Christmas In July
It's Christmas in July!
It's never too early to start planning your gift-giving, especially when making a home-made Christmas! So, let's get started early this year - for our July Meeting, please bring a few items for Show & Tell that might be good gifts, such as a table runner, a fabric bowl, a purse or tote bag - anything you would love to give or receive as a holiday gift.
And, what kind of holiday get-together would it be without fun and games? We'll be playing a few games, and the price to play may be anything from a fat quarter to a charm square or a jelly roll strip. So be sure to bring your fabric (Christmas prints, reds, greens and whites) and get ready to play!
I'd also like to do a pattern exchange. If you have a pattern (purchased - not a photocopy or magazine excerpt) you've already used and are willing to part with, please bring it to the meeting. We'll sign a list and let everyone that participates go up in order to select a new pattern. Please limit to small item patterns, such as table runners or totes - not quilt patterns.
Don’t have pre-cut Christmas fabric? Not a problem! Just bring a few half-yard pieces, and we'll have a cutting station set up. That way you can choose to cur your fabric to work for the games you want to play!
Christmas Stocking Challenge

Join Us for all our Activities
Monthly Meeting - Each monthly meeting we have an opportunity to visit with one another, share a tasty snack, go over a little business and share our quilts with one another. We often have a guest speaker or a Spotlight to enhance our knowledge of the quilting arts. Our guild is all about education, and we strive to use every opportunity to present more information to inspire our members and visitors to create more beautiful projects.
The meeting is normally held the First Tuesday of the month, at the Hale Mahaolu Elima Community Center. For directions and a map, click here.
Sew Day - Sew Days are an opportunity to spend the day away from home with other quilters, working on a project while visiting with one another. From time to time, basic technique classes at little or no cost will also be offered. Check the Challenges for more information.
On the Third Saturday of every month, we normally have a Sew Day from 9:00 - 4:00, at the Hale Mahaolu Elima Community Center. For directions and a map, click here
Bees & Small Groups - There are several small groups. Find one to your liking, and join them. Check their pages for more information.
