Organizing!
Our September meeting will feature examples of organizational strategies used by our own guild members. If you have a creative storage solution or idea, please share it with us! You can bring in an example to present at our meeting on September 12th. If you are bringing an example, please be prepared to show and tell.

OR
You can e-mail pictures of your organization strategies and those will be made into a slide show. If you are providing pictures, either be prepared to tell the guild about your idea or write a short blurb that explains the picture. Pictures should be e-mailed to Marian Stimson at marian.stimson@gmail.com no later than Thursday September 5th.
 
Alternatively, if you have a problem area in your sewing area you could share a picture of that and our guild members might share some strategies to help your space.
 
This meeting’s success is dependent on Guild Participation so please help contribute to make it an educational and enjoyable evening. All storage and organization ideas (or “problems”) are welcome to help expand and enliven our guild’s discussion.

Evolution of a Quilt (EQ8)
Come into the computer age and use your computer screen as a virtual design wall. Electric Quilt is the ultimate video game for quilters.  No more making up fabric squares, only to find they aren’t “working”. Play with color, design and pattern ideas. Rotate or mirror blocks, recolor, add sashing, draw original designs, figure yardage, create borders (with the corners automatically calculated), generate accurate patterns and more with the click of a mouse. Most of the commands are very similar to standard word processing tools and your smart phone. Traditional, modern and art quilts will be discussed. For those not interested in computer design, Barb will show lots of quilts on the screen and in person to keep you entertained.  She will also talk about creating a successful quilt design. Visit http://www.ElectricQuilt.com to see details on how this design program can change your quilting life. There are lots of tutorials & projects to explore. Facebook has several EQ related chats to follow to give you an idea of what this amazing program can do. Come to see it in action. It comes in a PC and Mac version so everyone can join in the fun. Presented by Barb Gardner.
