It's nearly time for our monthly meeting August 5th. Did you know we have a fat quarter of fabric drawing at every single guild meeting? Also there are two other door prize gifts usually from Sager Creek Quilt Shop. It's always fun to win at something!
August meeting is at the Masonic Lodge this month!
Bring a pet themed fat qtr and $1 for the drawing.
Bring 20$ for a chance to win a registration for the Ricky Tims Luminarium conference
In the next few months there are several local quilts nearby. So if you like going on a drive, check these out:

July meeting featured a group sew in with one our own Dogwood Quilters, Sharon Phillips. If you have ever purchased a Hex N More template and didn’t know what to do with it-
This was your class! Honestly I wasn’t interested at first because in my mind HEXY= COMPLICATED but when I heard the word WONKY I was all in!
Also, any class, block, or pattern that uses up scraps from your stash ( a stashbuster) is my favorite! I personally have a deep love for old fashioned quilts made by grannies using scrap fabric, old clothing, and/or flour sacks.
Check out my hexy!
Can’t wait for retreat to finish this one up.
Small Quilt Display
The Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale has a wonderful quilt fair on the second Saturday of September every year.
For the last three years they have added a “small quilt” display to the fair curated by our own April Rusch.
The group who previously provided quilts for the display has disbanded, the Dogwood Guild is to provide quilts for the display.
There are no hard and fast rules, and the general guideline for the small quilts is that the quilt be APPROXIMATELY 20 inches x 20 inches or smaller. But there are no quilt police at this fair and it’s likely that several of the placemats some of you made for the what’s for dinner challenge would be more than ideal for the display.
If you would like to join the Guild contact us!
We would be delighted to display your tiny quilt also, bring your submission no later than the September Dogwood guild meeting the first Saturday in September. Feel free to get contact April with any questions you have or email@example.com.
