Dear Fellow Quilters
Welcome to November! It’s time for turkey, pumpkin pie, the Macy’s Parade and football!!!
Our first meeting is on the 5th at noon. To start this meeting off we will be holding our bi-annual elections. You must be present to vote. We will also be celebrating November birthdays. The fat quarter is Thanksgiving prints. Cathy Landon will also be collecting money for the Christmas party on December 3rd. The cost is $10.00.
Tuesday, November 11th is Veteran’s Day. Be sure to thank a veteran for their service and our freedom!
Barbara Lacey and her boutique committee will be holding their next boutique sew-in on Wednesday, November 12th at 9:30. Details will be given at the meeting on the 5th.
November 19th will be our board and business meeting. The fat quarter is landscapes. This will also be the deadline to sign-up for the Christmas party.
A huge thank-you to Cathy Landon, our out-going Philanthropy chair. Her last sew-in as chair was on October 22nd. We made dozens of chemo caps. Thank you to all who came to sew with us and who took kits home. Cathy has worked tirelessly in this position the last 4 years and done an amazing job! Many thanks, also, to Jeanne Schlough for cutting all those chemo-cap kits.
There will be no workshops or sew-ins on the 26th.
I want to wish each of you a memorable, safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

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!
