New Member Group Meetings resumed on Monday, February 3rd at the Granite Dells Club House in Prescott after taking December and January off. We had a great turnout for the Stack and Whack demonstration from
Diana Ramsey. The group was very surprised to see the beautiful quilts made
using this technique and to understand how to choose the best fabric patterns. Great job Diana!! New Members also learned how to navigate
the Mountain Top Quilters Guild website with a demonstration using the video equipment and TV at the facility. This made it easy to show how user-friendly our website is so members can find information at home. Our next meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 2nd from 1-3pm. Topic will be “How to use the AccuQuilt Go! Cutter. We will demonstrate how to use the AccuQuilt Go!
Cutter and templates and how to check it out for home use. A formal invitation will go out to New Members in the next 2 weeks.
Our November New Member Group Meeting took place on the 4th at the Granite Dells Club House in Prescott. Topic of the meeting was “A Holiday celebration”. Thirteen new members attended Diana Ramsey’s demonstration for Christmas ornaments made with fabric. She brought sample packs complete with fabric, pins and styrofoam balls so members had a chance to try their skills. Members also brought items to share with the group; including the
cutest bags made from placemats, small wall hangings, aprons and towels, thread catchers, Christmas quilts, mug rugs and an exquisite embroidered wall hanging.
