Looks like another fun meeting planned for this Thursday. We'll be doing a bit of Community Service, so bring a sewing machine, iron or your cutting equipment! IF you have pillowcase instructions bring those along as well.
Bring along your 2013 Block of the Month blocks, quilt top or finished quilts for one last look. And don't forget your 2014 blocks as well.
And...the batik swap will happen too.
Hope you're all set for the quilting retreat and quilt show which are both happening in April.
I hear there is some kind of construction going on in the Sabana Grande neighborhood - allow a little extra time to get to the meeting on Thursday!
Do you remember when I went to Windowrock this summer to learn Navajo Weaving? That was particially funded by a scholarship I was awarded from the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta. What I did was write a proposal describing what I would like to do and how much it would cost and send it to them by the due date. If you have a class you would like to take locally or somewhere else or a project you would like to pursue you might give want to ask the AFAF for a scholarship too. Look at www.fiberartsfiesta.org and click on Funding Opportunities. The due date is November 16 so there is not much time.
TV to "record.". I believe it is on PBS.
This 73-minute documentary is hosted by Marianne Fons, and features
Eleanor Burns, Alex Anderson, and Mark Lipinski.
It's time to start thinking about our annual out of town retreat! It will be September 14, 15, 16 in Jemez Springs New Mexico at the lovely Hummingbird Music Camp. We have some fun things planned. Be sure to come to the July 5th meeting where we'll have a "meet the teachers" and all the information you'll need to sign up at the July 21 meeting.
Remember to bring to class on Thursday: your completedhomework. Option 1: a 9-patch or option 2 4 patches or option other. Cutting mat and rotary cutter, ruler that is at least 12" long, sewing machine, thread, pins, something to take notes with and your lunch if you are plan on staying.

Two notes I got today to pass on to you all:
From Sue Harris:
If you were planning to come to Bob's tomorrow [Wednesday, March 7th] don't! It's been cancelled. Lucy is sick, Robin has to work and it's my hubby's 71 birthday. I was planning to help set up and the leave to spend the day with Ron.
So we'll try it again another time, we'll let you know when.
"The Wildflowers of the Sandias". We're hoping that everyone will be inspired to look at wildflowers and their surrounding landscape. She'll have copies of her book for sale. Thanks to Marlene for setting this up! Bring your favorite floral quilts for decorations and show and tell!
