September Meeting Notes!

CMQG Meeting Notes 
September 2013 – Looking forward to our coming year
(Thanks to Barb for taking notes!) 

Seatbelt Covers were swapped with all of the appropriate ooohs and aahhhhs
New Officers – A signup sheet went around to see who would like to lead our guild into our 4th year. Next month we’ll find out who will be helping out
Secret Santa – Jaclyn is going to organize a Secret Santa for those who want to participate. More news at the October meeting!
October is our Third Birthday! – Be sure and come celebrate with us! A food sign up list went around for goodies at the meeting. What would a birthday celebration be without games?? Here are a few that we’ll be playing – feel free to participate in some or all of them:

·         Quilter’s Strip Poker – bring strips from a jelly roll or cut your own. Cards are dealt and whoever has the highest card wins the whole kit & caboodle.

·         Musical Chairs – Bring 1 yard of nice fabric – text fabric if you can (you know, that cute fabric that’s out with letters, alphabet, etc.) Everyone passes the fabric around until; you guessed it, the music stops. Cut the fabric in half. Keep half and pass half. When the music stops; do it again. The fun continues until the strip is 1/8 yard. Bring scissors if you can because a lot of us ripped fabric last time and it didn’t always work very well.

·         Block Swap – Go to quiltville.blogspot.com and see the pattern for the Scrappy Trip Around the World (http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/scrappy-trips-around-world.html) . Make one in a bright color combo. Everyone who brings a finished block gets a raffle ticket. We draw one ticket and Voila! That person gets all of the blocks. How great is that??
All Day Sew In – June and Kathy G. are the brains behind this fun event: our very own Kathy F. with Keller Williams Realty has generously offered her office as a spot for a sew in. (Some of you may remember that we met there for our monthly meeting once last year.) Be sure to mark your calendar for November 2 from 9:00 – 5:00. A $5 donation will hold your spot and in turn you will be fed (they say “lunch” but I have a feeling there will be some all-day grazing going on), receive a participant gift and be able partake in fun events throughout the day. Whew! That’s a lot of fun for less than the price of two Starbuck’s Macchiatos, my friends.
Quilt Show: Heart of Ohio Quilters Guild is having their show October 4 and 5 at Bryn Du Mansion Field House. It’s at 537 Jones Road in Granville. They will have over 100 quilts made by their members, demonstrations, vendors, door prizes, a silent auction and red work raffle quilt. General Admission is $5 Hours are Friday 10 AM-8PM and Saturday 10 AM to 5PM. Parking is Free. For more info check out http://heartofohioquilters.com/index.php/quilt-show-mainmenu-185.
December Party – Joanna graciously offered the shop, Dabble and Stitch in Clintonville for our December meeting. It’s a new sewing lounge that sounds great. More info to come on the December Party, in the meantime for your reading pleasure, here’s the link to the shop: http://www.dabbleandstitch.com/
