Phyllis Dermer has a request: Phyllis will trade home-made jam for jam jars (4 or 8 oz). She has blue-, straw-, and mixed berry jam (and other canned items). Please contact her a day or so before the meeting to make sure she brings what you want.
At the August meeting we will be playing Bingo. Instructions for the Bingo cards are from Fons and Porter. You only need to make one card to use. You are welcome to make more to contribute to Ronald McDonald House Quilts. All Bingo card blocks will be given to Ronald McDonald House Quilts to be made into quilt tops at the Quilters Roadshow in November.
Sunday, July 30, will be the next Sit and Sew for Ronald McDonald House Quilts. We will be working on Bingo card blocks. We meet from 1-4 PM at the AC Moore store located in The Centre at Deane Hill, 250 Morrell Road, Knoxville, TN 37919. This location is across from the West Town Mall, in the same shopping center as Kohls and Bed Bath & Beyond. You may bring your sewing machine and basic sewing and cutting supplies. An iron and pressing surface will be provided. There is plenty to do, so if you don’t want to bring your machine there will still be plenty to keep you busy.
The guild will have a booth at the Foothills Craft Guild Showcase of Fine Crafts, November 17-19, 2017. The show is a juried show and is held annually at Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park.
Lynn Sykes and Pat Pagni have information about upcoming workshops and classes which have been announced at the guild meetings and in the newsletter.
The contact person for the Guild 2018 Quilt Challenge is Mali Glazer. The quilts will be due at the February 6, 2018 meeting. The theme is Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. Specifications will be forthcoming.
