Common Threads Quilt Guild 

NEXT MEETING – Wed, June 24, 2015, 5:00 PM

Our next meeting will be held at Quilt Beginnings North.  It is a special trunk show with Alex AndersonPlease note change of date, time and location!


After the success of last year’s garage sale we have planned another for the August potluck picnic. Time to empty your closets and peak inside those long forgotten bins for fabric and quilt books you have outgrown. You can bring your donations to both May and July meetings. Priced items is appreciated. All sales benefit the guild and go to the general fund.

  • Sue Atkins needs two helpers to set up the garage sale in August.
  • If you are donating books, please bring them early that night. They are too heavy to schlep back & forth.
  • Remember, the items are to be quilt related.
  • Pre-pricing would be lovely if you have an idea of what it should sell for.
  • Please, please, please take home whatever you donated that did not sell.


It is not too late to join the 2015 mystery quilt challenge. The cost is $10.00 which includes the cost of the pattern and prizes. Final reveal will be at the January 2016 meeting.  Prize winners will be voted on by those attending the January meeting. Point-of-contact Kathy Meyers.


The theme of this year’s challenge quilt is stars. Participants are to make a quilt or other item based on this year’s star theme.  It can be one star or many, large or small, pieced or appliqué, by hand or machine!  Whatever you choose, the only requirement is that the project must have a star theme or star block.  They can be any size and finished projects will be revealed at the October meeting.  There will be two categories:  quilts and home dec/other (wall hangings, table runners, bags, etc).  There is a $5.00 fee to participate.  Point-of-contact Betsy or Karen Zimmerman.


The Fall Quilting Retreat will be held on Sept 18-20 at The Inn at Amish Door in Wilmot, OH.  Unfortunately, space is limited to 45 participants on a first-come, first served basis.  $50 will secure your spot with the total cost of the retreat being $165 due in August.  Sign-ups for the Fall retreat will be held at the July guild meeting.
