Our next 3-day Day Retreat at Best Little Retreat Center in Texas will be held Wed-Fri, April 17-19. See all the details on the Day Retreats page.
The May meeting will be your first opportunity to sign up for your favority volunteer position during the annual quilt show. Whether you need a sit-down job, or a walking-around job, a behind-the-scenes job or a meet-the-public job, there will be a job that's just right for you. Show Committee members will be there to explain the jobs that will be available and help you find the best day and time for you.
In addition to volunteer sign-ups, the May meeting will present a preview of several skills demos that will be happening during this year's show. This is a special opportunity to see some demos that you might not get a chance to see during the show. Don't miss them!

Instructions for Blocks 1 through 13 are now available.
Introducing our newest challenge, the Quiltmakers Block of the Month! This challenge features 13 blocks over 6 months (in case you want to set your blocks on point) and is a study in color value and its importance in creating a successful quilt! At each meeting, we will be revealing two blocks, with the last three being revealed at the March meeting. For instructions, patterns, and fabric requirements, head on over to the Challenge page.
NEW on the Challenge page - See two sample layouts along with fabric requirements for each setting. These are just two of many possibilities - be creative!
