2012 CMQ Meetings
||Yo-In: Rita Hertzberger and Pati Shambaugh - A tutorial of various methods of making yo-yo's. You are encouraged to bring your yo-yo projects for show & tell.
||Valentine's Day Theme Fabric Exchange. With this theme in mind, we would like you to share your quilts with a love story. As always bring any projects to show & tell.
||Our guest speakers are mother and daughter Mary Montgomery and Kim Shearrow. They were featured last summer at Galleria Evangelia in Clintonville.
||We are having Ruth and Rick Grihalva from Forever in Stitches Quilt Shop in Bluffton, Ohio. Ruth is the brains behind Raggedy Ruth Designs (patterns) and The Perfect Corner Ruler. I have asked her to talk about from concept to market with developing the ruler along with a demo of the product.
||This will be our special Sew-In for the Heinzerling Foundation to make the custom-made quilts that they use for their residents' care. Nancy Wilke, Linda Siebe and Rebecca Keylor are coordinating.
|| Terri Brown from The Laughing Ewe in Canal Winchester, Ohio, will be our guest. She is new to the central Ohio's shop-hop area and would like to let you know about her shop and see what it is all about. The shop is full of Civil War reproduction fabrics, wools, and rug hooking supplies. You may wish to include your own projects that reflect her style in your "Bring & Brag" this month.
||6:30 p.m. - Annual Picnic Potluck will be at the Antrim Shelter House at Heritage Park in Westerville (60 N. Cleveland Ave.). Sign-up sheet at the June meeting so you can let us know the dish/category you wish to bring. If you are undecided you can consult the category count posted in the newsletter right before the Picnic. A light program will take the place of Quilt-O this year: A review of Ireland's National Quilt Show as seen through the eyes of CMQ members who attended.
||Gay Dell-Howard and Pati Shambaugh will present an overview of Crazy Quilts. It will be the end of the May Proms and June Brides. During this program we will have a "Formal Rip-off." If you made a family member a formal or bridal gown, bring the fabric scraps or the "bridesmaids gown from hell" (if it is still hanging around). We will rip them up and trade fabrics for the new block challenge. If you don't have gowns you want to cut up, a quick trip to the thrift store is an inexpensive outlet. Remember: taffetas, velvets, and silks (maybe a tie)... "Oh my!"
||(Date to be confirmed later) - Holiday Potluck 6:30 p.m.
In the event of a meeting cancellation
due to inclement weather, members will receive an e-mail or a
