Gwinnett Quilters' Guild

Current Program

May 17, 2022*******************************************************************************************

Masks are optional.

No food or drinks will be provided.

The door on the left side of the building will be locked; however we will have someone stationed there to let people in from 9:30 until 10:05.  If you arrive after that time you will need to enter through the door on the opposite side.  (the side by the traffic light)

Show & Tell – Because we expect everyone will be anxious to show what they have been doing over the shut-down, we will enforce the two quilt limit for show & tell.  We need to give everyone a chance to display their projects.

Free Table – The Free Table will be set up for you to share your treasures.  At the end of the meeting, please take home any of your items that were not chosen.

GOT TICKETS?

The birthday table will be set up for our first time back together in two years!  Raffle tickets are still a bargain (when everything else is rising in cost).  Just $1 will get you four tickets.  Those having birthdays in January, February and March, please bring an offering for our birthday table.  Time for us to gather and have a great time!

Just For You Celebration

The church sanctuary is booked for our June “Just for You” display!! It might actually happen this year! Get those quilts made!  Theresa will have labels and kits at the March meeting. Look for her somewhere near the membership table.

Just For You Presentation – Tuesday, June 21, 2022

The 2022 “Just for you” presentation will be June 21 in the Canon Church sanctuary. Please bring your quilts that day, no sooner.

We will need volunteers to help with quilt drop offs and displays as well as many people (30 would be good) who are willing to wash and bag the quilts for delivery after the presentation. Volunteer sign ups will be at the MAY meeting.

Remember- quilting should be no further than 4” apart for all 80/20 batting and polyester batting. 100% cotton needs to be even closer; Warm and and Natural can be further apart. I can usually tell by feel what batting was used.

Thanks, Judy Swafford

Spring Community Service Project

Our spring project,  due at the May meeting, is pil-lowcases!!!  We will be making them for Ryan’s Case For Smiles (RCFM), caseforsmiles.org, who give them to hospitals all over the area.   Pillowcase instructions as well as the guidelines from RCFM are at:
Shabby Fabrics or MSQC.  They both have good tutorials on making them.

The J4U bee group is now meeting at the Elks Lodge in Tucker on the first Tuesday of each month at 10 am, usually until 2 or 3 pm. We have space for a few more people to join us. You can work on the kits (which I will quilt) or your own J4U quilt. Email me if you would like to come.
