STASH TIP of the MONTH
If you have so much fabric to use, you will miss out when there are new fabric patterns to try. To use your stash, don’t plan one fabric as your “starter.” Grab randomly from your stash and use 2 – 3 each time.

WAYNE COUNTY FAIR
The Wayne County Fair is fast approaching! Tree City (in the guise of Mabel Stocker) has asked for 2 demonstration times during the week. Each time slot will be one and one half hour long (1 ½). Mabel would like 3, 30 minute demonstrations for each of the time slots. PLEASE consider giving a demonstration at the Fair…it is fun and does not have to be anything complicated. Let Mabel know if you have an idea or know that you would like to volunteer. This is such a great opportunity to promote the guild and the art of quilting.
