July General Meeting

NIQ Basket Raffle and Silent Auction

The NIQ Basket Raffle and Silent Auction is coming up on Monday, July 25th at the NIQ General meeting, 6:00-8:00 (doors open at 4:30pm)

It will be here before you know it. It's time to start putting together those baskets.

Bring your baskets or auction items to the meeting on July 25th. There will be a reserve amount for the silent auction items again this year which you get to set. That means, if the highest bid doesn’t reach the reserve amount, you can take your item back.

What to do:

  • Sign up for basket or silent auction -- Sign up sheets will be at the May meeting or email Caroline Dobner

If donating a basket:

  • Provide a list of the items in the basket
  • Who donated the basket
  • Name for the basket
  • Estimated value

Just a reminder that items DO NOT have to be quilting and sewing related

Please reach out to Caroline Dobner (208.661.9928 or [email protected]) to sign up or if you have baskets or items that you want to donate and are not able to attend the raffle.

NIQ Kids Camp is Featured in Quiltfolk Magazine!

The much anticipated QUILTFOLK ISSUE 20---IDAHO magazine is starting to appear in mailboxes.

  

With 164 pages full of photographs, and no advertisements, it’s more like a book than a magazine. We feel quite honored that they chose to feature an article about our NIQ Kids Camp.

  

When the editor requested a photo shoot of our longest attending campers a week before our actual camp, Ross Point Camp provided the perfect backdrop, and 6 of our most experienced campers provided the action. The result in the magazine is 10 pages of glossy photos and a good description of our North Idaho Quilters Sewing and Quilting Camp.  Quiltfolk generously gave us permission to share additional photos from the shoot, which you can see below. Their social media handle is @quiltfolk.


QUILTFOLK ISSUE 20---IDAHO is NOT available on news stands or in book stores, but you can download the coupon code to order it from their website www.quiltfolk.com at a significant discount.  Your Coupon Code: KidsCampQF20  This coupon code, created exclusively for you, will give you 20% off your total purchase. It is valid for three months: October 1st - December 31st.  The coupon code is very easy to use. You can go to the website and add the items you’d like to purchase to your cart. Then you can enter the coupon code in one of two places: either your shopping cart or during checkout.  The discount will be reflected on your total amount.

  

Other quilters in the Panhandle that are featured in this issue are Dexter Yeats, an Ironman World Champion triathlete who quilts on her “rest days”, and Karen Hagen, who has shown her delightful quilts to our guild twice and finally has her own Kascha Quilts museum in Genesee.
