Here are the Show & Tell pictures from the February 2019 meeting. Because everyone was cooped up so long in January, there was a LOT of projects that were completed. Enjoy all the beautiful quilts!
FYI: The January 16, 2019 Meeting has been postponed —
“Dear Guild Members,
Due to the predicted Weather Advisory for freezing rain early this evening, we are going to postpone our Guild meeting tonight until next week. The program will remain the same as well as the time and place.
Please stay home and be safe!!
(I will attempt to call those who do not use e-mail or facebook. You might want to spread the word to anyone you think might not get the message!)
The December Christmas party was a big hit! A big thanks to our Christmas Party committee for a successful event.
“We had a great Christmas Dinner/Party in December thanks to the hard work and planning of the Christmas Committee (Kim, Maria, Deb, Alice, Andrea, and April). Congratulations on a job well done! The decorations were gorgeous, the food was delicious, the entertainment and games were great and the fellowship was the unsurpassed!” — Brenda Moore, President
Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy!
The Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild has recently begun to partner with the Kirksville Arts Association. This partnership will provide us with a closer working relationship with the KV Arts and allow more community exposure to what we do through quilt education. We currently meet in their temporary space on south Baltimore, in Kirksville.
This partnership was mentioned in the December MOSAIC News & Notes.
Also featured in the newsletter, was the “2nd Weekend of Quilting” class, co-taught by Alice Allinson and Andrea O’Brien, on October 6, 2018. Alice and Andi led twelve women through the proper cutting, pressing, and piecing techniques for the “Double Churn Dash” block, by Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Alice and Andi’s next “confident beginner” quilting class will be May 4, 2019 at the Arts Association Building. This will be geared toward the quilters from the October class, but also suitable for others who wish to learn about quilting.
