April 10, 2019 Program – Getting Ready for the NLQG Quilt Show

April 10 – Program –

Our biennial show is this month. April’s meeting will involve last minute preparations for the quilt show. There will be no other program. Please bring any items for the NLQG Show to the meeting (Bags, Baskets, Bowls, Mini-Auction quilts, Books, and quilts) if you are a member. The May program will have a mystery speaker, still to be decided. The June program will include elections and pot luck dinner, we will begin at 6 p.m. rather than the usual start time. July we will be having Carla Klop followed by a workshop on Friday the 12th.

We are seeing snippets of Spring! Woo Hoo!

Due to weather, the February NLQG meeting will be postponed until Wednesday. February 20th

Due to the pending snow storm and icy conditions making driving conditions potentially treacherous, the NLQG meeting tomorrow night (February 13th) will be postponed until Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 6 p.m. The evening potluck and mug rug exchange will be the same. The meeting will still be held at the Methodist Church in Lebanon, NH.

December 12 meeting -Beth Helfter “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™”

We are excited to have Beth Helfter of EvaPaige Quilt Designs for our December 12th meeting presenting “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™” You can see her fabulous quilts at https://evapaigequilts.com

the Trunk Show is – “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™” What happens when you have a designer who not only wants to be as scrappy as possible but also hates wasting fabric? Well, all sorts of things, because that’s pretty much the definition of scrappy. But I took it one step further, and figured out a way to create HSTs that don’t have a twin, and waste no fabric, by sewing HSTs in “accordions.” Add another step, and you can sew the blocks for an entire quilt in individual accordions that come together almost like magic. It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever come up with (if I do say) and you’ll see the quilts from my book “Oompah! Jazz Up Your Scrap Quilts With the Accordion Sewn HSTs Method” plus a few surprise treats. You’ll want to pick up your accordion and join the oompah sensation!

As usual, the meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Methodist Church, 18 School Street in Lebanon, NH.

November 14 meeting – Community Service Work Day beginning at Noon

Hello from Community Service. We are working on getting ready for the Community Service Workday on November 14, 2018 from Noon to 8 p.m. We will have kits to put together, bindings to work on, and piecing backings to get quilts ready to go to the Long Arm quilters. There will also be some smaller quilts that some people may be brave enough to stitch in the ditch or do some simple quilting on their domestic machines. Also on this day, there will be projects for Pods in the Pulpit to be worked on. I am sure Jane will have more on that. This will be a potluck, so please bring some goodies to share. Feel free to bring a sewing machine if you want to sew, if not, there will be plenty to do. We will have ironing boards and cutting tables set up. We hope to see you there even if it is only for the regular meeting time.

Your Community Service Committee

Where? Lebanon Methodist Church, 18 School Street, Lebanon, NH.  When: Noon until 8 p.m. or so.
