Announcements!

Our guild has gone digital! Until further notice, our monthly meetings will be held on zoom. All members with an email address will receive an invitation to sign into the meeting through the groups io email group. All guild activities are now listed on the guild calendar. Members can find it on the Member’s only page. If you need help navigating the website and finding the calendar, click here for a pdf with detailed directions.

There are many other activities available on zoom. Check out this list:

Beginner’s Luck – This minigroup continues to meet via Zoom on the 1st Tuesday afternoon each month. We are now focusing on small skills to add interest to our quilts.  Upcoming in 2020 is a “housing” project.  Each month the hostess will present a “house” block.  This is not a block exchange, but a year long project.  We’ll see that “there is no place like home”.

Fun Sew Days also continue with Zoom. These are held the first Saturday of each month and are open to all guild members and the hours are generally from 9:30 a.m. 3:00 p.m. However, to avoid confusion, we do try to limit the group to about 12 people.  Just think – sewing with friends and no need to haul a machine, sewing supplies, ruler, iron or project!  Some people just do hand work during the session also. The next dates are March 6 and April 3, 2021.  I will send out reminders each month, but please contact Chris Williams (cwwill@earthlink.net) if you are interested in joining in the fun or have questions.

Bits Members Afternoon Zoom – This group meets every 2 weeks on THURSDAY AFTERNOON from 1:00 – 3:00. The group chose to have a Sew Day during their Zoom meetings. There are currently 12 members, but not everyone comes to each gathering so I think we could have more people in the group. The next meetings are scheduled for March 4, March 18 and April 1, 2021.   If you are interested in joining this group or have questions, contact Chris Williams (cwwill@earthlink.net)

Bits Members Evening Zoom – This group recently voted to have zoom meetings every other week on THURSDAY EVENING from 7:00 – 9:00. The group chose to have just a social meeting with time to chat, share projects, ask questions and just catch up on news of the Guild and each other.  The next meetings are scheduled for  March 3, March 17 and March 31, 2021.   There is room for several more members in this Zoom group so if you are interested or have questions, contact Chris Williams (cwwill@earthlink.net)
