Membership- The fat quarter raffle will be your choice of color for May.  There will be NO fat quarter raffle for June.

Lucille made 2 quilt tops and collected some blocks that will be made into tops for Ukraine.  They will be quilted and mailed to Germany where they will be delivered to those in need.  The blocks are to be 8 ½ inches square in blue and yellow, color of their flag.

She is also collecting for Project Veronica.  If you have any pillowcases or toiletries, please deposit them in the box provided.

Pro-Bono- Linda and Trisha are also collecting items to be sent to Ukraine. They are in need of medical supplies, baby items etc.  Also, the pro-bono quilts collected will go to Ukraine as well.

We started a “Sharing Table” for the first time at the April meeting.  It was very successful!! 

Bring in any un-loved quilting related item you have, leave it on the table.  I am sure someone else will love it and take it home!  Please leave a small donation in the cup provided.  We collected $34.40.  yeah! 

You will need to take home anything that has been left on the table!  The idea is to NOT have to throw anything in the trash. You can then bring it to savers or try again the following month.

Lynne has begun a 50/50! Also, very successful!  $40. Was collected and the winner received $20. Yeah!

Program- April program was “Station Rotation” five different tables were set up and members demonstrated different techniques.

Our program will be a quilter, giving us helpful hints and tips for preparing your quilt.

Quilt Camp once again was a successful and fun day for everyone!  Special Thanks to Madeline and Jo for all their hard work putting this day together!  It is no small job!

Also, to those who helped with set up and clean up! Thank you!

Thank you to Eileen for the wonderful baskets she put together with donations from Pieceful Quilting. As you know, the shop has closed and Angie donated tons of items to the guild!  She said she was always partial to the Huntington group!

Eileen raffled off half the baskets at Quilt Camp and half at the April meeting.  Thank you!

Website/FB- please continue to take pictures and forward to Kathy so she may share them on the website for all to see!

June Pizza Party- there will be a sign- up sheet for the party.  Please put your name on it if you intend to join us.  An approximate number is needed for ordering. If you will not be at the May meeting and would like to attend in June, send me an e-mail, txt or call so that I may add you to the list.

Hospitality- Joan and Diane have done an amazing job providing goodies at all the meetings for us to enjoy.  Special Thanks to them for all their hard work!

We now need someone else to take over or we will not have refreshments or a December/June party.  This can be a two – three- person committee. Don’t forget everyone chips in to help when needed.  Please think about volunteering!

We also need a President!  Have you considered the job? Have questions? Just ask, maybe I have some answers.

We have a “Sunshine and Flowers” committee, Kathy R. 

She sends cards to those who are not well or have had a loss in the family.  She doesn’t always hear about these events in order to send a card.  If you know of someone who has lost a loved one, has been ill or had surgery, please forward her the information so she may acknowledge them on behalf of the guild.

Thank you!

Thank you for reading my updates!  I hope this helps keep everyone informed, especially those who are not able to make it to a meeting.

See you all next week, that’s all for now!

February 1, 2022 Meeting Photos.

We tried a little “social media” experiment last evening!

For the past few years, I had become the “unofficial” guild photographer. I have taken photos of guild activities to post on both Facebook and our website.

Unfortunately, I can no longer do so. In the past year or so, I have damaged or destroyed THREE cameras. My fault, yes! But this makes me unable to continue to take photos at events.

Since almost everyone has a cell phone with incredible photo taking capabilities, we tried something. All members were asked to take a photo of someone sitting next to them at the meeting and forward it to the guild’s email address. Below are the photos you so kindly contributed.

I am NOW asking each member to take photos with THEIR cell phones at various events. I will post whatever pictures we receive. If you have any questions on how to do this, please by all means ask me and we will figure this out together!

It’s not difficult ladies! After just one week of owning my very first smart phone, I was able to take pictures, email them to the guild and download them here on our website and Facebook page.

Please help me out with this endeavor! TAKE PICTURES!!!!!

Thank you,

Kathy Kelner

Web Mistress

Here are YOUR photos Ladies! Thank you ALL for your help with this!

HARBORFIELDS LIBRARY QUILT EXHIBIT – JANUARY 2022

Hello Ladies!

A dear friend and I took a trip over to the Harborfields Library on Saturday, January 22, 2022 to see the exhibit of quilts the Huntington Quilter guild had on display there.

As always, I am in awe of the handiwork and artistic designs from the members of this group. You work Ladies, truly does belong hanging in an exhibit for all to see.

Why not take a few minutes to go to the Harborfields Library and take a look at the quilts on exhibit. Hope to see you all there!

Weekly Update for December 22, 2021

Hello My Quilting Friends!!
>
> I think it’s safe to say our Holiday Party was a complete success!!!  I’ve heard from many of you both at the party and afterwards, nothing but positive comments!!


> I must thank the hospitality committee, Joan C. And Diane M. They did an amazing job and worked so hard all evening to ensure our festivities went smoothly!

> I hope you all enjoyed the food! It was provided by Spuntino, they are on Old Country Rd in the old Pathmark shopping center.  If you happen to go there, tell Joe how much you enjoyed the food. 


> Catering our party was the first time this has ever been done.  We ordered what we thought would be a decent amount.  Turns out, we did have a lot of leftovers.  Had I thought of it, we would have provided some take out plates and distributed to anyone interested .  I brought the food home and prepared it to be frozen thinking we would bring it back in January.  It might bring in more members for pro-bono night.


> Rather than go through all the trouble of freezing, defrosting, heating it up and bringing it back in January, a decision was made to donate the leftovers.  It wasn’t easy finding a soup kitchen willing to take it because it had been open. A friend of Lucie suggested Tri CYA, behind the Famous Footwear in the Big H shopping center in Huntington. They were all too happy to receive it. I told them they could freeze any leftovers, she said there wouldn’t be any leftovers.


> We take for granted how blessed we are and how many people there are longing for a hot meal. I hope everyone feels we made the right decision to donate the food.


> Next year, if the guild decides to cater the party again, I have a list with the food that was ordered and the number of guests.  They will be able to adjust the amount of food accordingly.


> Congratulations go to Lucie B. For winning our 2021 stunning “A Year of Staying Home “ Raffle Quilt! 


> Congratulations to those who won 2nd, 3rd and the door prize. Also to those who won the baskets and plants!


> I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did!!

Spoke with Carol N. She sounds good and is coming along! I sent her well wishes from everyone and mailed her the get well card we all signed.
>
> I wish you all a Blessed Holiday, no matter what you celebrate!  A Happy and Healthy New Year!  May we all get out from under this Covid mess soon.


> Looking forward to seeing seeing everyone next year!!

Michelina Maguire
