Location: Westside Baptist Church in the Family Life Building (behind the church).
10000 W. Newberry Rd. Gainesville. 
2.56 miles west of The Oaks Mall.

February Program: 
Program for the February 13th meeting will be speaker Nancy Roberts. She will have a trunk show that includes her Fiber Arts, and Journal Quilts. Don't miss this one!

From your Quilt Show Chairman:
We are heading into the home stretch with the quilt show. So many ideas, plans, and work is already un-derway. We will have two more quilt show meetings before the big event – March 6th and April 3rd at 7:00 PM at Valerie Malkemes home. Please plan to come if you are a committee chairman AND, also, if you are a member and looking to help in some way.

And, while we are on the subject, the deadline to submit your entry is approaching fast. The registration form is on our website and the deadline to get it to Sheila Hayes is March 17th! Please submit your entries and learn with the rest of us – one of the benefits of a quilt show is that we learn so much and how to quilt better!

We will have more show details at our guild meeting on the 13th and the show meeting on the 6th. Helen

News From the Quiltique:
This month I would like to give you a couple of links to some “Free Patterns” for some nifty looking bags and things. You may find some of these items easy to make for the quiltique! 

I hope you enjoy these links, and hope to see some of these items for sale at the quiltique in May 2017! Later! Deena Sanders, Quiltique Chairman

Basket Raffle for the Quilt Show:
With only 4 months to go, I have only collected merchandise to make three baskets plus two generous donations of a server and the full set of the Elm Quilt book series.

Now is the time to clean out your sewing rooms for all the books, Fabric, notions, patterns and containers to help make our show successful and profitable. Please remember to be thoughtful and include items that you would like to receive. Bring them to the meeting...and I will coordinate them into something wonderful.

Thanks for your help in advance.
