Feb. 7 guild meeting – Challenge Quilts due.
The February 7, 2017 Meeting is the Guild Quilt Challenge meeting. Bring your “Fun with Flags” quilts to the meeting. Contact Marion Sykes or Lynn Sykes with questions.
SMQ will be hosting a spring retreat. Please contact Lynn Sykes if you have questions.
Spring Retreat – Are you ready to have some fun? May 26 – 28th, SMQ will invade the Whistlestop Quilt Retreat in Sweetwater, TN. The cost will be $170 per person and we have room for 18 people to attend. We will begin accepting payments at the February meeting. If you have not seen pictures of the farmhouse, it is beautiful. It was built around 1860 and has 5 large bedrooms and 4 ½ bathrooms. Each of the twin beds are covered by a quilt made by a local quilter. There is a sewing room that gives 14 people their own sewing station, each with its own table, padded desk chair and trash can. Cutting tables with mats and rulers are available as well as a large custom ironing station with quality irons. Electrical outlets are located on top of each table for ease of use. There is also plenty of room in the parlor or the sunroom for the hand sewers in the guild. This is going to be a fun weekend, filled with games, laughter, good food, friendship and we might even sew a little. If you want to check out the farmhouse, visit http://www.whistlestopquiltretreat.com.
A lifelong quilter is ill and wants to immediately sell ALL her quilting stuff. Below is information concerning the items she has and pictures are below:
She might sell some of it separately but is hoping someone will want it all and just take it for a bulk price, but she is terminal and in a hurry to settle for what she can get for her children, so obviously she is a motivated seller.
Members should have received email from Linda Mincher about the contact details. Click on pictures to enlarge.
Contact Linda Mincher by January 21 if you have any items for the January newsletter. We welcome your articles on quilting, quilt store and book reviews, as well as for sale ads. Please make your ad short and succinct.
