All the members of the Lakeside Quilting Guild would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our friends and family who contributed to our recent fundraising effort. We held a drawing for the prize of a vintage quilt at our December meeting. A video recording of the event is available here via YouTube.
We are making great progress on our blockmaster red and white fabric challenge -- to date 22 blocks in red and white fabrics have been completed by our guild members. We'll be starting a new challenge in early 2014, so why not finish off 2013 with a flourish and whip up a couple of blocks of red and white fabrics? You might be able to use that candy stripe fabric that has been lingering in your stash....
Two of our guild members were in Danville this past week and shared the news that some of the Gee's Bend quilters will be at Threads and Beds/Threads of Time quilt center in Danville, IL on March 24, 2014.
Threads and Beds retreat center is already fully booked for the weekend, including Mon, March 24, but anyone interested in meeting the Gee's Bend quilters should contact the retreat center for details. It may be possible to find overnight accommodations nearby. The telephone number for the shop and center is (866) 431-9202.
You can see work by the Gee's Bend quilters at this website from Auburn University featuring a catalog of work: http://www.auburn.edu/academic/other/geesbend/explore/catalog/slideshow/

If you have not previously signed up to bring a dish to share, please bring a savory appetizer -- we have plenty of sweets!
Don't forget your decorated brown paper bag with your four (4) fat quarters of fabric inside for our Christmas gift exchange. It should be a lunch sized plain brown paper bag, decorated however you choose. Include a notion or two as a little something extra. Be creative -- you can provide four similarly themed fabrics, a novelty fabric and three blenders, different values in the same color, whatever you like.
We'll also be doing the drawing for the raffle vintage quilt at this meeting, so if you have additional donations of checks or cash, don't forget to contact our treasurer or email email@example.com to let us know so that we can enter all the eligible donors into the drawing!
