Hello Everyone,
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. 
Happy Stitching, Holly P

Hello Everyone,
Photos from today's Show&Tell are posted. Congratulations to Jacki A! She won the sewing machine that the Community Service committee offered. Each quilt turned in to community service received a ticket in the drawing. Great work everyone. Thank you to Eileen S and Bev R. for doing such a great job organizing and motivating for our community service quilts.

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.

Hello Everyone,
Our May 9th meeting was busy and productive. There were 27 of our 33 members signed in. Many of them got going on the 18 Log Cabin Blocks that are needed for the big border. We'll set those and finish the border at a meeting later in the year. There were many pretty show and tell quilts and projects and lots of Community Service Quilts turned in. See the show and tell page and the Community Service Page for pictures of these wonderful creations.  We received a thank you note and photos from the group to which we donated the school bags. Scroll further down the Community Service page to see those. I hope you all have a great month sewing. Maybe I'll see you at the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta!
