If you have a small quilt (approximately 30" x 30") that we can hang at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center, please share! That would be snowmen quilts, Christmas tree quilts, Santa quilts...anything that says, "Christmas in Prescott"--that's what we're looking for!
Please bring your Christmas quilts to the November 17 meeting. They'll be going up probably the last week of November.
Quilt Camp Spring 2015:
It's time to start thinking about our 3rd Spring Quilt Camp! We've reserved the same space at United Christian Youth Camp this year for March 24th through March 27th. The fee will be $225.00, which covers 4 days, 3 nights and 10 meals. New this year, the cabins have been renovated and the camp will be supplying linens. We’ll have room for 25 campers. If you are interested in attending another fun-filled quilt camp please get your non-refundable deposit of $50.00 to Suzy or Patti as soon as possible. The balance is due at the March meeting. The registration form is on the website and we will have forms at the meeting.

Photos for the Website:
When submitting photos to be displayed on the website, please use the landscape orientation (largest size from left to right) when taking your pictures. The portrait orientation (taller rather than wider) does not work in our slideshows. The webmaster appreciates your help with this!
All members have the oppotunity to take home the Accuquilt fabric cutter for personal use. We have many dies available and the full list is posted under Forms/Links then click on MTQG Forms. Check out usage is for a maximum of one week, or more if there is no one on the wait list. Sign up each month during the break or contact Sam Logan.
National Quilt Museum:
We have 2 tickets for FREE entry to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. Please see Lapreil Schwann if you would like to have them for your next trip there. They expire March 1st, 2015.
Listing of MTQG officers from previous years is available Here.
December 15 - Christmas Luncheon:
The Knotty Ladies mini group invites you to our December 15th Christmas Luncheon, bringing a Mexican theme of “Feliz Navidad.” We do need a couple more volunteers to help with cleanup and we will be sending out emails to our table hostesses with instructions on what to furnish for their tables. As a reminder, luncheon attendees may bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Yavapai County Food Bank. Or, in the spirit of giving, you may bring in a $10 gift card from any merchant of your choice (.e. Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, grocery stores, etc.) These will be presented to Stepping Stones. If you have any questions, see Linda Marley. If you are not able to bring whatever you signed up for, please find someone to take your place.
April 21 - Fun Day is coming!
The MTQG Board is making plan for our fourth bi-annual Fun Day scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2015. This is a special program hosted by the board which selects a pattern, and purchases and pre-cuts the fabric for each participate based on her chosen fabric theme or style. Then, on the day of the class, she just brings her sewing machine and hopefully goes home with a completed quilt top. Board members traditionally even provide ironing services. Until that day, the project is a mystery. For now, those considering taking part are being asked for their input on possible fabric styles or themes they would like to see offered. If you’d like to make a suggestion, or have any questions, see Linda Marley. Sign-up for Fun Day will begin in January 2015 and is limited to 20 members. The class fee will just cover the cost of all the fabric for the complete quilt top.
More information on upcoming programs for 2014-2015 may be found on the Programs page.
There will be no ECHOS programs in December.
Techniques of Hand Applique and Hand Quilting to be taught by Marcia McMullen. Sign-up sheets will be at the ECHOS desk at the November meeting.
