2021 Meetings and Programs:
Meeting February 15, 2021. We will conduct the meeting via Zoom, featuring a virtual Show & Tell! There will be Zoom prizes drawn during the meeting!
* The Zoom link will be emailed to you from Betsy a few days before the meeting.
* Please plan to share up to 3 pieces during the meeting—works in progress (WIPs…) are most welcome!
How to participate? You’ll simply enter something like “call on me” or “me please!” into the Chat function and you’ll be recognized and invited to share your work with the group.
2021 Quilt Gallery. Photos of your projects will be posted on the Big Red Quilters’ Guild website, kicking off our 2021 Members Gallery. Please plan to email photos of your work after the meeting, including any other projects you would like to share to Janet.
· Retreat. The retreat originally scheduled for March 2020 has been rescheduled for September 21-23, 2021. At present the retreat is full; Barb Bredemeier will email participants individually with status of fees paid. The Board is starting work on retreat planning for 2022!
· Fabric Challenge. Nineteen brave souls are participating in the Fabric Challenge and were delivered the gift of ½ yard of fabric by our Fearless Fabric Fairies.
* Completion of the challenge is scheduled for our Zoom gathering on April Fool’s Eve, March 31, 2021. (Remember that the project does not have to be quilted, but participants should have a completed quilt “top”, runner, wall hanging or other quilty project to share.)
* Thank you’s to Kris Kennedy for leading us on this project, to Betsy Muir for assistance in procurement and planning, and to Nora Slikkers for her donation and encouragement, as well as a sincere shout-out to the Fearless Fabric Fairies who provided delivery unfailingly! This should be a famously fantastic, fun feature of 2021!
· April Meeting. We are looking forward to a School House program for our April meeting. We will keep you posted on more details as they become available!
We welcome your suggestions for future programs and teachers.
