Good Evening Ladies,

The Thimbleweeds meeting is this week, and there is a lot going on!

Elizabeth Dawson is teaching her notepad cover so come prepared.
You need to bring: 8 1/2"X11 fabrics for cover, inner  cover pocket,  batting and fusible interfacing.

 Your dangles are due!  Please give them to Colleen.  You'll get a set of dangles back at the next meeting.

We will still be selling tickets on Hannah's quilt, so bring your pennies.

There are still a couple of spots for the retreat, so if you want to go, bring your checkbook and Barbara and Suzie will get you all signed up.  If you signed up and made a partial payment, the balance is due Thursday.

Retreat & Next Meeting

Hold on Ladies,
There is a lot to this e mail, lots going on.  This is out UFO week...so bring something to work on and plan to stay. We'll be taking sign ups for the retreat!! 

The Enchanted Vista Iris Society had many fine iris left over from our sale.  Barbara and Robin will be selling these at the meeting. They range in price from 1.00 to 4.00 ea. We do want to sell these and Robin is willing to make a deal for the bigger sales. This is a fine time to plant them in order for them to establish their roots for beautiful blooms next spring."

Diane made a pinterest board with a lot of adorable slipper patterns that you could use for the retreat swap:

Ann Driscoll will be demonstrating how to make a 2 ft. by 4 ft. board that will fit over your own ironing board that is great for ironing large pieces of fabric.  This will only take about 10 minutes and I will have the directions to hand out
And a reminder about the retreat:
Thought I'd give you a little update about the upcoming retreat at Hummingbird Music Camp in the Jemez Mountains, September 18-20. We will be taking sign ups at the first August meeting.  The cost this year is $120 plus $5 if you want to do the night owl (which you do!)  If you are taking Barbara Gary's class it's $10 more for the papers.
We will be swapping handmade slippers.  Make them in the size you wear and you'll swap with another person your same size.  I've attached a list of links to free slipper patterns.  Trust me, you will enjoy handmade slippers. Bring them in a shoe box.
The class choices are Barbara's Judy Niemyer quilt, Sue Harris' DNA quilt and UFO.
We will begin classes at noon on Friday, you can arrive at camp after 10 am.  Please no early birds, camp will not be ready for us. Bring your lunch.
