This week's meeting is quickly approaching. We'll be having Kathy Sublett's class. I hope you signed up for the class. Check the newsletter for the supply list...and remember $5 for the kit fee. I bet Kathy would appreciate exact change. Remember if you're in the class, set your machine up on the East side of the room, so all students are near each other. Also, please keep in mind it needs to be pretty quiet while she's presenting...so if you're not in the class, please take your conversation to the back of the room or the foyer.
And, this is the meeting for the walking field trip around Sabana. We'll all be learning the new entrance, where the bathrooms are, and good parking spaces in the back. Lori from the city will be our tour guide!
Our library will be set up, so check (tee hee hee) it out!
At this meeting you can check out raffle tickets from Vicki.
I hope you'll remember your nametag, so you won't be sad if your name is drawn (like someone we know).
This will be the last meeting to bid on Gail's sample garments. Ann Driscoll will be telling everyone when time is up for the bidding, and then she'll happily accept your checks. Please make them out to Thimbleweeds with "4-H" in the subject line. It looks like we'll surpass our $250 goal!
Kathy sent this note about a fabric art installation at UNM:
Special Opportunity for quilters - Join us after the NMQA January 23rd monthly meeting for a special viewing of Maine art quilter, Elizabeth Busch, "Outside- Inside" installation at the new Scientific Lab. It is an extraordinary work commissioned by state of NM. There are 11 pieces ranging in size to 18'. Look at her website for an idea of her work www.elizabethbusch.com.
The Scientific Lab is located at 1101 Camino de Salud NE - off University south of Indian School. It is the last building on the street. Park in the lot that overlooks I-25.
The opening will be from 1:00 - 2:00. Due to security at the building, please bring a photo ID for entry/sign in. The installation is located in the main lobby of the Lab.
She also suggests you bring your camera!
