Hello Everyone,
What a great start to Over The Mountain 2018! Our Programs committee presented the Calendar Program and talked about the many activities coming up for us this year. We have three new  members and one of them even jumped in to take the Secretary post. Thanks for joining us. I'm excited to see our guild growing and animated while talking with new and continuing friends. We hope this will be fun filled year. Only a little Show & Tell this time but I'm sure more wonderful creations will grace our stage in future months. May your 2018 be full of fun and creative endeavors. Happy Stitching, Holly P

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for a full and fun 2017 of Quilting learning and creating. At our December meeting we acknowledged and thanked our 2017 volunteer chairwomen and active members. The lovely folded fabric Scandinavian ornament was fun and easy once we got the weaving idea going. Please check the Fun Times tab as well as the current Show & Tell to see the efforts of some of our members. A new program for our 2018 activities began with some extra preparation for the January meeting. Upcoming Meetings will give you the most current information I have to share. Dues are due at the beginning of the January meeting if you still need to join for 2018. Cost is $15 plus $3 per meeting Or $51 for the year. I hope to see all you continuing and any new members at the next meeting.
Happy Stitching, Holly

Lots of great Show & Tell from the November 14th meeting. Our last meeting of the calendar year is December 12. We'll have a Pot Luck Lunch so bring your favorite dish to share. A fun craft project will be presented and it will be good to pay your 2018 dues and be ready for an activity packed 2018 with Over The Mountain Quilters.

Hello Everyone,
August's meeting was fun and busy. Kathryn F did a great job introducing us to our new Flying Geese rulers to make our last row as perfect as possible. We had fun admiring the Show & Tell projects  and Shelly's beach theme table was full of goodies. Our members are fun and generous. Thanks Ladies! Later on, Cindy and Carol A presented us with the supplies for a great travel thread/scrap catcher. It only had one seam to sew by machine and the rest is hand work but still and easy and useful project. Thanks! We met a new guest who quickly became a new member. Tanya M we are happy to have you join us.  See you all at the 19th anniversary Potluck on September 12! Until then ...
Happy Stitching, Holly

Hello Everyone,
We had a productive meeting July 11, 2017. Our theme of the day was Pies and Christmas in July. Thank you to each of you that contributed the yummy sweets! I hope those selling a few items got a few dollars to share and shop with themselves.  Susannah presented an calming lesson on the myriad of pieces and how they go together for the Blanket Strip Row of our Row, Row, Row Your Quilt. Photos are on the "Other Fun and News" tab. "Show and Tell" gave us some impressive finishes and fun ideas.  Our next meeting in August will be the last of the rows - Flying Geese presented by Kathryn F. Our September meeting is the over The Mountain Quilters 19th Anniversary Party. We would like to have at least 8 short demos 10-15 minutes in length for this event. If you have some interesting tip or easy project you would like to share, Please contact our President, Sandra P to get your name on the list. We would love to see whatever you would like to share.
Happy Stitching, Holly P
