Sunday September 20 at Antiques on the Square we had great fun and earned $260. If you plan to go to the Cottonwood show, "A Covey of Quilts," on October 16 & 17 we could use help with ticket sales on Friday and Saturday from 3 to 5. Let me know if you are planning to be there and have time to help. If you haven’t already heard our quilt will be on the cover of the Quilt Shop Navigator, southwest area. I have seen a proof of the cover and it’s amazing. Other shows we have confirmed are not until after the New Year, Wickenburg in January, Quartzsite in February and still waiting on confirmation but the AQS show in February is very likely. Remember to pick up your 12 tickets for $10 at the next meeting. To simplify the accounting we are asking you to pick up and pay for the tickets. Then you can sell them or if you’re like me put your name on them. If you know of any events where you think our quilt could be displayed and tickets sold please let us know. Thanks in advance for your help.
Our other confirmed events are:
October 16 & 17, A Covey of Quilts, Cottonwood Quilt Show
January 29 & 30, Wickenburg Quilt Show
February 3 & 4, Quartzsite Quilters Show
Please check the schedule at the meeting and sign up for a shift or two. In the past each member was asked to sell 12 tickets for $10.

Listing of MTQG officers from previous years is available Here.
New member, Martie Winkleman, will present “My Journey
in Wearable Art.” She recently moved from California. She has created ensembles for the prestigious invitational Fairfield
Fashion Show and her work has also been displayed at the
San Diego Quilt Show as guest fashion artist.
Helen Robinson of Mesa, AZ will present a lecture and trunk show entitled “Sew Kind of Wonderful.” Helen taught herself to quilt from from the Quilter’s Complete Guide by Fons and Porter in 1997 when she wanted to offer an after-school sewing class to Jr. High students and needed an affordable teacher :-) The first quilt block Helen sewed was a Log Cabin Block, and she was hooked on the entire process! Learn more about Helen and combining straight and curved pieces at her website.
More information on upcoming programs for 2015 may be found on the Programs page.
Sam Logan will again teach the class making a small purse. This is a good item for a Christmas gift. If you have already signed up for this class and find that you cannot attend, PLEASE phone Sam so that she can fill your spot from the waiting list.
Iris Lacey will present a class in Stack and Slash Technique for making quilted stars. Iris will have a list of instructions and quilting needs for you when you sign up at the ECHOS' desk.
See Tips and How-To Information Here
Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.
