Next Meeting

Hello Ladies,
It's time for our first February Thimbleweeds meeting!
We are having UFO day, so bring a project and your lunch and plan to stay.
And, Block of the month sign up. This is a new year!.
Find out how we did with $$$ from the AQS show! Celebration treat too!

Kathy will have the quilt frame at both February meetings if anyone wants to use it to photograph quilts for the Fiber Arts Fiesta.  Deadline for submission is 3/2/15.

Please put April 19th on your calendar...that's the day we'll be having our outdoor quilt show this year.

And, see below for a chance to visit Socorro and see a small quilt show:

On the event of the 400th anniversary of San Miguel Mission and the 125th anniversary of New Mexico Tech, a group of volunteers from the Fiber Arts Guild of Socorro County have collected a wide variety of quilts from members of the community.  This retrospective of quilts from the 1840s to the present day will be on display in the upstairs lobby of the Macey Center, 801 Leroy Place, on the campus of NM Tech in Socorro from February 4th until March 3rd.  Viewing hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday during that four week period.
Please go and share in this display of the wonderfully diverse heritage of the community's textiles.
Directions to the Macey Center are available on line or on your GPS.
NOTE:  The sand hill cranes and snow geese should still be in residence at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge about 15 miles south of Socorro.  You could see the show and then go down and view the cranes.  A twofer!
