NEXT MEETING – Tue, May 24, 2016, 7pm

Our May speaker is Trish Preston, a local craftsman, whose website and business are named after her twins – Two Peas in a Pod Designs.  She lives in the country around Columbus and is mostly known for her scrappy and colorful quilting creations, patterns and designs for unique items.  She should be lots of fun and entertaining, come and enjoy her presentation.

Save the dates!

The Common Threads Biennial Quilt Show will be September 20, 2016 from 6:30-8:30pm at Mifflin Presbyterian Church in Gahanna. It will include a judged show, quilt raffle, basket raffle, and a new highlight for 2016 – a featured quilter from our guild showing off the best of their best.
I know what you’re thinking. “Oh wow, what should I be doing to get ready?” Here’s everything you need to know.

  • Put the date on your calendar.
  • Start to plan on your quilt entries now. There will be a category for every size and technique, including totes and other three-dimensional entries. You can enter up to three pieces at $5.00 per entry. Note: although entering quilts in the show that have been at Show and Tell earlier in the year is not banned, the show is a lot more fun when the attendees haven’t seem most of the quilts before.
  • Think about how you’d like to volunteer: judging, set-up, tear down, raffle baskets, snacks, etc. Karla Zadnik will circulate volunteer sign-up sheets or email her to volunteer.

Let’s make it our best show ever!
