 What fun workshops we had with Joanna Figueroa and I think we bought her out of her patterns. We enjoyed her
methods of freezer paper and painting on starch to get perfect shapes but especially working with felted wools (you don’t
have to turn woo1!) On Friday one of our members took her ―Birdsong Quilt‖ and by Saturday morning had hit every
thrift store in Orange County and bought up all the old wool jackets and pants for recycling!

                                            In March, we still have room for our Cynthia England class – only $35.00;
                                            and GREAT NEWS! Cynthia said this morning that you can make either
                                            project on either day… or if you’re quick? Why not make both? There are
                                            only 6 spaces left in Friday’s class. Saturday’s class we still have 16
                                            spaces, so it would be fun for a whole Friendship Group to go together. If
                                            you like, there is a kit including all fabrics shown: East Coast Beach scene
                                            kit is an additional $35.00; Tropical kit is an additional $29.00 – if you do
                                            not purchase a kit, the pattern is a class fee of $9.00. Email me today to

                             SELL TICKETS----WIN PRIZES!!!
         Yes, dear friends, the more opportunity quilt tickets you sell, the more prizes you’ll win! For each completed
packet of tickets that you sell, your name will be entered into the drawing for wonderful classes taught by seven different
guild members. You can make a purse, a tote bag, embroider a pouch, learn to appliqué, make a table runner, create a
new name tag, paint fabric, or win a card for Kinkos! Each of these projects is designed to be completed in day (no
UFOs) and is a gift to thank you for all your help in continuing to make Beach Cities the wonderful guild that it is. We
start fresh each month with new entries based on what is turned in since the previous drawings. There will be drawings at
the March, April, and May meetings.
        AND….for the person who sells the most tickets, she will receive the smaller replica (little sister) of FantaSea of
Beauty! While the deadline for ticket sales is one second before the drawing on Sunday, June 6 at 3:00pm at our quilt
show, if you are competing for this grandest of prizes, your tickets and money need to have been turned in to Elaine
Pappas-Puckett by Thursday, June 3rd.

  Your packet of Opportunity Quilt Tickets that is. If you haven’t picked up your packet of tickets, please
  stop by the table to get your set of tickets. If they aren’t picked up by the March meeting, we will have to
  mail them---which would be wasting money we would rather spend on programs and philanthropy! Please
  pick up the packets of others in your friendship groups as well. The more tickets that are out in the commu-
  nity, the more we can continue to do the work we’ve being doing for ourselves and our community. Con-
  tact Elaine Pappas-Puckett to get the tickets to you.

  Yes, a mistake was made when the Opportunity Quilt tickets were printed. The dates of the Quilt Show are
  listed incorrectly. The dates should read June 5 -6. Please correct the dates on the tickets you sell. The
  dates are correct on the flyers, postcards, and inserts.

The Traveling Quilters Our Temecula Quilt-Away Retreats are always fun and productive weekends. It’s a great oppor-
tunity to finish projects or start something new. We usually have anywhere from 30 to 45 people at the retreat so it’s al-
ways fun to see what people are working on. Each person has half an 8-ft table for sewing space in our large, well-lit
classroom. Once again we'll be staying at the Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in the Temecula wine region. Email

                 BLOCK PARTY
What cute acorn blocks were turned in at the Feb.
meeting. Wonderful job girls, especially those of you
who took on the challenge of making a checkerboard
cap for the acorn. Our lucky winners were Pat Pardoen
and Jean Carr. We have had some difficulties with the
pattern being reformatted when we post it to the news-
letter. This has made it difficult to find all the dimen-
sions. If this problem continues and you experience
difficulties PLEASE call either Linda or Jennifer and
we will mail you a clear copy or walk you through with
verbal directions.
