Guild Announcements

Becca wows with her Rainbow Plus Quilt made from Kaffe Fassett shot cotton
The year is off to a bang!! We had a great January meeting with members and visitors showing off their skills.  There is so much going on I am going to just hit some of the highlights below.  If you need more information about any of our activities you can check our our guild flickr page or contact

Where: St. Martin's Episcopal Church Room 210 (same room as our regular meetings)
Time: 3pm-9pm come and go as you need to
Cost: $5 to help cover the charge for using the room

Michael Miller Challenge (MQG)

Patty's challenge quilt!
Our guild is participating again in the Modern Quilt Guild's fabric challenge.  This time we received bundles from Madrona Road by Violet Craft for Michael Miller Fabrics. The object of the challenge is to create something lovely using just this line and other solids.  There are two different flickr groups.  One for WIPs and one for finshes!  Make sure to add one photo of your finished project to the finshes group!  This is where Michael Miller Fabrics and Violet Craft will be viewing and selecting. Make it a great photo!  Then bring your work to our February Guild Meeting on the 16th! 

Quilt Con

February 21 - 24 in Austin.  Our guild is a Gold Needle Supporting Guild and we hope to see you there!!  


We repeated our popular WIP/UFO show-n-tell at the January meeting.  Make sure to bring your finishes in for a chance to win prizes!

2013 Retreat 

Our retreat is the first weekend in May at the Deep Woods Retreat Center in Smithville TX (near Bastrop). It includes dinner Friday, light breakfast, lunch & dinner Saturday, and brunch Sunday.  We have this one weekend retreat planned and are looking at adding a second one because of so much interest.  Talk with Frieda if you need a weekend of sewing in the Hill Country.
