Member's Market Christmas in July
There’s still time to get a table at our “Member’s Market:Christmas in July” event. During our regularly scheduled evening meeting on July 8, our members have the opportunity to sell their wares. Who knows what the offerings will be this year. If you have something to sell, sign up for a table or two. Please contact Stephanie G or Marla N and let us know how many tables you would like. We will have them ready for you around 5:30 p.m.

QUILTS in the MILL SHOW 2018 NEWS
2018 is a special year for the guild – 30 years of continuous quilting education, charity outreach and fellowship.
In October 2018, the guild hosts our biennial Quilts in the Mill show. Special exhibits, are in the planning stage. Guidelines are available for the special 30th anniversary quilt challenge. A team of members are working to finish the beautiful raffle quilt, a modern twist on a New York Beauty design. Here are a few ways to support the quilt show now:
• For every project you sew, make an item for the show boutique
• make a mini quilt – a great way to try a new technique or make that really cute design that doesn’t go with your house - someone else will love it!
• Save your fabric scraps (2 inches or larger) for the show scrap basket (other quilters LOVE our scraps!)
• VOLUNTEER your time (even an hour will help) to a show committee. It takes all hands to create a fantastic show.
A collection box will be at every meeting to collect your show boutique items. Questions on boutique? Ask Ellen H.
Members, a reminder: according to CHQ bylaws, to exhibit quilts in the show, you must be a member in
1) dues paid in full
2) make 3 items for the show boutique
3) sell 20 raffle tickets
The time is now to start supporting the show! The January meeting marks the kickoff for the 30th anniversary quilt show. Ask me how you can help make the 30th anniversary show the best ever!
