News


Finally, this is Thimbleweeds week!  We'll be meeting at Star Heights rather than Sabana Grande.

There is a lot going on!
1.  Pay the remainder of your camp fee.
2.  Sign up for Kathy Sublett or Barbara Gary's class.  There is a $5 kit fee for either class.
3.  Dangle swap.  Bring your 25 dangles to the meeting.  If you don't bring them, or send them with a friend, you're out of luck...there's no easy way to include latecomers.
4.  Call Becky Welch if you want a thread or fabric kit for camp.

This is the meeting for Jeanne's cute styrofoam lunch carrier, so come prepared!  Please bring your own extension cords, irons, etc, since we won't have the supplies from Sabana.

And...between the ticket sales at Thimbleweeds and Fay's efforts with Civitan, we've already raised nearly $150 on the raffle quilt by Holly and Kathy L. for the Rio Rancho girl who is hving an organ transplant!

And, below is a note from Barbara Gary:

I Hate to Paper Piece but…
Dear Thimbleweed members. 
It is with great joy that I want to share the fabulous techniques I have learned over the past three years on my journey to become a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor.  On September 18, I will be teaching some of the techniques needed to make one of Brad and Judy Niemeyer’s fascinating quilts. Foundation papers will be provided to make an 18 inch block which can then be used to create a pillow or a customized bag or a wall hanging.
 When you have completed this block I hope that you will be able to fill in the rest of the class title with things like
… I like this method,
… I’m hooked on the precision of this method, or
… I like this method so much I want to make a king size Bali Wedding Star.
A $5.00 fee will cover the cost of the papers provided for this class. There will be a sign-up sheet and a supply list available for this class beginning August 21 so that I have a count for the patterns. I will need to have my final count by September 4, 2014. If you can’t make the meeting to sign up, please contact me atpicsonfabric@yahoo.com.

 And this note comes from Lynn:
 Hello Thimbleweeders!
Seems like we’re having a very hard time getting our Christmas in July (August – September) quilt raffled off.  Anyway, with the change in our meetings in August, I’d like to postpone food collection once again until September.  So thanks for your patience and come with your bags of food for StoreHouse West in September.  Thanks for your support!
Lynn
