It will be jam-packed with fun. If you took Nancy’s UFO challenge, they are now due. We can’t wait to see all of the finished quilts. The new slate of officers for the 2015-2016 term will be presented at this meeting. Many thanks to those who volunteered to lead the guild. The fat quarter is Halloween prints.
October 8th is our next boutique sew-in. Details will be given at the guild meeting on October 1st. Contact Barbara Lacey with any questions.
The Halloween party will be held at our business meeting on the 15th. New this year is the witch hat contest, but we will also have prizes for the best costumes. If you have any questions, please contact Gail Zorr. Refreshments will be provided. The fat quarter is autumn prints.
We will be charity sewing on October 22nd. Sew-in starts at 9:30. We will be making chemo caps, among other charity items. Cathy Landon has done an exceptional job as Philanthropy chair over the last four years. This will be her final sew-in as chair. Let’s make it the best one ever!

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!
