Showing and Sharing and Name Tags--Make a New One!

 Some of our fabulous Show and Tell from the last meeting! 

JoAnn presented a beautiful quilt to Colleen called "Pam's Lights" to honor her late friend and use some of her friend Pam's stash up.  So sweet!

Our new president, Crystal shared her new name tag with us and challenged us to make a new name tag to bring and wear at our next meeting--the first meeting in August.  We will pull a name of participants and someone will win a fat quarter bundle!  We love it when our members wear name tags so we can learn everyone's names!

When I went to the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild, I helped create a Pinterest board of name tag ideas which you can find here if you want to save time in the searching for ideas (if you are like me and do not come up with your own!).  There is a really nice tutorial over at Pile 'o Fabric for making a lanyard name tag which is the one I wound up making way back when, I love her southwestern design, but you could use any design and the tutorial for the lanyard part if you are interested in that.

If you have items to donate to Stash to Treasure for this Spring, Debbie will collect them anytime. 

Thank you Stephanie and Colleen for refreshments this meeting.  We do need more volunteers to sign up to bring refreshments, see Kathy and her book at the refreshment table to sign up anytime!
