November Workshop will be a continuation of the Double Wedding Ring Quilt taught by Frances Thomason. Workshop begins at 9:30. For the workshop, we are going to discuss ways of quilting and binding the wedding ring quilt. The quilt should be finished and sandwiched together. Quilters should bring a walking foot if they have one and a quilting or darning foot. We will cut binding if people bring fabric. It has to be cut on the bias. A fat quarter may be enough although it might be close. A half yard will be more than enough.
November Program will be presented by Ann from Southern Sewing. She will be demonstrating how to use your embroidery module to quilt your quilts.
Ft Mitchell History Day will be in April 2018. Linda Walker, Linda Hayes, and Carol Bradshaw will be talking further about the quilting demonstrations and quilt show to be held in conjunction. There is a proposal to hold our meeting at Ft Mitchell that day.
March 2018 will bring Nancy Mahoney to our Guild. More information will come later.

President’s Challenge for 2017: Continue to work on the charity quilts that will be donated to local police departments to be given to children in crisis. Bring any charity tops that have been completed. We have folks who can quilt them. It would be great to have quilts brought in periodically instead of having tons of unquilted tops at the end of the year. Remember: “Finished is better than perfect.”
President’s Quilt for Rebecca Chester. Instructions and fabric for the white strip were distributed. Guild Members provide nine different strips to go with the white. These are due in November.
Quilts are needed for the library. If you can bring one small quilt or medium quilt, please bring to any meeting for Linda Walker and she will take them to be hung.
