September 2016

...and here we are once again!  Hello one and all!  We are rapidly approaching our next quilt show (thank you very much, Naperville Art League!), and I'm sure we're all working hard to finish up our entries.  I know I am...for a change!  I am basically an unregemented, unorganized, unmotivated sole.  In my next life I will know how to make better use of my time.  That said, I hope that you all are better than I am in all of the areas mentioned.
I apologize for no newsletters for the last few months.  I was unable to attend, and had no notes to pass your way.

Quilt Challenge due this month!  "Literally Fiber"

I'd like to take this time to remind you that your challenge is due at the next meeting.  This can be used as one of your entries for the show!  Woo-hoo!  I'm sure you never even thought of that!
96" maximum perimeter.  Based or inspired by a book, either it's title or it's content.  This could be VERY interesting.  I look forward to see the fruits of your labors.  Sounds like a cookbook....  You will need to have the name of the book and what your inspiration was ready.

"Elements of Innovation" quilt show - Oct 12 - Nov 5

Our show will be at the Naperville Art League from October 12th to November 5th, 2016.  Fiber art drop off will be from noon to 3 on October 11th, and it will then be set up.  As before, please have your pieces there on time.  If you are to be out of town, please pass it to a friend who can drop it off for you.
Show hours:  W, Th, F - noon to 4, Sat 10 - 4
Artist's reception:  Sunday, Oct 16 from 2 - 4
We have 2 people ready to do demo's and are looking for more for the reception.  Maybe a make and take event at some time during the entire show time.
We've discussed business cards, postcards and submittal forms.

...and that's it!

Our next meeting will be on Monday, September 26th at 7 pm at the Naperville Art League, with a mere $3 meeting fee.  I'm excited to see the challenges!  You go, girls!
