What a wonderful meeting!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all three of our wonderful speakers at Friday's meeting: Tiffany Sherman, who showed Shibori; Catherine Etter, who gave a great live demonstration of discharging; and Cheryl Mathre, who showed her beautiful examples of low water immersion dyeing. For those of you curious about the book Cheryl showed, it was Color By Accident by Ann Johnston. I'll get Christine to post some of her photos soon!

I plan to post more in the coming weeks about things like Tour de Quilt (including a possible van rental), our silent auction and gift exchange, and other exciting topics.

I hope everyone's round robins are going well. I know I can't wait until December to see the big reveal!

New location starting in September (yes, that's this month)!

Hi everyone,

In case you weren't at the meeting last month, we have found a new, permanent (at least for the next year -- does that still mean it's permanent?) location. We'll be at Mt. Pisgah Church in Midlothian. It's just about 1/2 mile east of Quilter's Corner.

Here's a link to a map showing where Mt. Pisgah is!

Quilter's Corner has been great in letting us use their space so far, but we're starting to get a little crowded in their classroom. Moving to Mt. Pisgah allows us to not sit on each other's laps! Also, we will be able to use the other spaces for classes and events.

Our next meeting is Friday, September 16, at 6:30 pm. We start gathering at 6:00.

Hope your round robin is going well! Remember, if you have problems, contact an officer!
