Community Service Project - T-Shirt Quilts for Big Brother/Big Sister

 Rich Carroll of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Harrisburg has reached out to the Guild looking for some assistance with a quilt project.  They have a large number of T-shirts for an event that was cancelled due to COVID that they would like to have sewn into quilts to distribute to their Littles or family members as the need arises.  Janice Kennedy is looking for any groups or individuals who would be interested in working with Rich on this.  If you are interested in participating, contact Janice for details.

Wednesday Daytime Meeting 1-3 PM

Both meetings fall in the same week again this month!  The Wednesday meeting is still an in-person meeting at the Clubhouse at 3296 Shellers Bend.  Again, use the map in the newsletter to help you find the location.  Google Maps will only take you as far as the entrance.  (It's a condo community, so one address plus the unit designation like in an apartment complex.)

Judy Ray’s presentation last month was so interesting, helpful, entertaining, and chock-full of important bits that we asked her to finish her session in December. Please bring anything you made from her first session for Show and Tell.

December 14th Meeting Reminder

This meeting will be by Zoom at 7 PM.  Watch your email for the links.

Brita Nelson Zoom presentation “Now you see it, now you don’t - The Magic of Disappearing Blocks"

From her website:
“Learn about the magic and beauty of disappearing blocks with this interactive online lecture, demo and trunk show. Using 3 cameras, one on me and the quilts, one pointing straight down at the cutting mat, and one close-up on the quilts, I will be able to show you how easy it is to turn simple blocks into beautiful complex patterns. Using the Zoom format you will be able to ask questions for me to answer during the presentation. I will also show you how different block designs can be enhanced by color choices or slight modifications to make even more interesting full quilts.”

There will be no regular business meeting or Show & Tell this month.

Zoom practice and refresher

 All you need to do to prepare to Zoom is download and install the Zoom app. At the meeting time, hit the link we send to you, sit back, and talk to us.

If you prefer not downloading anything, you can go to Zoom and click on the “Join meeting” tab. If you do this, you’ll need the meeting ID and passcode listed for each meeting.

These practice sessions will be fun and informal. If you want to take pictures of your latest quilts for Show and Tell, we will work out how to share. We played with backgrounds, funny faces, reactions, and other buttons on the Zoom screens. We’ll laugh together and explore this ubiquitous technology.

If you are uncomfortable Zooming on your computer or phone, perhaps you can phone a friend and Zoom together. Contact one of your board members for more help.

You don’t want to miss our winter meetings.

We have scheduled 2 Zoom practice sessions:
