Lunch at Suwannee Rose Café (Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe)

If you quilt, collect, study or just love antique quilts and the women/men that made them, please join us at the Florida Quilt Museum on Saturday, October 15, 2016. This is an opportunity for you to share your own antique quilt treasures with other individuals that will be attending this event. Time will be spent viewing and discussing each quilt brought to the event.

This is also the opportunity for you to spend time at the museum and see the wonderful exhibits currently on display to include a 1920’s quilt exhibit from the collections of Teddy McMahon Pruett and Kathy Metelica Cray.

November Retreat

The retreat will be held Friday, November 4th, and Saturday, November 5th, from 9A to 9P at Grace Baptist Church on NW 39th Ave.

Registration can be done by mail to Kathy Counts, 4031 NW 16 Pl, Gainesville, 32605, or at the October guild meeting. Please print and complete the registration form (see link below) and make check payable to Tree City Quilt Guild for $40. (FYI - Checks mailed to Kathy this month will not get to Richard until the October meeting). The cutoff date for registration is October 21st. Copies of the registration form will also be available at the October guild meeting.

A signup for volunteering to help with meal setup and cleanup is included on the registration form. This worked very well at the last retreat, to help get acquainted with other members and to make meal preparation "quicker and funner." 

Volunteers are also requested to provide snacks and desserts. Coffee will be provided.

Mini workshops may center around preparation for our quilt show, e.g., a quiz on quilt categories using previous entries, etc.. Volunteers with ideas for other mini workshops should speak with Kathy Counts or Susan Roland. 

A reminder, including a recommended supply list for the retreat, will be emailed prior to the retreat. 

Thank you

Kathy Counts

September Guild Program - CANCELED

Tree City Quilters Guild Fashion Show

Do your hair, put on your lipstick, and don your piece of wearable art!

Everyone has a handbag...a jacket....an apron...a scarf that you have made.  Time to show it off at the Tree City Quilt Guild fashion show.  Please make sure you know the pattern source so you can tell the audience.  There will be participation prizes.

Even if you were gifted an item,please bring it to model, otherwise, I think I have a Mrs Claus jumper circa 1985 that you can model.

Leesa Lloyd has volunteered to organize and emcee this program.

*D*A*Z*Z*L*E*R* Award:
To encourage everyone to wear their guild name tag to meetings the membership committee has instigated the *D*A*Z*Z*L*E*R* award. At each guild meeting two anonymous judges will be appointed to choose a name tag that they like. There is no scorecard, but both judges will agree that this name tag is the *D*A*Z*Z*L*E*R*. The winner will receive a dazzling gem to wear on their name tag. So remember to wear your name tag and join the fun.
