Dear Fellow Quilters -
June is upon us and with it much warmer temperatures and some much needed rain.
Our Birthday meeting is 5th. Please remember to bring dessert if you signed up. Also, bring your own place setting and drink. The 2.5” strip this month is tan. There is a complete list of strips on the member section of the web site. You can bring in all your strips at once if you prefer. Marlynn will also take any items you wish to donate to the raffle baskets. The fat quarter is roses.
The next boutique sew-in on June 12th at 9:30am. Sign-ups have already started and the pattern is on the member section of the web site. Bring any boutique items you’ve been working on at home to any meeting. Remember that in addition to patterns listed on the member section of the web, the pattern binder is also available at all guild meetings.
June 19th is our monthly board meeting. The fat quarter is masculine. This meeting starts our ‘guest’ program chairs. We cant wait to see what’s in store for us.
Wednesday, June 26th is the next open sewing at 9:30am. The first one was a great success and everyone had a fun time. Sign-ups will take place at the June 19th meeting.
This is your opportunity to sit and sew among friends – whether you are working on boutique, charity, UFO’s, or show quilts. Bring a lunch and quilt in a relaxing atmosphere where there is always someone on hand to answer a question or offer assistance.
Many thanks to our recent ‘Meet the Quilter’ participants – Florence Hauser and Patti Chancey. Thank you for sharing your story with us! We enjoyed your presentations.
Our charity sew-in on May 29th was another fun time. Three new members joined the usual crowd and learned how to make walker bags. Thanks to Cathy Landon for all her hard work making this sew-in possible.
Looking ahead to July, there will only be ONE guild meeting – July 17th. Open sewing will be July 10th and the boutique sew-in will be July 24th.
As our show approaches I hope everyone is working on their quilt and member challenge entries. Additionally, if you plan on taking any of Susan Brubaker Knapp’s classes, please sign up and reserve your space. The success of the show depends on all of us.
If you have an announcement you would like to appear on the website, please e-mail the webmaster with the information, after any necessary approval, the information will be posted in the appropriate area.
The four Patriotic Quilts that were made from the Red, White, and Blue Challenge Blocks have been donated to the Disabled American Veterans, the American Legion, the Korean War Veterans, and the Marine Corp League. The groups plan to use them as Raffle Quilts for fundraisers. A BIG THANKS to everyone that participated!
