REMINDER - We are returning to the Masonic Lodge for our regularly scheduled meetings. 1110 W. East Ave., Chico, CA.
Our May meeting, May 1, will be a walk back to the Civil War. Arlene Arnold is a delightful "southern belle" and she will be sharing her extensive civil war quilt collection. She will also be offering a workshop on Friday, so be sure to check out the details with the Workshop Chairs, Michelle and Gail. And if you didn't get signed up, call and see if they still have room. this block is very versatile and Arlene is excited to play all day with us.
We are having another Community Service Sew Day at Ord Bend, May 17. If you haven't attended one of these, take the time. They are great fun; an old fashion quilting bee with a fabulous pot luck lunch. We make amazing progress on meeting our community service commitments and have a great time in the process. Come sew, eat well and visit. It's an opportunity to share with your guild members and know you are contributing to our community. See calendar for directions.
This nice weather reminds us that many are soon to be off with summer plans. Before you go, check out the workshops coming up in summer and fall. You will want to get signed up before they fill! August is Peggy Gelbrich on Paper Piecing and September is June Jaeger, a designer using applique and piecing.
Also, looking forward to our quilt show, November 7 & 8, 2015, see where you can help out. Suzanne is great to work with, so give her a call. There are still lots of positions to help with. Grab a friend and add your name to the list of quilt show worker bees.
