Our third annual Quilt Olympics program during our April meeting was a huge success! Thank you to all who participated, either by playing the games, or leading them.
Lauren Krause lead four teams through a VIP (Very Important Project) game that left members giggling over sewing themed acronyms. The Crafty Divas, the Sewcialites, the Cut Ups, and the Seam Rippers contemplated their PHD (Project Half Finished), which made them want to go on a FART (Fabric Acquisition Road Trip). It was challenging and amusing… and ended in a tie between the Cut Ups and the Seam Rippers!
Melissa Bogusch and Ann Marie Stephenson created an incredible Jeopardy-themed game. They challenged members to think critically to deduce the questions to answers such as the following. Answer: Andover designer of Sun Print and Kaleidoscope collections’ optimistic view of the amount of beverage left to drink. Question: Who is Alison “Glass Half Full”? They really came up with some creative quilt-related questions and answers for the meeting.
Heather Kinion had members digging through and looking around their sewing spaces to find various objects for her Quilt-ish Scavenger Hunt. Do you have a notion that is made to look like an animal? 8 points! 1 point for every cutting implement (sewing related or not) that you can SEE! And so many more!
There was also a Sewcial breakout room for members to chat and laugh about the games we played. It really was a fun-filled meeting!
Congratulations to our overall Quilt Olympics III winners!
- 3rd place with 421 points: Holly Harper!
- 2nd place with 432 points: Debbie Pine!
- And *drum roll please* in 1st place with 485 points: Carole Wool!
Our April meeting was the first with our newly elected board
as our guild leaders. Sarah Shulman and Holly Harper took some time to thank the outgoing board members for their dedication and work over the past year. Thanks to the contributions of many generous guild members, they were able to purchase bundles of fabric and thread for each 2020-21 board member as lovely appreciation gifts.
