​Hello quilters!
Keep up the good job!  Your smiles and hellos to our new and not so new members make for a joyful and happier Quilt Guild.
The July  Hive meeting was delightful.  Sue Olson showed us her Steampunk Quilt and shared tips and sample fabrics suitable for this pattern.  The pattern with templates is by Jen Kingwell.   Sue also gave away gifts, beautiful hand-made embellished needle keepers and good hand sewing needles.

For the August Hive meeting Rose Wilson will demonstrate Cathedral Windows.  She has also provided the following list of material just in case you want to try your hand on Cathedral Window:

                  4- eight inch squares for background muslin or any solid color
                  4- two and one fourth inch window fabrics, strong contrast to the background
                  Matching thread and needle
                  Small pins such as applique pins
                 12 inch Ruler
                 Marking pen like Friction

The September Hive meeting will feature Paper Pieced Pineapple quilt block.  Our very own member and shop owner Marcie Albers will demonstrate how to Paper Piece Pineapple block using Sew Emma Pineapple Paper Piecing booklet available to purchase from different Quilt Shops in town.

                                                                               Material list is listed on the pattern booklet and will depend upon

                                                                              the size you plan to use, 6 inch or 12 inch block.

We have 50 finished Pillowcases with drawstrings ready to deliver to Children’s Advocacy Center.  Thank you ladies for your support, it means a lot to the kids.  Please keep the pillowcases coming and see y’all at the August Hive meeting.

​​​What is the Hive?
     The Hive is a group of new members of the Quilters’ Guild of East Texas who meet after the conclusion of the Guild meeting to learn new skills related to quilting and to get acquainted with other members of the Guild.
Where does it meet?
     Usually, the meeting room is in the second building in the room #5 Conference Room. This is also the room where workshops are held.
When does it meet?
     The meeting starts about 30 minutes after the Guild meeting concludes or around 12:30. This start time allows you to get a quick meal or enjoy a sack lunch that you brought from home. There is a snack-eating area in the foyer of the second building.
