  • Opportunity Quilt- A grand total of $1293 was collected from Opportunity Quilt ticket sales! Jeanne Snodgrass of Little Rock, CA won; she purchased the ticket at superbuzzy during the Central Coast Quilt Run with her grandmother in mind. Patrice Lambourne sold the winning ticket — way to go, Patrice! Don’t forget: the winner of the selvage bag will also be revealed. It goes to the person who sold the most Opportunity Quilt tickets.
  • Show and Tell – Bring your block (any size) inspired by the element that you picked: Earth, Air, Fire or Water. Wouldn’t it be fun to put together an entire quilt built from those Element inspired blocks? Every month’s challenge can be found on our Challenges page. And those of you who entered quilt items at the Fair, please be prepared to tell us about your experience! Good? Bad? Making a quilt out of all your ribbons?
  • Philanthropy – Bring your solid, quilting-quality scraps for philanthropy quilts! Any size from 2.5″x2.5″ accepted!
    From Patrice: “We had a great time at our Sew-In on August 22. Fifteen people joined us for part or all day! Plenty of quilt tops got complete — we have kits ready for you to pick up at the meeting, which include the top, batting, backing, and binding. Can’t go wrong with that! If you couldn’t make it to the Sew-In, you still have an opportunity to help.”
  • Snacks – If you signed up to bring snacks, our Hospitality Chair Tisha will email you separately.
  • Raffle – Don’t forget to bring extra bucks for our always-fabulous raffle. Got something to donate? Adele F and Gladys R are our Raffle Chairs.
