Island Quilters Guild - May 2024 Show 'n Share


May's program was a very interesting one by Nancy about 'thread'.  How many of them have you tried? Have you ever made a sample like the one she gave us?  She made enough of these for us to look at as she explained the qualities of each, using the same bobbin thread for each one.  Thanks, Nancy!

Island Quilters Guild - April Guild Sale, Joe Price Auction and Show 'n Share

 Because Joe Price bequeathed our guild many of the items from her sewing room, we took the opportunity to hold a sale for those things as well as a silent auction for some of Joe's kits and sewing machines and a sale of item from guild members.  It was a great evening and here are some of the photos taken by Brenda N.

After the sale, we had our meeting, including our show and share items.  We thanked the organizers of the recent workshops:  Freda B. and Deborah G. and two of the workshop leaders:  Rolanda T. and Kathy G. (Missing is Myra T.)

Brenda P. used 'orphan blocks' - some from Joe P. to make this charity quilt.
