June 2013 Newsletter

Happy June, ladies and gentlemen,
I apologize for missing the last meeting.  My mother is home from the hospital, and doing a wee bit better.  Still weak, but trying hard.  Yvette was kind enough to get me some notes on the May meeting.

JUNE MEETING:  Laura Lein Svencner is our speaker for the evening!  She will begin after a brief business meeting.  She will give an 80 to 90 minute demo on what she does for collages.   There will be no show and tell tonight.  $10 cover charge per person for this event, which will include the usual $3 charge.  So, a total of $10 for the evening.  This is to cover the speaker and room rental fee.

"FOR THE LOVE OF FIBER", our next show, will be from October 18 - 26, with take down being at our meeting on the fourth Monday of October (the show ends the day before).  We will be getting the publicity underway.

FIBER FAKES CHALLENGE will be due at our September meeting.  (Another possible entry into the show!?!)  There is no size requirements, and I have absolutely no information on what that title means.  Yvette or someone?  Please let us know if we are making fiber copies of famous paintings, or what exactly this means.  Thanks in advance.

May's meeting had a lively discussion about the movie viewed at the April meeting.  It was followed by show and tell.  Some of our members have quilts in the Chicago IQF show in June, displaying their interpretations of a Modern Log Cabin!  Congratulations!
