Last month: Thank you, Lily Marie Amaru, for presenting a wonderful program in January. We appreciate all that you did in preparing such an inspiring and informative experience for all.

Thursday, February 20 : When the quilting bug bit Mary Moody-Cox in 1990, she immediately knew she wanted to own a quilt shop, design patterns, and teach others all about quilting. From Arizona to Colorado to Hawaii to California, Mary has done all this and more including being a featured artist in Quiltfolk Issue 3 Hawaii. Join us this month in welcoming Mary as she shares her quilting journey along with a wide assortment of her quilts.

Mystery quilt fabric exchange: Oops! What a goof. The fabric exchange was inadvertently overlooked last month, so we will start it this month instead. As a reminder, this year’s fabric exchange is scrappy. We will exchange 8.5″ squares and 11″ squares. They can be all different or there can be duplicates. The two sizes do not have to match. Bring an equal number of 8.5″ and 11″ squares. Suggestion: 6 of each size will make a baby or wheelchair quilt. 12 of each size will make a decent-sized throw. We will exchange at this month’s meeting as well as March. The pattern will be revealed at the March meeting. I promise.

Saturday retreat: Mark your calendar to join us next month on Saturday, March 14 at the Grand Terrace Community Room anytime between 9am and 3pm for an opportunity to sew whatever you want with good company and no extraneous interruptions. There are plenty of tables to go around and plenty of room to spread out. Bring your own food and drink and we will have a great time.

All are welcome.
