SEPTEMBER 3, 2019 MEETING REMINDER

Hello Members,

Welcome back to the Huntington Quilters Guild.  It nice to be back from a quiet summer vacation.  I hope you enjoyed you summertime as well.

This is your September 3, 2019 Meeting Reminder.  The first meeting of our new year will be held at Christ Lutheran Church Hall, located at Burr Road and Larkfield Road, in East Northport.  The meeting starts at 7:30 pm, but the hall is always open earlier for set up.  Won’t you try to stop down a bit early and help us set up for our meetings.

There are lots of good things to update and many changes being made within the guild.  New Board members and committee chairs are working hard to make your guild experience fantastic!

Our newest slate of officers for 2019 – 2020 are as follows:

PRESIDENT – Hilory B.
SECRETARY – Victoria G
TREASURER – Lucie B.

MEMBERSHIP – Lucille I. and Laura L. – The Membership Application has been updated and is located on the website, under the Membership tab.  Click on the link and print out the application and bring it with you to the September 3rd meeting along with your dues.

HOSPITALITY – Joan C. and Diane M…..Hi Ladies – Thanking you in advance for your desserts & goodies at our monthly meetings. If you get a request card and can’t make the meeting ask a friend to help out with a dessert.  Thanks, Joan & Diane, Your Hospitality Committee

PROGRAMS – Michelina M….Hi Ladies,  I will be your program coordinator for the next two years. We have some exciting speakers and classes to offer you! I hope everyone is as excited as I am! I have a tough act to follow, Jean, Alison and Liz, who have done an amazing job for the last four years!!

I am trying to get speakers that offer something for everyone. Your participation is key!!! I don’t expect everyone to sign up for every class, but we are a large group of members and if we come to at least one class, that will make for good attendance!!  I already have a program or speaker lined up for every month in the 2019-2020, also for September and October of 2020.

For our September program. It is usually a business meeting, especially with a new board coming in. So, we will do a UFO challenge. I would like for anyone who wants to participate, to find 5 UFO’s. write the name of each one on a piece of paper, one through five. Make two copies. One for you and one for me.  I will pull a number and you have two months to complete that UFO. Of course, a prize will be given.   It’s a game someone recommended to me. It’s sometimes done every month but I thought that would be too much pressure.  Let’s see how many participants we can get!! Let’s get some of those UFO’s completed!!

ALSO! 2020 is a Honeybee Raffle Year!! Looking for a chairperson to run this committee! Remember, as soon as someone puts their hand up and volunteers, many hands go up to help!! All we need is that ONE brave sole!!

Thank you!!  Looking forward to seeing everyone in September!!
Yours truly, Michelina Maguire

June 4, 2019 Meeting Agenda

Hello Ladies!

I hope all of you enjoyed yourselves at our year end festivities last evening.  The members outdid themselves with all of the culinary excitements.  The foods were delicious!  And there was so much for us to share.  Thanks to all of you for contributing to the festivities.

President Michelina Maguire thanked all the members who worked on committees and events throughout her term and who to continue to make this guild possible.  Here are some photos of the Ladies accepting a token of Michelina’s appreciation for their efforts over the past two years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The members contributed to and presented Michelina with a gift in return.  Many members made blocks in the themes of either food or flowers for Michelina to make into a quilt.  Over 150 blocks were collected and presented, in grateful thanks and appreciation for all her hard work over the past two years.

 

 

 

Jean, the Programs Committee member for these past four years, presented Michelina with blocks for her quilt!

The President’s Challenge quilts received a terrific response from our members.  The theme was “The Four Seasons”.    Members were encouraged to create four blocks depicting the four seasons.  Any configuration was acceptable.   The members voted on and picked the winners of the President’s Challenge.  And they were:

President’s Challenge Winners Karen, Lynne and Joan

First place – Karen W
Second Place – Joan OR
Third Place – Lynne R

Congratulations Ladies on your beautiful creations.

 

 

 

The 2019 Raffle Quilt was revealed at this evening’s festivities. SCRAP HAPPY WITH A TWIST!  It is a 98″ x 98″ custom quilted creation!    This pictures do NOT do this quilt justice.  The custom quilting, done my Barbara Ryan, enhanced the blocks beautifully!

The members response to their hard work was tremendous.   Forty-five member contributed to the making of this beautiful quilt.

Thank you to all the Ladies who’s work made this beautiful quilt.  (I wouldn’t mind winning this one myself!)

Go sell those raffle tickets Ladies!

 

The new slate of officers for the term of 2019 thru 2021 was announced.
