UPDATES FOR THE PROGRAMS



We have had a few volunteers to do the last of this years meeting programs.  We probably should think about our 2019 program year,  It will be here before we know it.   I plan to be at the October meeting with my "chicken calendar and notebook".  So think about what you would like to share for 2019.  I have missed all of you,  Jeanne

August 6, 2018

Present at the August TAGY meeting were Lindsay, Jan W, Jan H, Barbara P,  Ben, Ginger, Pam, and Kenli, also two guests; Carol Shephard from Cody, and Mary Shirley Jones from Red Lodge.

Some of the Marketplace Challenge Quilts were shown. They are not shown here so you must come to the Yellowstone Quilt Fest (YQF) to see them!  More challenge quilts are in progress. Lindsay is getting the Marketplace photo enlarged to hang with the inspired quilts at YQF. Thank you Lindsay.

You may also show other TAGY Art Quilts that have not been shown before at this quilt show. Challenge quilts, "Marketplace" and monthly 12" x 12" quilts, are free entry and are not voted on for People's Choice.

Other Art Quilts, that will be voted on, require an entry fee, and will be given a voting number.  Registration and Entry forms are available here: http://www.yellowstonequiltfest.info/YQF/index.html and are due by August 28th.  Please support our quilt show by showing your quilts.

Ginger brought two items for Show and Tell:
One is her color wheel quilt (above), and the second is her first quilt, which she hand quilted (below).












Guest Marie Shirley Jones Showed her beautiful hand dyed quilts.

Members were asked to bring their Favorite Tools and they include:

Spaghetti for making dots;
Clips for binding;
Favorite tools
Use purple thread in the bobbin and black thread for the top to make it easier to take out mistakes;
"Thimble It" discs instead of a standard thimble.

Note:
We need a few volunteers to hang the TAGY quilts on the stage at Yellowstone Quilt Fest on Wednesday, September 5th.  Let Linda MacDonald know if you can help. [lov2quilt@gmail.com]

With your help we are going to have a wonderful quilt show!
