The Longarm Guild will be meeting next Wednesday, June 5 at 10:00am in the Quilted Joy showroom.

Over the last year we’ve had lots of discussion in guild about how quilts are judged for competition. Pam has volunteered to give a presentation about what the quilt judges are looking for when they’re inspecting your quilts. Pam has not only worked with the Kentucky State Fair in the textiles category for many years, but has also judged for countless competitions. With the Kentucky State Fair only a few months away, Pam’s insights will be so helpful!

Bring an unfinished top for the “How would you quilt this” segment. Get input from others on how to tackle a top and your latest quilts for show and tell.

Don’t forget your finished quilts for the UFO challenge! What’s a UFO? It’s an UnFinished Object, so all those quilts hiding in a closet just waiting to be quilted. If you bring a recently finished quilt (quilted and bound, label preferred but not required) for show and tell, we’ll add your name to the drawing. At the end of each meeting we’ll draw one name. The lucky winner will receive two small cones of Glide thread! We’ll save all the names and at the end of the year we’ll have a grand prize drawing. The more quilts you finish this year, the better your chances are of winning!
