March Guild Rummage Sale – Book Sale Table

Our next in person meeting is March 1st and will be our Annual Rummage Sale (see upcoming events for details).  Along with the members’ sales tables, the guild will be having a book sale table.

How you can help:

  1. Clear out your craft books, (quilting, knitting, crocheting etc) and bring them to the March meeting to donate to the sale table.
  2. Invite your quilting friends to the meeting (no guest fee!) to enjoy shopping the book sale and members’ tables.
  3. Enjoy some new books for yourself (prices will be $3 for one, $5 for two, $10 for six) at bargain prices.

All proceeds from the book sale will go to the guild and any leftover books will be kept and brought to Rafflemania. Contact programs@nlcqg.org with any questions or to reserve your table.

Dear Jane Group

Interested in completing a Dear Jane quilt? This group meets monthly to look at everyone’s progress, discuss options on how to sew the blocks, and to give encouragement. Free to join at any time.   Any questions? Email dearjane@nlcqg.org.

 

Post Card Exchange

During our zoom meeting months of January and February, our guild will be sponsoring a quilted postcard exchange. It’s not complicated, sign up and you’ll receive an email at the end of December with your January partner. Send your partner a quilted postcard at any time during January and they’ll send you one in return! At the end of January, you’ll receive an email indicating your February partner and you’ll just repeat the process. Easy peasy!

Want to see the postcards exchanged by our guild members during 2020 and 2021?  Click here: postcard photos

Ready to sign up? Just send an email to: postcard@nlcqg.org. There will also be a sign-up sheet at our December meeting.

NLCQG November Meeting Location Change

The Antioch Township Center will be accommodating voting in November and we are unable to have our meeting there.  Instead, we will be meeting at the:
Antioch Senior Center
817 Holbek Dr.
Antioch, IL 60002
The meeting date and times stay the same: November 2nd
7:00 – 9:00 (doors open at 6:00)

Program Changes for October & November

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the programs for our next two guild meetings will be flip-flopping.  Our Quilts of Valor presentation will now be held in November and our schoolhouse program will be this week.
Tables will be set up around the room and attendees will be able to rotate from demonstration to demonstration.  Schoolhouse has always been a highlight. Join us as we learn new techniques from our fellow members.

This year, for our opportunity quilt, we are offering “Nature’s Splendor!” a beautiful quilt made by our talented members. Nature’s Splendor! is 79” square and an original pattern designed and pieced by our members.  The design encompasses two popular blocks, the nine patch and the square-in-a-square, with green, purple and gold fabrics showcasing the beauty of nature’s flowers, vines and leaves.  It has been beautifully quilted by one of our members on her long arm machine.
