Welcome to North Idaho Quilters!

General Meeting

WE ARE NOT MEETING IN NOVEMBER November 23, 2020 6:00 pm at Shriners Hall, 1250 W Lancaster Rd, Hayden, ID.  
This was supposed to be our annual (all be it late) Basket Raffle and Silent Auction.  HOWEVER, due to the increase in COVID cases and genera concern about the well being of our members and guests, the meeting (and Board meeting) have been cancelled! 

If you had a donation for the basket raffle or silent auction, please hang on to it, and it will be used in 2021.  Thank you and we hope you all stay safe and well!

Activity Day

Hey all NIQ members!!

Are you ready for Activity Day??? That’s right, Activity day is up and going again. It’s been way to long since we’ve gotten together for a fun day of fellowship. Our contract is signed for the next year and we’re back in business.

I’ve been asked if we can “re-vamp” our activities for the upcoming year. So I think it would be nice to get your input on what you would like activity day to look like.

We’ll be looking at different ways to help Catherine for community service support. Plus new ways to put blocks together and other things the NIQ represents that you would like to include. So please bring your good ideas on what and how we can better present this fun day together.

Please wear your masks! I know it’s hard, maybe we can have breaks where you step outside a couple minutes for a breather. If you would like to attend and can’t wear a mask for medical reasons, please follow social distancing rules. We won’t be having a potluck, so please bring your own drinks, hot or cold and brown bag lunch.

I really hope a bunch of you can make it. I apologize for the late notice, I’m new at this job and it will get better!!!

Take care, I look forward to seeing you all and getting to know you better!!

For Sale

Our guild recently received a generous donation of fabric, quilting supplies and a Grace Z44 Fabri-Fast Hand Quilting Professional Frame from the estate of Pamela Olsen, a former member of NIQ. This top-of-the-line hand-quilting frame is fully adjustable to raise or lower the frame to several different heights (you can even quilt standing up) and tilt the work area to 6 different positions. The fourth rail comes standard and allows better management of the batting. Crib, twin, queen and king-size quilts can all be accommodated , depending which extensions are used. And it folds for compact storage, with your fabric still in place. A complete instruction manual, pole extensions, and bungee clamps are included. This would cost $1,020.00 new, but has been discounted and is no longer available. It's a real bargain for only $400.00 Contact Carlene Litz at [email protected] or 208.765.2501.
