Happy Birthday America!!
Dear Fellow Quilters
July is finally here and summer is upon us.
July 2nd is our first meeting this month. We will be celebrating July birthdays. Dessert will be provided by the guild. Shay Kraft is our program chair for this meeting and Joann DeSantis will be our meet-the-quilter. Remember guild meetings start at 12:00 noon. Doors open at 11:15am. The fat quarter is patriotic.
Our next open sew-in/Workshop Wednesday will be on July 9th at 9:30am. Doors open at 9:15am. This is for guild members only. For those who already signed up, Joan Salerno will be doing a class on aprons. Everyone else is welcome to come and sit and sew.
July 11 and 12 is the workshop retreat with Margy Engel and Juantia Yeager. Please contact Jan Marshall with any questions.
July 16th will be a regular guild meeting. Margy Merle will be our program chair. That fat quarter is masculine prints. The meeting will start at noon. Doors open at 11:15am. As a reminder, there is no board or business meeting this month.
July 22nd is National Hammock Day – this is a perfect excuse to be lazy for a day!
July 23rd is Quilter’s Day Out hosted by Anita Kelly at Boutique 4 Quilters. This is for members who have already registered. Please contact Jan Marshall for information.
Our next charity sew-in is Wednesday, July 30th at 9:30am. Doors open at 9:15am. We will be making placemats.
A big thank-you to Dori Hawks, our program chair on June 18th. What a fun, informative presentation on scrap quilts. Here is the link to the video on the creative grid scrap rulers.
Have a safe, fun-filled 4th of July!

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!
