February Newsletter 2012

 ATTENTION!  Due to the road construction on McCulloch Blvd, please
note that the only entrance to the parking lot from McCulloch Blvd for
Gabby’s Diner has been temporarily moved to the very north end of the
parking lot.  The access from the rear for that block of businesses is
the same.
 Now that that is done - Happy Valentines Day!  Hope everyone had fun
at the LUV Quilt worknight at the January meeting.  I look forward to
seeing lots of finished LUV quilts in the next few months, either
using that Fat Quarter Breeze pattern, or any other pattern that you
so wish to use.
Please remember to renew your PWQ membership at the Feb. meeting.
Dues are $25.00 per year.  Guests are always welcome for a $3.00 fee.
We welcome new members at any time.
We still need volunteers for some of the committees and for
Block-of-the Month presentations.  Please consider helping out on one
of the committees.
 The February Program is “Out of the Box.”  This is a hands on night
which we hope will stimulate your creative juices.  You will need to
bring to the meeting a small baggie of black & white fabric scraps or
strips.  You do not need big pieces of fabric.  Only black on white
prints or white on black prints please.  Your scraps will be added to
all other scraps brought that night for the evenings project, so there
is no guarantee you will get to use the scraps that you brought, so
don’t bring anything that you are unwilling to part with.  Also bring
scissors to cut with, a glue stick, a writing implement (black pen or
pencil) and a small package of wet-wipes.
 Other things you may want to bring to the Feb. 6th meeting:
 _____ In House raffle funds
 _____ Name tag
 _____ Completed 3-D flying geese BOM in blues & yellow
 _____ 3-D flying geese BOM for Wounded Warriors- in red, white & blue
 _____ Funds for Fons & Porter subscription ($20.00) magazine
subscription sign-up ends March 31, 2012
 _____ Funds for a PWQ travel mug ($5) or pin ($3) or writing pen ($2)
 _____ Fat quarter for fat quarter drawing - any color with hearts on it.
 _____ Any completed LUV quilt or other quilt for Sew N Share
 _____ Donation pillow cases.
 _____ your own beverage (or snack if you need one.)
 We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
