We’re having an impromptu Halloween fabric exchange at tomorrow’s meeting Sept. 25, 1-3 pm, so if you’ve got a bit of Halloween fabric to swap, or if you’ve got any ghoulish projects in the works, plan to bring it all! We’ll meet outdoors at the Rose Garden in Julia Davis Park, Boise. Bring a chair to sit in, and show & tell of course! Given recent uptick in Covid cases, we want to make our in-person meetings as safe as possible, so plan on spreading out for a bit of social distancing and wear a mask if you prefer.
And if you haven’t already, check out the latest Member Spotlight featuring Cathy Rogers! Read about her reading tips, UFOs and how she got into quilting here.
Hope to see you tomorrow in the Park!
Our quilting day camp was such fun! Thanks to everyone who spent the day with us to sew, talk, pose for close-ups, eat, win, and all the rest. Shout out to Millissa Masters for her work designing and organizing a leader/ender project, which one day will be another Get ‘er Done community quilt; to Linda Jolly for applying her magic touch to the hexi quilts; and to everyone who helped sew (an unsew) the hexi blocks.

Here’s what some of our attendees said when we asked what they liked about the retreat:
“Food was great, lots of social time and great prizes.”
“Seeing everyone! Working on the community quilts. Sharing ideas and seeing what everyone is working on. I left renewed and inspired.”
“Seeing everyone again and just chatting with people. Getting my creative juices flowing again!”
“So very happy to get out of the house and sew. Thank you!!! LOVED the swag bag and I am excited for the tshirt.”
