Hello Everyone,
Activities for Thimbleweed Quilters have begun for 2018! Please be sure to check out the Finish-it Club 2018 for information about how to join in this year's on-going effort to help you finish (or begin) those projects. Also on this page you will find information about the Row-of-the-Month pattern available called Seminole Sampler by Reeze of Morning Glory Designs. Our Community Service committee has several projects in the works and would appreciate your efforts and skills to help various organizations in the Rio Rancho and Albuquerque area. Be sure to take a look at this meeting's Show & Tell. We have some ambitious and talented members to give you inspiration. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting! 
Happy Stitching, Holly

Hello Everyone,
We had a pleasant time at the the annual Soup and Conversation meeting to start the New Year.  Show & Tell began with a bang with several lovely quilts and projects presented.There are several ongoing and new projects planned for Thimbleweed Quilters in 2018. Check out the upcoming meetings tab to stay current. Several openings are available in the schedule to present a demonstration or project for the group to participate. If you have an idea for a project you would like to see happen or are willing to present/teach, please let Benee K, Irene R, or myself know and we'll work with you about it. Be planning your list for the Finish-it Club 2018 registration beginning at our next meeting on January 18. There will be more news about a possible Row of the Month and sew-alongs you might want to join. Thimbleweed Quilters is your group. Let's make 2018 a fun-filled year.
Happy Stitching, Holly P

Hello Everyone,
Lots of new pictures to see. Be sure to look under Finish-It Club and Fun Times as well as Show & Tell to be inspired. Our Holiday Dessert Tea was festive and exceptionally SWEET! Our Thimbleweed bakers went all out and we all had more treats than thought possible. Benee and Irene acknowledged and presented a small gift to each of the program leaders plus a special gift for me. 


Wow! I am honored. This gift of a Personal Purple Quilt is so special. Thank you so much to BeneĆ© and the Thimbleweed Quilters for this lovely expression of appreciation. The beautiful label that BeneĆ© embroidered says: “Presented to Holly Plugge from Thimbleweed Quilters for Continuous Exceptional service. Designed, Created and Quilted by Benee Kethcum December 2017.” I am grateful to be a part of this creative and caring group. I appreciate being wrapped in friendship. Hugs! 

I wish you each a warm and safe holiday season. There are no more meetings in December. Our next gathering is January 4, 2018 for Soup and Conversation.

Happy Stitiching, Holly P

Hello Everyone,
Thimbleweed Quilters had another interesting meeting today. There were some beautiful pieces at Show & Tell. The photos that Page G kindly took for me at the Sept. 21 meeting are posted as well. After the meeting 21 quilters brought their machines and worked on the goal of 100 doll bed quilts. We'll hear about how successful that was at the next meeting. The 25th Birthday Bash for Thimbleweed Quilters is the next meeting. Please see the Upcoming meetings tab for details on the project and what to bring. There will be Cake!
Happy Stitching, Holly P.
