Roselind Cole opened the Silver Threads Quilt Guild October monthly meeting as Tammy and Mike Host were vacationing.
Members were brought up-to-date on the fancy pot holder class and the fidget mat class; several members enjoyed making them.
The NICU at Jackson General Hospital asked if the club members would be interested in sewing some preemie and newborn blankets. They also could use some isolate covers. It was suggested to make some in holiday patterns. This is a voluntary project and one that will be fun participating in.
Roselind asked the Longarm Quilters for suggestions on how to prepare a quilt top for the quilter. There are a half a dozen members with Longarm quilt machines. They had a variety of suggestions; it was very informative. It was suggested that they get together and print a pamphlet with this information in to for members to refer to.
In November, the Strip Quilt Contest will be judged, with a cash prize going to the winner.
Becky Scates, a representative from Habitat for Humanity, joined members Ruby Heatly and Mary Towater as she accepted the patchwork quilt that members donated for Habitat’s fundraising gala. Silver Threads is proud to support Habitat for Humanity.
Silver Threads Quilt Guild meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. The meeting is in the quilt room at the Carroll County Complex on High Street in Huntingdon. For more information, call Jean at 731-415-7889 of Tammy at 731-694-0602.
