2. BOOKS AND THREADS AND STITCHES, OH MY!
Interpreting a book to a quilt – Choose a book that you have enjoyed and create a quilt based on some aspect of the book. The quilt can be whatever size it needs to be. You may use any methods, patterns, fabrics, materials you choose. This can be done individually or in groups. Finished quilts: each quilter or subgroup may decide what to do with the finished project quilts. You may: keep them, give them away, donate them to Na Lima, submit them for the June Auction, save them for a show—you decide.
3. TRICKS AND TREATS
Compile a Resource List to be shared with Guild Members – This group will do research to gather resources and publish a detailed list of the best resources on-line and locally for fabric, notions, gadgets, coupons, deals, repair service, etc. The final list will be attached to our website and/or printed to be shared with members.
