August 2017 Meeting Recap

And we’ve completed yet another month of 2017.  Where is it going?  My take on it is that all of our members are really using their time to accomplish fabulous stitching.  I don’t think there’s any time left for sitting on the beach — hee hee.

*********************************************************************************************

President Chelsea kicked the meeting off by reminding us of our Sew Day this Saturday at the Foundation Building in Aptos.  9:30 – 4:30.  And we have one more scheduled for 9.16, same time, same place.

  • At the October meeting we will have a scrap swap/flea market to thin out your stash and possibly take home some $$.  As for the members shopping, you will add treasures to your stash.  Each seller will be responsible for $$; i.e., having change.  Or if you have something really special that might make a super door prize, you can donate it to the guild.
  • Our next meeting will go back to the first Tuesday of the month, so be ready on September 5.
  • Retreat:  10.19 – 10.22.  Any outstanding balance is due today.  You’ve probably received an invoice from Jen Namba.
  • Tara Faughnan workshops:  Both are full.  The supply list went out.  Tara will send additional info for the quilt workshop
  • Challenges:
    • Charity block – orange peel.  Due at next month’s meeting.
    • Make It Modern blocks for PVQA show
  • WIP on Instagram – be sure to post finishes
  • Kathrin Brown is here selling tickets for the Monterey Peninsula Quilt Guild’s Opportunity Quilt (below).

 

Gabrielle announced Road to California quilt show is 1.18.18 – 1.21.18.  They sent us two tickets.  If you’re planning on going, send a message via email to SBAMQG@gmail.com to enter your name to win the tickets and the winner will be chosen from those submitted.

Guests:

  • Kathy Howard
  • Cari’s mom
  • Lyn Sandberg

BREAK with incredible spread of everything imaginable provided by Cari. Thanks so much.
