February News

Executive News
Welcome to February...what happened to January?
If anyone missed joining the UFO challenge last month you can still get on the list. Bring your UFO to this month's meeting to have it documented.
This meeting will be "Helpful Hints Night" Bring any helpful hints of tips that you have discovered or read about and share them with the rest of us. We can all learn something new.
If you have any requests for in-guild projects or ideas then please let Irene know what YOU would like to have happen.
See everyone on Tuesday.

Dear Jane
The Dear Jane project will start Feb 8 at 9:00 am at the Focus on Fibre building for anyone who wishes to participate. At that time we will make decisions on how often and when we will get together to work on this project.
There are a couple of Dear Jane tools out there that would be handy to have - they are both rulers, one the size of the centre blocks and one the size of the border blocks. The book and the tools are available at several places on line including amazon.com. You may wish to have your own book.
If you have not yet checked it out there is a web site
http://www.dearjane.com/ that gives tips for the blocks.
Planetary Party Raffle Quilt
Please bring your completed blocks to the February 8 meeting so they can be collected and sent out for the embroidery of the alien's names.
