August Meeting Program Features Vintage Quilters Tips and Tricks

OK Quilters!  It is time to put the Va-Va-Voom into Vintage!  Joanna and Judy are bringing tips, tricks and tools to help you keep on doing what you love.  We’ll be looking at aids for vision, that pesky Arthur-it-is, oh-those-aching knees and backs, and more.  We expect that many of you also have favorite tools and methods to work around, over or through your challenges, so bring them to share.

Equally important—bring or talk about what did NOT work for you. Help us all save some $$.

But wait, there’s more! We have been promising you a great fabric sale, and it will be at our August meeting.  Fabrics will be piled by size: 1/4 yard or fat quarter, 1/2 yard, 1, 2 and 3 yards.  It may be more than that yardage but we are going for simplicity.

When you enter the meeting, choose a number from the bag.  During the break, we will call the numbers and you can choose up to three items when it is your turn.  We hope to make sure everyone has fair access this way. Be sure to bring cash or your checkbook.

As always, our August 21 meeting will be held at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 50 N. Prospect St., downtown Akron, Ohio.  Socializing begins at 6:30 p.m., with the meeting at 7 p.m.

It’s “Picnic” Time

The guild’s annual “picnic” festivities will be held at the Waterloo Restaurant, 423 E. Waterloo Road, Akron, Ohio, on Thursday, July 17, at 6:00 p.m.  To help you get some ideas about what to order, check out their menu here. Each person will get a separate check.

We’ll be inducting our new officers, in addition to enjoying each others’ company.

Please let Kathy Hummel ( know if you plan to attend so she can give the restaurant a head count.
