room. Make
sure you bring a serving utensil for your dish. The council provides plates,
flatware, napkins, glasses, and drinks.

2018 Quilt Challenge
This year's quilt challenge is to make a small
wall quilt that symbolizes your birthday month. It may be any size, but no
larger than 20” x 20”. We’ll hang them and vote on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. We
can guess the months depicted in the quilts.
