GALA News for July 2022


Hi Guild and Guild Fans!

Hope everyone had a festive holiday weekend.  We can always admire our red, white, and blue fabrics and dream of patriotic projects to sew!

Our next meeting day is Saturday July 15th at Trinity United Methodist Church in Phenix City, AL. It is located at 1600 5th Ave, but park on the downhill side which is 4th Ave – you’ll see our Guild signs.

(If anyone does not wish to receive this email, please let me know and I will delete you from the list – I do not have an “unsubscribe” link.)

Morning Workshop starts promptly at 10:00 (Eastern time), come in and set up your sewing machine and supplies any time before that.  Doors officially open at 9:30 but I am usually there by 9am and always appreciate help setting up signs, power cords, display wall, etc.  This month it will be part 2 of “One Block Wonder Quilts”.  Last month we stacked up 6 identical repeats of a fabric and cut strips into 60 degree triangles.  This month we will sew them into half-hexagons and plan a beautiful kaleidoscopic lay out.  This is being taught by Lee Ann Scogin.

At noon we will have an Ice Cream Social.  The guild will buy ice cream and sherbet.  Please everyone bring some sort of topping to share with a serving utensil.  Ideas include fruit, sauces, nuts, sprinkles, crumbled cookies, chocolate shavings, etc.  

Our meeting starts at 1:00 pm We will have a demonstration of rulers for our program.  As usual we’ll discuss business and upcoming events, give out some prizes, explain the new Block of the Month, and have a Show and Tell so please bring something to show.  It could be something you made recently or in the past, or something your grandmother made!

For those who want to participate in the Brown Bag Challenge –  please put 3 fat quarters in a brown paper lunch bag, along with your name written on a piece of paper inside the bag, not outside – and staple it shut.  Then we each draw a bag out of the pile and make something for that person with their fat quarters (with whatever we want to add). We will have it ready to present back to them at our December meeting.  It will be fun to see what people come up with!

We have CANCELLED our trip to the quilt shop in Childersburg scheduled for July 9 since the inventory there is getting quite low.  We will plan a future trip to a quilt shop or two- probably in the Macon or Atlanta area.

Please review the schedule attached written by VP Juanita Christian, and the minutes from our June meeting written by Secretary Frances Thomason for all the juicy details about what’s going on at guild!
