 February 2015

To help cover the costs of bringing in speakers to the guild.  The board has voted to increase the guest fee to $7.00 on the nights we have a speaker.  We do try to keep the cost down to our guest and members but the cost of hosting speaker lectures and workshops has been increasing. Speaker fees can be paid upon admission.

Thank you for your understanding.

October 29th Meeting
This is the night for our drawing for the RAFFLE QUILT.... be sure to turn in your tickets and the money.

 Clean out your closets and bring your uncompleted projects! The guild auction is a must-attend event, you'll be surprised at the wonderful items that will be raffled off!
FOR our new members I am going to try to explain how our AUCTION works.

Members donate any notions, fabric, books, sewing equipment they no longer want to store in their home.  ( Gently used is okay)  This is an opportunity to clean out the items that are still useable but YOU do not have a use for. Everything donated should be clean and in good repair. Fabric should be quilt shop quality and in good repair / status ... No longer sew clothing, maybe this is a good time to donate such items.

I am not 100% sure but anything not won will be donated to Good-Will or Salvation Army. This is what has been done in the past.

TABLES will be set up with the items displayed. A paper bag will be used to collect tickets. There will be a blind drawing for the items donated to the auction.

TICKETS for the raffle will be sold the night of the action. 4 tickets for a dollar

 .... Bring  your mailing labels with you so that you can label your tickets. 
So bring your money and be ready to go home with NEW TO YOU TREASURE.

EMPTY BOBBIN SEWING GROUP is providing hospitality so per their usual... it will be excellent. 


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


NOVEMBER  17th speaker has cancelled.  The board is planning some fun guild activities  ... So stay tuned to the newsletter for future information.

IF you are a member of the EVENING STAR QUILT GUILD, you are entitled to join the FACEBOOK group.  You first must have a FACEBOOK page of your own.  YOU do not have to post on it if you do not want to.  YOU do not have to fill out the FACEBOOK survey or information page if you do not want to.  ( I never do. I just ignore their request because I think it is none of their business.)

Send in a request to join the group and you will be accepted.   In your request please indicate you are a member it is a lot easier to find you in the membership spread sheet.  YOU can just read what is posted, you can post pictures of your projects, you can share information and start some conversations.  Be as active or inactive as you want. 

I try to post whatever updates or information I find about our guild on FACEBOOK and the blog so it is nice to be a member of the group.  Contact me if you have any questions.
