 Members who wear a name tag to the meeting will get a raffle ticket upon signing in that evening. You could win a fabulous prize just for wearing your name tag! We’d love to see every member wearing one as it really fosters camaraderie when we all know each other’s names.


Get in on the fun each month with our themed fat quarter raffle. This month’s theme, inspired by the opening of school, is Schools/Libraries/Books/Calligraphy. So bring in a fat quarter with this month’s theme fabric and you could be the winner of a bunch of great fat quarters.

A Note From Gilma

Dear Huntington Quilters,

When I first started quilting, I was so in awe of how welcoming quilters were and how willing they are to help you in any way that they can. Seventeen years later, I still feel that way. I have loved being a member of this guild and serving on the board. Thank you so much for my beautiful hat lady blocks which will always remind me of all of you and which I will treasure forever, and for your generosity with the donations for the troops and the books for the hospital. I want to thank you most of all for your friendship. Some of you have become my true friends and some of you are acquaintances but you have all touched my life in a wonderful way. I will miss you all very much and I promise to visit and show you the completed hat lady quilt. My address is in the roster. Please feel free to call me and stop in if you are in South Carolina!

Love always,
Your friend,

New Beginnings!

Thank you to all of you who helped make our June party such a special celebration!  For those of you who were not able to attend, we made the decision at the meeting to amend our meeting schedule. We will NOT have a meeting in January, and will now have formal meetings in July and August.  A vote was taken to make this change in the meeting schedule, and there was an almost unanimous agreement to take this step.  For this year, we will not be able to meet at the Lutheran Church in July and August.  Lucie Blohm has arranged for the guild to use The Conklin Barn, which is located on New York Avenue across from Appliance World in Huntington Village. There is parking for about 20 cars (carpooling would be a good idea).  There is street parking (no meters) and there are municipal lots not too far away.   The meetings will be held on July 7 and August 4 from 7 – 9 pm.

The evening was bittersweet, as we wished Gilma our very best on her move to North Carolina.  We are not saying goodbye, since we know Gilma will be back to visit, and who knows, maybe a guild road trip to Murrell’s Inlet could be arranged!  Laura Catlan organized a hat block party for Gilma to remember us all by.  Each hat was special and beautiful and conveyed something unique about the maker.

Last, but certainly not least, we thanked our outgoing board members and committee chairs, and welcomed the new!
