Membership Reminders for September
Summer vacation season may be over, but let’s keep the spirit alive with the September fat quarter raffle. This month’s theme is travel/maps. Be inspired by your favorite destinations and bring your FQ to get in on the raffle.
Wear your name tag to the meeting for more raffle fun. It’s your chance to win a half yard of lovely fabric.
Membership renewal time! A HUGE thank you to all those who mailed their renewals to Rosy during the summer! We really appreciate your helping us avoid the September rush. You may still renew by mail, and we urge you to do so.
If you plan to renew your membership at the September meeting, bring your check for $30 payable to Huntington Quilters along with your completed Membership Form (which you will find at our website). Forms will not be provided at the meeting. Computer buddies, please let your non-computer pals know so they can make arrangements to obtain a renewal form.
Notes from Programs:
September we will have an extended Show and Tell- so bring all your summer projects in to share.
Also- We would like to do a pin cushion swap, so if you want to participate, bring in a 10-12 inch piece of fabric with your name pinned onto it. We will swap names and make one for each other. If you have a pin cushion that you have made, please bring it in to show, whether you want to do the swap or not. We will have a table of pin cushion creations on view for ideas.
October- Presentation and vending from the Quilt Basket, Pawllings, NY (Home of the Cuties)
November- Presentation by the fabulous Meg Cox- Author, Quilter
December- Holiday party
Mark your Calendars!!
Saturday, January 28th we have Michelle Renee Hiatt returning for a workshop by popular demand- chase away those winter doldrums with a fun and exciting quilting workshop. It will be held at Christ Lutheran Church.
Saturday, March 11th Workshop with Michele Scott Details will be forthcoming.
See you Tuesday!!
Jean and Alyson
The meeting will be held at the Conklin Barn, Huntington tomorrow at 7:00 PM. (Panera’s is having some renovations done, and is not available for a meeting). Hope you can make it! If not, see you in September, and please remember to either mail your completed membership form to Rosie, or bring it to the September meeting.
Reminders for the June Meeting:
Not Too Early to Think About Membership Renewal for 2016-17
Bette and Rosy urge HQ members to RENEW EARLY for 2016-17! Please consider bringing your membership renewal materials to our JULY MEETING so the September rush can be avoided. Alternatively, mail your check and membership form to Rosy before September.
Make your check for $30 payable to Huntington Quilters and bring it in July (or send it to Rosy before September) along with your completed membership form which you can download and print from our HQ website.
Need your photo taken? See Rosy at the July meeting.
Pillowcases for Soldiers:
Lucille and Gilma will be collecting patriotic pillowcases for our soldiers at the November meeting. Making these pillowcases will be a great summer project!
Quinipet November Retreat:
The dates for the November retreat to Quinipet are extended.
The retreat will begin on Thursday, Nov 10th (dinner is the first meal), then includes Friday and Saturday, with breakfast on Sunday, the 14th. There are still some spaces available. We will be using both houses (Asbury and Bobilin). The cost is $200 because of the extra day. Those who have already paid should give me an additional $25.
Pro Bono Quilts:
Mickey will not be bringing fabric or batting to the June meeting, but will be accepting quilts, so please bring them if you have them
Reminders for April 5 Meeting:
The 15” Quilt Block Challenge is due at the April Meeting! Remember- You must use a visible amount of the fabric that was provided in your quilt. Any design, technique is acceptable. It must be a finished quilt with batting and backing. Please put a sleeve on the back of it so we can display it.
It’s also the HONEY BEE RAFFLE- so bring your cash and win some baskets!
April Fools! That’s our fat quarter theme this month. Bring some April Foolish fabric–a fun and funky novelty FQ that makes you smile–and pick up a raffle ticket when you sign in at the Membership table. You could win a pile of smiles!
WOW! HQ now has 124 members! Do you know all their names? Of course not, so that’s why it’s so important for you to wear your name tag to each meeting. When you wear it, you’ll get a raffle ticket at sign in for a chance to win some fabric.
The volunteers were really busy getting those baskets together – don’t you wish you could peak inside them?
Emmet supervised, and made sure all the baskets were wrapped and ready to go for our meeting on Tuesday!
