Our December meeting will include a talk on cybersecurity by Patrick Robinson. Patrick works for AT&T in their Cybersecurity group. He consults with and advises governments on cybersecurity tools, methods and risks. In this role, he keeps up with technologies and adversaries, like Russian hackers, to help his customer stay ahead of the bad actors. In his spare time, he writes and evangelizes on the importance of everyone being "cyber aware." He will be speaking to us about personal cybersecurity and things we can do to keep our personal information safe in this high-tech world.
The December meeting is also our Holiday Party, with refreshments furnished by the board. We will have a business meeting and our Soup Bowl Cozy exchange (see details below). Bring your soup cozy in a gift bag for the exchange. Also, remember to bring your Block of the Month blocks #3 and #4, and any donations for Lovepacs.
Blocks 3 and 4
Instructions for Blocks 1 through 6 are now available.
Introducing our newest challenge, the Quiltmakers Block of the Month! This challenge features 13 blocks over 6 months (in case you want to set your blocks on point) and is a study in color value and its importance in creating a successful quilt! At each meeting, we will be revealing two blocks, with the last three being revealed at the March meeting. For instructions, patterns, and fabric requirements, head on over to the Challenge page.
For our December challenge and exchange, we will be making fabric soup bowl cozies! Easy and fun to make, you will find that you have a stack of them sewn together before you know it! Head over to the Challenge page for instructions and details. Bring your finished cozy in a gift bag for the exchange at the December guild meeting.
