Raffle quilt

Harvest of Quilts is rapidly approaching. The show will be on Friday and Saturday, October 11-12 at the Darke County Fairgrounds. If you wish to enter your quilt, quilts will be accepted at the Fairgrounds on Wednesday, October 9th from 4-7 PM and on Thursday, October 10th from 9-11. In case you haven't seen it, here is the gorgeous, queen-size raffle quilt! One lucky raffle ticket holder will win this! Raffle tickets may still be purchased from Club members. Additionally, raffle tickets can be purchased at Greenville's next "First Fridays" event on October 4th in front of Minuteman Press.
Club news: We had a wonderful meeting on September 17th. There were lots of reminders and final decisions made on Quilt-show related topics. Linda gave a short presentation on preparing ties for Saturday's class, "All Tied Up." Club members decided that the next meeting, just a few days after the show, will be less formal and include a carry-in and fabric "swap" opportunity. So...Club members, for the October 15th meeting, please bring a dish AND THE RECIPE to share. Also bring several 2.5" x WOF strips. The Club will provide plates and forks for the food. (If your dish needs a bowl and/or spoon, please bring those, too!) This is not a full dinner, so finger foods are preferred. The carry-in and fabric "swap" are related. If someone wants the recipe to your dish, they must "pay" you for it with a 2.5" x WOF strip! This will be a fun way to add variety to your fabric stash!

Reminder to Club members: turn in your raffle ticket money as soon as possible.
