Events

Here you will find a photo gallery of guild/member activities.  Challenges, an online Sew n Show are just two examples.  The intent is to keep it fresh with new photos up first and older photos taken off in a timely fashion.

Each event will have an introduction and a link to the photo page. 

Pins Needles and Thread title

A Fall Website Challenge for PQHQG Members

maple leafThe first day of fall is September 22nd , now didn’t that just sneak up on us! How about a little fall fun and we do mean little, something very easy (well you can make it as hard as you like) that won’t take away from whatever quilting plans you have leading up to the end of the year.

This is a three part challenge, each month you will be creating a different notion. You can make them match as a set or not, you do not have to participate every month to be entered in the monthly random draw (yes there are prizes!). The first draw will be at the beginning of October and will be announced on the guild website under Events, find that under the Benefits tab, along with the next challenge notion to be created.

needle, spool and threadTake a photo of your September entry and submit it to website@parksvillequilthousequilters.com no later than September 30th. Photos will be posted in a gallery for each month with your first name and last initial. The individual gallery links are at the bottom of this page. “Needle little help?” Check out the Website Submissions advice.

In October you will take a picture of both your September and October entries together (if you didn’t do a September project no problem just submit your October project) and submit them in the same way as above, no
later than October 31st .

In November you will take a picture of all three projects together, or how many you completed and submit that photo no later than November 30th .

pin cushionThe November notion you will create is a thread catcher.  Any size, any style but it must be at least partially created using fabric.

Here is a free example thread catcher basket pattern courtesy of the Mermaid's Den.

At the end of the challenge you will have a new set of notions for yourself, to gift or how about selling the set on the new Quilthouse Quilters’ Buy n Sell page on Facebook?
