Two of the guilds that I belong to are getting ready to have their major fundraising events for the up-coming year. I always contribute my time and make/donate things to help out. Pincushions are fun for me to make and something every sewer/crafter can use.
As with all groups there are the doers and well, those that take a more laid back approach! I am going to get on the soap box and say, your guild is only as good as everyone's participation. I am not saying you have to be in charge of the major fundraising events but doing nothing is not acceptable either. In order for a guild to stay vibrant everyone needs to help out and take turns. Different people with different ideas also make it more interesting for everyone.
The next thing you know people get grumpy and cranky, not a good idea for people who have rotary cutters! Even if you can only participate in a small way, please do so, all those little things add up. Ok I 'm done.
I think cat things sell well and this fabric has just come out, it is called Tabby Road by Tula Pink. I got mine earlier when I was in Houston before it was released to the public. The black and white is a Cotton + Steel.
The backs also sport new and cute fabric.
Why do things just look cute all lined up? These will be available at the Penn Oaks Quilt Guild Quilt Show For the Love of Quilting IX. May 5th and 6th, 2017 at Griffith Hall at the Ludwig's Corner Fire House in Glenmoore PA, (on Pottstown Pike).
We are a very small guild only 58 members but we have an awesome show, complete with vendors, raffle baskets, mini raffle quilts and food. You can also email me Kellymx@aol.com and I will be happy to answer any questions.
For more information and directions, you can go to our website at Penn Oaks Quilt Guild
I hope if you are nearby you will come and see us!
