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.

December 15 - Christmas Luncheon:
All MTQG members are welcome to fiesta at the Feliz Navidad Christmas Luncheon taking place at this month’s regular meeting, hosted by the Knotty Ladies. Many thanks to all who have volunteered to help and to bring food. Donations will be accepted of non-perishable items for Yavapai Food Bank or gift cards for Stepping Stones in Prescott Valley. To add to the fiesta, we encourage you to bring a special Christmas or Fiesta style quilt to show. If you don’t remember what you signed up for, contact Linda Marley. Finally, the guild needs a small group of 3 to 5 friends to begin planning the spring luncheon on June 15, 2015. Think of it as getting to throw a party without having to pay the bill. It really is a lot of fun!
April 21 - Fun Day is coming!
MTQG’s fourth biennial Fun Day is all about the fun of fabric and getting to piece a quilt top in a day. For just $60 the board will select (based on your input) and pre-cut all the 5 yards of new fabric for your fun-filled day of sewing. You won’t know the pattern ahead of time, but you will go home with a 60x70 inch quilt top! And because quilting is so much about the fabric, we’re opening the list of possibilities from which participants can choose. Consider selecting from the following fabric designers: Kaffe Fassett, Laurel Birch, Jo Morton, or Paula Nadelstern. Or how about one of these themes: batiks, birds, chickens, florals, oriental, patriotic, or western. Because color is so very important, your input will certainly be considered. You might even want to go with something like black and white and _______? The class is limited to 20 participants and sign-ups will begin in January. See the program chairs Sandie Allen and Lois Fox, or any MTQG board member.
