If anyone has a baton (the kind cheerleaders use to twirl) please get in touch with Linda Bokuniewicz before the guild meeting on the 2nd. Her husband Henry needs it for a science talent contest. All I can say is, I hope we can watch it on YouTube!
We have a celebrity in our midst. Judy’s quilt “Midnight in the Garden of Hearts and Flowers is featured in “500 Traditional Quilts!” Can’t wait to see the book! Congratulations Judy, we are thrilled to see your talent being acknowledged. This is an honor that is well deserved!

News from The Quilt Alliance –
The Quilt Alliance’s annual fundraiser, Quilters Take Manhattan, gets better every year, thanks to our savvy guests! Last year you wanted more workshops, more tours, more opportunities to see quilts, shop from our sponsors and more time to meet and greet with fellow quilters–and we listened! This year our main event at FIT is a full two hours longer (doors open at 10 am). Just like last year, tickets to the add-on events (see chart below linked to descriptions) are only available to those who also purchase a ticket to the main event at FIT for Saturday, September 20. If any tickets to these outings and events remain, they can be bought on an individual basis starting September 1. Don’t wait to sign up for your favorite add-on’s though–they are first come, first served and will go fast!
