It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!

In just a few days, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving and then it’s full swing into the Holiday Season. The KCMQG will have it’s December Meeting and Holiday Party on Thursday, December 14. It will be a fun filled evening of food, frivolity and FaBrIc, of course. Please plan to join us. Click on the Calendar link above for full details on time and place. 

In order to fully enjoy the evening, please bring a sweet or savory snack item to share. The guild will provide the beverages for this event. 

You’ll also want to grab ONE YARD of a favorite fabric and bring it, along with a small pair of scissors, to the evening’s festivities. We’ve got a plan brewing which is sure to end in a stack of fabric and a challenge to each of us. Don’t forget to choose a FAVORITE fabric. You’ll end up with a piece of it so make sure it’s something you like... 
Also, we’re offering the opportunity to participate in a Block Lotto. 
Just make some tree blocks by following the tutorial for Diary of a Quilter’s Tree Blocks
Bring one or as many as you want. 
For every block you bring, you’ll get a ticket and we’ll do a 
drawing for the WHOLE SET of blocks at the end of the evening. 
The blocks should be trimmed to 7.5” x 9.5”. If you increase the size of your starting square by 1/2 an inch it will leave you a little more wiggle room in your sewing and trimming options. 
If we have more than 64 blocks we will split them into sets and have multiple winners. 
SEW fun, don’t you think?

Melissa Averinos is Coming Back to the KCMQG!

It's rare that we able to welcome back a nationally renowned and talented friend like Melissa Averinos twice in such a short period of time. Last year, Melissa came and spent a weekend with our members. It was a much anticipated weekend and the members who were able to spend time with Melissa are STILL talking about what a great time they had and how much they enjoyed her visit. As fate would have it, Melissa is going to be back in the KC area and we were able to schedule another weekend with her for August 4th and 5th.

August 4th will be an all day class dedicating to Making Cat Faces!

August 5th is dedicated to Making Faces (People Faces, that is)
(These are actual faces made by KCMQG members last year in Melissa's Class!)
