Dust off one of your favorite quilting books for the meeting, and prepare to:

    1.  share a little of what you love and enjoy about the book,

    2.  show any quilt(s) you made from the book, and

   3.  open up the Zoom chat box (tab at bottom of your Zoom screen) during the meeting to enter any and all of your favorite quilting books noting title, author, and any inspiration you gained from your book(s). 


A list of all of these favorite books will be compiled and put on the website for reference and inspiration.

A Few Reminders and Bits of Information:

.  Sub-committee chair & help:

We are looking for a volunteer(s) to help us come up with a classified ads policy (what &/or whom to allow to advertise, fees, etc.).  We have neighboring guilds from whom to find examples.  These classified ads would be shared on the blog and perhaps Facebook listing items for sale or quilting services, for instance.  The Board has some ideas and would like a member to assist in this endeavor.  Contact Brooke Stambersky if interested. 

.  Show & Share/Quilt Quark Gallery: 

Send your photos of completed quilts with the subject heading Show & Share to or if after Wed. night, to Dana Blasi to be shown at the next meeting and featured in Quilt Quark.  Thanks for "photoshopping" your photos.
