New links and Pages

Information on the Marquis de Lafayette Quilt is now in it's own page at the top right of the website.
The few pictures I have of the unveiling of the quilt are located on the Shutterfly page. Just click on the link "Photo Gallery" in the right column and they are located under July.

I have also had a chance to upload the notes Diane Redfern used for the August Program. This is located under the page "Downloads & Links". Lots of handy numbers...

Christmas Notes

There are only 2 more QGA meetings to bring your donations for the Christmas Auction!! We've already gotten some really nice items and we're waiting for yours! The November meeting is only two weeks before the auction, so it would help the committee to have the majority of items a little earlier. Thank you all ahead of time for your donations. Auction Tickets will be on sale for the dinner ($25) and for the Ticket Auction ($1 each) at the October meetings. Look for the Christmas Table in Grandstaff hall at the meetings. It's getting closer and we're getting excited!!! Don’t forget to bring your Fall colors Fat Quarters for October!!
The Christmas Committee!

Program Notes

October is going to be a great meeting! We have so much going on! Sue Melancon will be giving an awesome presentation on combining all those random “orphan blocks” we all have lying around waiting to be used--I can’t wait to see what she has to inspire us! If you have a completed project you have made with your own Orphan blocks, we would love for you to bring for display and be able to inspire others as well!
Joan will have more Paint Chip Challenges available for pick up, so be sure to grab one of those. And don’t forget to sign up for the Michael Young class for January…
Lunch is being ordered from Anne’s Table,
a great new restaurant on Jefferson Street featuring healthy, gourmet food.
There will not be a vendor this month because of the Houston Quilt Festival...
Don’t forget to bring a friend to the meeting or Sew Day. 
Our membership is growing and our goal is 200!

President's Message

Nadine's Notes
    As 2013 marches steadily toward its departure, we are preparing for a joyful and fun-filled time of the year: Cooler weather, fall colors, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  Between festivals and football games, we still find time to work on our fun projects and quilts.  It is also a busy and fun-filled time for Quilters' Guild Acadienne.   Quilt Camp is quickly approaching, the registration deadline is October 16th.  Contact Cindy Brignac in order to register.  The Christmas Auction Committee will be meeting on Tuesday, October 22 from 9:30 to 3:30.  If you are interested in helping, contact Judy Garber.  

     Again, a reminder that the October meetings, the board and general meetings will be one week earlier due to the conflict with the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  The Board Meeting will be October 17th and the QGA General meeting will be October 24th.  Mark your calendars.  I hope to see you at the October meeting to share in new opportunities and activities and to have fun, learn something, and make new friends. 

Happy quilting, Nadine
