Coming Up in July!

July 21 Meeting - We had so much fun at the July 7th meeting seeing many member's Poor Unfinished Projects and helping them choose one to finish bythe same time next year. A few people forgot to bring their projects. So, if you didn't get to participate at the July 7th meeting and you want to participate in the challenge, bring three unfinished projects to the July21st meeting and we'll chose one for you to finish by July 2010. This meeting will also be an ice cream social. That means bring some hand work and spend some time visiting with other members.

Just In from Jean - Delores and I (mostly Delores) have been working on our presentation for the July 21st meeting. Melissa from CPS will be coming to speak. Delores is also preparing a slide show of the quilts that have been donated. It should be interesting and informative.

July 19 Sew-in - Enjoy sewing in a cool space with lots of friends to chat with? Join us for part or all of the day at Desert Breeze Police Substation from 9:00am to 5:00pm. You can stop by at any time. Bring a project or projects to work on. You can bring a sack lunch or run out to a nearby place for lunch. This is a great time to get help from others on a technique or pattern that is giving you trouble. We will also have a planning meeting at 2:00 during the sew-in for the upcoming reunion meeting in October. (251 N Desert Breeze, Chandler, AZ - just north of ChandlerBlvd. between McClintock and Rural, park in the lot just north of thebuilding)

Small Quilt Auction - The small quilt auction is scheduled for October 6. Laura Harden will be our auctioneer. Now is the time to finish a small project to donate to the auction. If you have friends that like quilts,this is a great meeting to invite them to so they can bid on the quilts along with the rest of us. These quilts make great presents for the upcoming holiday season.
