Our guild is large and has many wonderful groups from which to choose. Whether you are a new member or have been in the guild for many years, you are welcome to come to the mentor class and meet quilters who enjoy quilting and learning new skills just like you.
We are sorry that we had to cancel the January mentoring class because of the forecasted bad weather but we would rather be safe than have someone out in bad weather.

We will be making a Rail Fence table runner. We will have you do some pre-cutting before class and be making the middle of the rail fence table runner. We will see how far we get and will see if we need an additional class for the borders. This table runner will be set on point so if you haven’t set anything on point this would be a great opportunity to learn how.
March 21, 2019 and April 18, 2019
Cheryl Adam will be teaching us how to make this fantastic bag. Bet you can’t make just one!
If you have any mentoring classes you would like us to do, please stop by and let us know.
Come join us for a fun night out quilting with friends.

Plans are well underway for the 2019 Quilt Show. Just a few updates for everyone.
First, in case you hadn't heard yet, we are pleased to announce that Suzi Parron will be our featured speaker at the show this year. She will be doing a lecture in the afternoon on both Friday and Saturday. Along with hosting a workshop on both Friday and Saturday from 9am to 1pm to a maximum of 30 students each day. At this time this is only open to HAAQG members. We ask that you attend only one workshop so more members have the opportunity to attend as well. The sign up form is attached to this newsletter or you may pick one up from me at the Februry meeting. We will have the quilt entry forms available at the February meeting as well.
If there are any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snow days have given me time to ponder books for the HAAQG library. So many books, so little time.
So (sew) little time led me to a lovely book new to me ... PIN PALS by Carrie Nelson. Interesting "regular" size book about many little projects, pin cushions. Please find time to look at this book online and let me (Connie J Carstens) know if we should buy for HAAQG library.
If you have books or magazines to donate to the HAAQG library sale, please contact Mary Weakman or Linda Edward's. Storage space is very limited.
If you have any book suggestions, please let Connie J Carstens, Mary Weakman or Linda Edwards know.

This year’s Relief Sale will be held March 15th & 16th at the Interstate Center. If you would like to donate a wall hanging or quilt for the auction – or an item for the bazaar – please contact Mary Sanko for details. The committee is requesting a picture of all quilted items donated to the auction.
Please bring your donation to the March meeting. She will make sure it gets to the sale and will obtain a tax receipt for you.
We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready for the New Year to start our many projects for the local community. At the table, we will have some kits available for the ‘taking’ and ‘finishing’.
This spring brings the continued need for Nursing Home and Cancer Comfort quilts. The fidgit quilts are always greatly appreciated by the Adult Care facilities. Bring any finished projects to the table and we will see that they are distributed to the proper places.
Thank you for all your continued time and efforts to supply these many different items that are so much appreciated.

Thank you for the wonderful response to this out-of-the-box challenge put forward last September. I hope you all enjoyed making and seeing the different items on display.
Thank you again to all the persons who participated in the challenge.

Members, we will stop taking orders for the jackets, vests and denim shirts at our April meeting, so if you are wanting one to have to wear at our Quilt Spectrum, the sooner you order it the better the chance to have it in time for it. We are not making a fortunate off of the selling these items but the more we do sell, it will help keep the cost of our workshops down.

Members, we need a member or a group of members who would be willing to host the guild's sewing retreat in June of this year and/or hosting the retreat in January 2020. If anyone or a group is interested, please contact me.
